A cat keeps cr*ping on my driveway

I've got a stone chipped drive and I think a local cat must be mistaking it for a kitty litter. For the last few days, cat dumps keep appearing just outside the front door (ready to be stepped on), or appearing on the lawn.

I have not actually seen seen the cat, but judging by the size of the dump I would say it's definatley feline. Any tips to stop the bugger desecrating my property?

and the lawn to lol

Ultrasonic hey... sounds painful. Not bad if they work.

Don't cats hate the smell of used tea bags or is that foxes?

Anything with citrus. Tesco do an All purpose Cleaner called Daisy and it is citrus scented. Mix a strong dose and spray it all over the drive.
Your drive way will smell devine and hopefully keep the cats away.

Pet shops sell all kinds of sprays and pellets etc!

Same deal as above, but possibly guaranteed to work or your money back!!

Cats don't normally dump on lawns and usually like to completely cover their shit.

Are you sure it is not a fox marking its territory?

Either way a large dog would help.

When I was a kid, my Mother's cat went potty about the smell of Jeyes Fluid. It loved the stuff and rolled all over the floor on which it had been used!

Not sure about foxes (which is probably the cause of the problem)

We'll it could be a fox I guess, but I've not seen any foxes around here for the 4 years I've lived here. Can't rule it out though. Definately too small be a dog unless it's from a Chihuahua.

lol @ where this thread is going.

"get a big hungry dog or some lion shit from the garden centre might struggle to get a lion though"

Lion shit lmao! Replacing cat shit with even bigger cat shit isn't something I would consider a solution
