OT? Help with detering cats

Alternatively get yourself a cat.
It will keep others away and as you have discovered it wont crap in your own garden.

If they come into the garden via the same route, a cardboard cutout of a prowling cat with marbles for eyes (this detail important!) will deter them. They also don't like the smell of citrus fruit, so a good sprinkle of Citronella oil (local health food shop) will put 'em off. Stops them shredding bin bags too!

Yes, you can have a stinky "litter tray" indoors for the thing to soil and scratch in, which you'll have to clean, cat food to buy, feeding equipment to clean, vets bills to pay, possibly cat excrement in the house, a very unhygienic animal walking on your surfaces, possible incoming "foreign" animals coming in through the cat flap you've had to buy, fit, and clean/ maintain that promptly "spray" everywhere, furniture damage, and so on.
You could just shoot the interlopers for a permenant and simple solution. I have heard that a pressure washer with a "jet" nozzle is highly effective.
