I find this to be bad advice. Both practically, ethically and legally... bad advice!
Instead, get a Marshall stack in the yard, crank it and play a few power chords whenever the cat shows up. When the other neighbours come complaining, blame the cat lady...
Over the years we've has a few cats start showing up and digging around. I had immediate and lasting success with a super soaker. Patience and stealth is required waiting for the confrontation but it was well worth it. We have way more problems with dogs, rather dog owners, in our neighborhood.
I find this to be bad advice. Both practically, ethically and legally... bad advice! It's not easy to drag out a full stack every time the cat does it's stupid cat stuff. You can't limit the sound to the offending neighbor so the other neighbors are dragged into the row. The police will eventually be called and he'll be the new pariah of the neighborhood.
Unfortunately, because his neighbor is unreceptive to opening a dialog, the simplest solution is to eliminate the root of the problem.
That’s the best idea yet
If you’re having cat problems in your garden, you’re probably not planting them deep enough.
Back in my urban days, the answer was air rifle with cleaning letters. Safe, quiet, just scares them and made great sport.
For bigger cats up here, it is SSS.
If you're handy, slightly geeky, and have a sense of humour, this chap has the solution.
Call local animal control. They give ideas and steps. Maybe coyote spray.
Like posted earlier, I used a repellant. I think it was coyote urine granuals, worked great
I hate cruelty to animals. People that perpetrate it are tw@ts.
The cat's being a cat. Get over it.
Let a bigger cat mark the territory. Essence of lion droppings...
I like the Cat Repellant idea. I guess...what...you open the lid, stuff the cat in there and float 'em down the Snake River? Or the SuperSoaker...nice way to have a little fun. Even teach your wife the nuances of stealth and getting a little chuckle out of blasting the Kitty in the mug. Or...
A feral cat can “be a cat”.
But once you adopt a cat - it’s your rules/society’s rules .
Responsible cat owners don’t let their cats roam.
If you have a cat and let it outside to do what it wants - that’s being a lazy human and just giving in because it’s meowing by the door.
Don’t be a halfass cat owner, old German lady !(or anyone else)
Your neighbor doesn’t want your cat in his yard !
Super Soaker filled with Kool Aid.
Use it on the neighbor.
I generally agree. And honestly would never hurt the animal. Or any other.
But that cat doesn’t pay property taxes.
We have dogs in the neighborhood that bark endlessly. Authorities won’t do anything about it even though we have a solid dog ordinance. If I were to stand at the fenceline and scream at the top of my lungs for six hours, I would be charged. If I were to go into a neighbors yard and destroy their garden I would be charged.
Freedom isn’t free. I pay for my rights. With cash.
As soon as that cat pays my mortgage, it has the right to dig in my garden.
My idea was to turn a problem into something you enjoy...
The root of the problem would be the cat lady, right?
I have heard people here in the u.k. tell of buying lion dung and urine to keep cats away, no idea if it works as i dont have trouble with cats though there is one little cat which likes to wander in to my motorbike shed and sit on the bike while im working..a biker in a past life perhaps?. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silent-Roar-Lion-Manure-Repellant/dp/B0002B7OT2
