Does anyone have a simple solution to keep wandering cats from the neighborhood from spraying around our flower beds and house? I am trying spraying ammonia around but with all the rain, I am spraying about every other day and not sure it is really working. We can barely stand to go outside sometimes. I think Petco sells something to spray, but I want something that will not wash off in the rain.

Wouldn't ammonia compound the problem? Cat urine is high in ammonia content anyway.

You are attracting them with the amonia, use vinager instead we have 4 cats and the neighborhood toms now and then come over, solucion VINAGER, it also kills the smell.

I am not sure how big your property is, but used coffee grounds sprinkled around the parimeter of our small snow bird lot has solved that problem for us.
I found the answer on line.
It took a while for me every day to collect our used coffee grounds.
What I did was concentrate on the place where the males were spraying and then once they stopped there, I work on the perimeter

I'd consider a motion activated animal deterrent/repellent sprinkler. Scarecrow and Orbit are the brands I've heard of most.

This is what we did. Only problem is when you forget it's there.

We have a spray bottle of some stuff we bought at Lowes that kept cats out of our strawberry beds until the deer ate them. an't think of the name right off hand, but should'n be hard to find at Lowes or a pet store. I've also found the pack of coyotes has thinned the cats down to 0. You can have them if you come and catch them. No cats or anything else will be around to dig in the garden except them and armadillos, and bears,raccoons, and porcupines.

We had a similar problem when we lived out west. We planted a herb called Lemon Balm. It has a fresh lemon scent that isn't over powering. We put one at each end of our flower beds, about 20ft apart and never had any cat problems after. It is an annual, so has to be re-planted each year, but worked well for us.

Cats don't like citrus, so they stayed away.

Plus, it can be used like any other herb. Cut, dried used for cooking etc.
