    Probably the best way to keep other people's cats from fouling in your garden is to get a cat of your own.

    ...or a Doberman...

    Depends on the doberman though. I know one who is the softest berk you've ever encountered. Doesn't seem to realise he's meant to be a bit scary and is probably afraid of cats.

    Dogs don't deter cats. You'd need a bloody good whippet to get close enough to a very slow cat in a typical garden to actually bother it. The dog will shit in your own garden anyway, so it's a self-defeating idea anyway.

    My daughter's dogs know exactly who the boss is. In cold weather, the cat will sleep on them!

    But what about Canada, where Bipolar lives? Late to the party again, beaten by John.

    I read that as self-defecating. :confused:

    Most cat/dog encounters I've witnessed the cat wins. The most memorable one was ages ago, I saw this lovely cat who looked at least half Bengal in one of the local backstreets and as he was strutting past this staffie slipped its lead and chased the cat into a nearby block of flats
    "It's okay" said the woman whose dog it was "He likes cats"
    Moments later we heard a banshee like wail that ended in a lot of hissing and just a few seconds later the staffie ran out, tail between legs and blood pouring from its nose! Dogs have very sensitive and above all soft noses and cats have razor blades on their paws!

    I have a photo somewhere of the result of a fox-cat stand off. The cat is on the grass, the fox is on the stable roof!

    I wander what the real reason is for the compulsory chipping of cats?

    So you can match the number on the chip with the number on the menu at the local Chinese...
