Keeping Cats Out of My Yard

How can I keep the neighborhood cats from pooping in my yard? I have tried (scarecrow) an electronic pet repeller, but they have figured out a way to go around it.

Put mothballs all along the edges of your yard. (12/07/2010)

Forget the moth balls they don't work period. Critters just walk around or ignore them. Not much you can do as they will go where they want to. But you could try spraying some coyote urine from time to time. I have seen it in Home Depot and Tractor Supply. (12/08/2010)

I have the same problem (also in PDX). This time of year it's a little tricky because of the weather, buy I have found that a good sprinkle of cayenne pepper in and around your garden works like a charm. Grocery Outlet usually has big containers for under $3. Since cats generally clean themselves after doing their "business", they end up licking the cayenne pepper off and associate the burn with your garden. Try to apply in between the rain and reapply after any heavy downpours. It takes a little bit of time for this to work, but it has never left me down. No more poop in my raised beds! (12/09/2010)
