I need ideas for preventing the neighbor's cat from pooping in our yard. We have 2 acres (unfenced). Timbre finds the cats poop and loves it just like our last lab,.......this sucks because it stinks and he keeps running back to these areas.
fill bottles of water and place them around the yard, when the sun shines on the they create reflections which cats hate. alternatively put pepper on the grass....not sure how good the pepper would be if your dog is there but i used the water bottles and haven't had a cat on my grass since.
We have the same exact problem with the cat poop situation. We don't want to deal with trapping the cats as they are feral and seems like a major pain also I'm sure they would be quite nasty when caught. What's worked for us is using orange peels. Once we find the spot where they have been pooping we dump a bunch of orange peels there. The cats apparently hate the citrus smell. And so do the dogs so it will keep them away too. Of course this is not real solution but just a detterent. It definetly works for the garden which is where we had the biggest problem as the cats thought it was their own outdoor litter box. However, the peels are acidic so you dont want to go crazy with them in the garden as some plants may not like acidic soil. Anyway hopes this helps.
