Any good ideas on how to keep cats out of my yard? The people across the street feed them and let them live under their shed so the cats are not "moving on" except to hunt and do their "busness" in other yards. I have tried Cayenne pepper, egg shells, moth balls, orange peels, and even managed to spray a few with the garden hose to no avail! I have a "pet cemetary" in the back corner of the yard with all the birds they have killed and left lay. They have soiled my compost so I can't use it for any food growing, and my flowers take a beating from them tramping over them. I can't afford those fancy motion detection water sprayers I have seen advertised...I need an inexpensive way to keep the cats out of my yard. I am an animal lover so I don't want to hurt the cats, but my patience is drawing very thin! Thank you for any help you can give me.
