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.
