Default cats - how do you

How do you get rid of cats from your garden?
I love to work in the yard, but it stinks a lot in the morning.
I wash the car port with detergent but with the rains this does not seem to work anymore.
I see them being fed or feeding in garbage in the neighborhood.
I hose them away, but they seem to come in the evenings.
I hate the smell, I'm ready to kill them.

I am going thru the same issue. I have been throwing rocks and such at them (even spraying them with water) and now they run when they see me. But not a solution. They now come and rest under my porch when it's raining. There are ways to kill them but I am not really wanting that. I am contemplating buying an air pistol to give them incentive to never come back.

I have the same issue but my wife is allergic to them, (she winds up bed ridden) they used to get inside the house from second floor window but I installed screens. I can't get rid of them because the neighbors and family members can't live without them.

The other options wont' work, cat is either to smart about tainted foods, they won't eat them or if caught will wind you up in trouble, if you decide to take kitty for a ride and dump the cat off and someone see's you, you will wind up in jail with fines.

Get someone from "Animal control" you might have to tip them... its' the Philippines, to pick up strays or unwanted animals but this will solve the problem temporarily and then more cats return.

I used to throw rocks also but this won't work and neither will spraying them with water but moving the food or garbage farther away from the house if possible, will help.

The problem is that no matter what you do about your garbage, if your neighbors aren't so fastidious they will still come around.

In subic, we deal with the monkeys too who are worse as they travel in gangs (10-20). For me, the attractant for the cats is to get out of the rain (my covered porch and carports).

I know of a couple of nasty ways to get rid of them but I don't advocate that. The other problem is that these animals are strays, never vaccinated and run the risk of carrying/getting infected with rabies.

I am sure that the Subic Freeport Animal Services unit would get a good laugh about us complaining to them about the stray cats.

Pogibaby,

Unfortunately for ESV and I we have some housing guidelines that we have to abide by. We can have dogs as long as we keep them under control and not too excessive barking. However, it's very hard to get permission to fence your yard. That leaves you with a dog on a chain/leash and I don't want that.

Now I am reconsidering my position on the cats. I may just choose to keep the toms away. I just found a dead rat on my back porch, (clearly killed) placed like a gift in front of my beer fermenting freezer.

Default Skin The Cat

Just today I was in a Purgold store in the Angles area. While getting some items for our puppy, I saw a product that is supposed to get rid of (not poison) cats and even dogs.
I don't know the name or if it would be effective. Just happened to notice something on the box that it will keep them away..

I've read also that if you bury boards around your house with nails sticking up a little they'll clear out due to the discomfort of walking on them.

Don't you then run the risk of stepping on a rusty nail?
