Is there a natural repellent that I can use to keep strays from using my shrubs as a litterbox?

Try laying some moth balls around the shrubs. (09/27/2009)

Try orange and lemon peels. Cats hate the smell of citrus. (09/28/2009)

I use coffee grounds (used) and tea grounds (used). It works very well to keep the critters out of my garden. (09/29/2009)

Yes, citrus! And please do not use moth balls in your yard! Not only are they not a 'natural' substance, but are also highly poisonous because they are made from two dangerous chemicals and can be deadly not only if ingested but also from the fumes they can create! (09/29/2009)

I have coffee grinds all over my garden because my Philodendrons and Hydrangea love them. But apparently all the cats on my cul-de-sac have no sense of smell. Including my own. I even paid $ for 'Bobcat urine', and that doesn't even stop them. I love cats, but I hate they are using "the big new litter box". They are uprooting my spring flower buds. (03/26/2010)

Please don't use Pinesol or Lysol, as both contain phenols, which cause kidney failure in cats!

[From Wikipedia] The main concern about the use of mothballs as a snake, mice, or animal repellent is their easy access to children, pets, and beneficial animals. Leaving them in a garden or in a living space unprotected makes it very easy for unintended victims such as children and pets to gain access to them. Mothballs are highly toxic when ingested, causing serious illness or death. In addition to this, using a very large quantity of mothballs in a basement or a living space may cause serious respiratory problems in people living in the space. [1] (04/09/2010)
