If you are having issues with stray cats in your garden, then check out this video featuring animal behaviorist, Janetta Smith. In it, she discusses several natural methods of deterring cats from your property. If you are at a loss about how to get rid of stray cats, this video will give you some real insight!
Often, people get stray cats coming into their gardens and often into their house if they've got cats. Sometimes, they'll come through the cat flap areas. Obviously, if you want to deter them from coming in, the best way of doing that is to actually, first of all, you need to clean down the areas, specifically around cat flap entrances in and of the house or areas that they're coming to, using biological washing powder which tends to clean down the enzymes and use surgical spirit to go over the top which tends to get rid of the scent marking where they've scented around cat flaps and entrances.
So, if you do a rinse around outdoor areas, on patios, on decking, front door mats, those sorts of areas, that would stop them coming through. Also, a deterrent, which you can use to put around the perimeters of the garden is using lemon juice. If you use a third solution of lemon juice, a third solution of alcohol and a third solution of spring water, mix it up, put it in a spray bottle and spray it around the outskirts of the garden.
Obviously, be careful if you have got cats yourself because cats do not like the smell of that and it might upset them, but obviously, if you have got a cat, if you've got cats coming in, then please do that. The other thing is, people tend to leave out around rubbish days, rubbish bags with food or feeding foxes and other cats. If you refrain from doing that, because obviously cats will come in if they know they've got access to food in your garden.
Another way of deterring cats going to the toilet and coming in around flower beds is an old theory which if you get a glass bottle, very clean, fill it with half water, lie in down in the flower bed, put several down, cats hate the reflection and will stop them from going into the area. If you have any further problems, then obviously, you perhaps need to contact a behaviorist, but that's the way of getting stray cats not coming into the garden. .
