Thank you all. I will definitely try these anti - cat remedies. I wonder though if I would be inviting monkeys with fruit or vegie smell. I know monkeys come, they don't stay because there's nothing for them. Our garbage is locked up so that monkeys/cats do not make a mess of it. Monkeys are not a problem, people are (those who feed them or have something for monkeys to feed on). Jon1 is aware of these problems.

I am contemplating buying an air pistol to give them incentive to never come back.
I have a sling shot that I bought in Kentucky and a few cats and dogs in our area have felt the sting of a rock on their puwet! If you see any bb's let me know because I could not find them, and rocks curve too much!

An air gun would be better but you should be careful about showing it as it might be mistaken as a real gun.

One of the things I do is take flaked chili peppers and sprinkle it in the garden when the cats walk on it they later lick their feet and they will start to avoid that area.
Some items you can't spray on the flowers or plants

Hardware stores sell the BB's and air guns. That sling shot sounds awesome, haven't ran into quality commercial grade ones just the locally made wooden type with rubber bands, those really suck.

Air guns are pricey and cheaply constructed though, pump type run about 2,500 pesos' the higher quality one is 3,000 peso's plus but runs on cartridges, that might get costly.

Amazingly enough, an airgun or BB gun here in the Philippines is classified as a firearm and will get you deported.
The sling-shot ides sounds like a good cure. Rather than a rock though, I'd try to find and use large rock salt. At close range it truly gives and keeps on giving enough discomfort that once is usually enough for each cat. Works well on dogs too.

Pretty cool. But I would hate to try and site that law to the PNP--being a foreigner. Remember we are talking about the same law enforcement agency that will at times charge a foreigner for a traffic accident on the grounds of "If you were not in the Philippines, the accident would not have happened in the first place." No thanks, not me. Hahaha...

How about a paint gun? I am sure that would give them a sting and it would help me identify if the cat is a return offender.
