Perhaps a quick search? There's a recent discussion on cat repellents about "unwanted cats" around the property. Read through it.

You're asking *the internet* for ways to *get rid of* cats? Cats *control* the internet, man!

Option one: Get your own more aggressive cat
Option two: Spray them with the hose, they hate it, and it does not hurt them at all.

I trained my cats not to claw the furniture etc. with a squirt bottle when they were young, it works well.

Find your local cat rescue, and talk to them.  They'll help capture them, get them spayed and find them homes.  There are plenty all over.

hi I had that problem and discussed it in cat repellent thread.  I had tried for months with different products both commercial and home made repellents no success.  Then from Easytek I bought the scarecrow sprinkler. Been bliss ever since.  Still see the cats they will walk along top of fence but they steer clear of the property now.  It was only thing that worked. Cost $180 so expensive but was worth it in the long run.

You may also find this video instructional, or at least therapeutic.

I have had a simular experience.

We had a neighbour, who has cats. Our dogs keep them away. However this neighbour had the cheek to report us to animal control and the council because our dogs would bark during the day while we were not home.

It turned out that our dogs were just barking at her dam cat which liked to sit up in a tree in our yard, or on our roof.

Told our neighbour to keep her cat out of our yard and the barking will stop ... luckily our one dog got hold of her cat, injured it. Cat has not been back since and our dogs no longer bark during the day ...

Just deal with them in the same way you would deal with expected cats, but try not to act surprised.

Install an irrigation system that covers your section. Run it at random for short intervals. (e.g. 100 times a day for 10 seconds).

As nobody owns these cats why not just call the SPCA?

Thats what they there for?

Like I said, find a local cat rescue, they will help to get them spayed and find them homes.  It's no good just scaring them off, then they will just find somewhere else to loiter and breed.
