I would do this the natural way if I were you. By using peeling from fresh oranges and lemons you take them and spread them around the area you don't want the at in. Coffee ground is another great item to use to keep cats off your patio. The last one would be to take aluminum pans and add vinegar to them and sit them around the edge of your patio. Cats and dogs don't like the smell of any of these items and normally a combination of two work well together. Just figure out the two you'd like to try and check to see if they are working like you want.

There is no one good solution that will work with every cat.
I know someone that had a similar problem and she just kept spraying them with water and it finally broke the 'habit' and they stopped returning. She kept a good spray water bottle near her door and just checked her patio when she had time.

This is annoying but you cannot use chemicals and it's not much fun to have all kinds of things/stuff scattered on your patio because it takes a lot of this stuff to protect your patio.
This site recommends using this stuff but has other suggestions also.

Some people say to have two pans (that will make a lot of noise when beat together) near the door and make a loud noise every time you see them.

ThriftyFun has some answers also.

Do you already have an automatic porch light that comes on with motion sensors? If you don't installing one might do the trick.

If you alrady have this, then one thing that will work for sure is a motion- sensor water sprinkler.
