I remember yonks ago that people used to place transparent plastic bottles on their lawns, filled with water. I have no idea if this worked or not or where the idea came from, I don't see it being practiced today so perhaps not.

I thought that was just for dogs. Could be wrong and it for cats too.

Someone at work told me the plastic bottles were a social experiment in the US, to see if they could get people to believe it works.

We have a dog that delights in chasing cats, unfortunately the dog still craps on the lawn despite the plastic water bottles... ;)

Re the bottles..: Perhaps covering the lawn completely would stop the cat and dog parcels being deposited...

Plastic bottle hoax was started by a Kiwi many years ago. ; ).

The suggestion about an air rifle is nothing but advocating animal cruelty. Use of air rifles many times results in nasty internal injuries which the animal will carry for some time in severe pain. There are many stories you can find on NZ media about animals and pets affected by this. Most of the time I think it is probably unsupervised kids having 'fun' but many adults can be that stupid and nasty as well. I linked some stories in an earlier thread on this subject.

I suppose the idea is to be a better shot then! :p

/And no, i don't support animal cruelty. Just before everyone jumps down my throat for it.\

I did hear last night, a cat must have touched the electric fence. a very unhappy cat sound came from the garden direction!
