I have stray cats come into my yard. They dig up my bulbs and also poo in my yard. No matter what I do I can not get rid of them.
A friend of mine uses rubber snakes. She places them under her carport to keep cats off her car. So maybe a few rubber snakes can keep them out of your yard/garden. Just don't forget they are rubber when you walk out to enjoy your garden! (08/30/2010)

Try cayenne pepper sprinkled around. Replace after rain or watering. You can buy a large container at Costco, inexpensively. (08/30/2010)
I have read that putting moth balls around will keep them away. (08/30/2010)
Moth balls are toxic to humans and animals. DON'T use them.
I found keeping my water hoses connected, a blast in the face was a reminder. I now have a dog and don't have issues either. Being consist will send the signal of which yards to stay away from.
For creating a noise factor, bang a foil pie pan with a cooking spoon and run after them. I work too hard to have others cats or animals destroy my yard. Mine do not leave the property (leashed) nor do the kids damage or destroy anyone else's. So I expect my neighbors with pets to contain or control theirs. No excuse accepted. (08/30/2010)
