Water pistol is OK if you're quick enough (or a cup of water, thrown). Coffee grounds are also supposed to deter them too.
Cup? Why not a bucket of water? Especially effective in winter ... unless you leave said bucket out on the balcony, although a bucket-sized chunk of ice may also be useful ...

Coffee grounds? Are you supposed to force-feed them to the cat, in order to make it so hyper it can't sit still long enough to do its business?

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

I had a similar problem last year in my garden....the cats used the corner for their toilet. After googling for solutions, I sprinkled chili powder down. Worked until the next rain. Then bought "Katzenschreck", a mixture of deterrent spices from Landi. Again, worked until the next rain.

The solution: I ordered a movement sensitive water sprayer over the Internet (was from the US). That worked. Had it up for a few months...and then it did'nt even have to be hooked up to the hose anymore. Just the sight of it was enough.

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

I bought a mat once to stop my dog's climbing on the sofa, basically when they jumped on the mat it gave them a small electric shock, and stopped them doing it. I bought it in America and it was wicked.

Trouble is the cleaner sat on it one day without realising what it was, she wasn't too happy as it made her spill her tea......but you could get something like that

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

Thanks for all the great responses. Alot of ideas to think about now I'll stop in a pet store and see what they can advise. Sounds like the "odor" stuff only works till the rain washes it away, and since it's always raining in Bern I guess that's not a good solution The mouse-traps sounds like a good idea, but maybe a bit harsh, I'll save that one for last Water gun is out, as I don't have time to sit watching my balcony all day waiting like a sniper just to squirt a cat. Altho my kids might like that Motion sensors is a good idea, but maybe too complicated.

One thing I thought of meanwhile, that nobody mentioned yet, would be to get some chicken-wire and string it over the flower-trof-thing. That will let the flowers grow up, but still cover the dirt enough to keep cats out.

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

I have not read all the posts answering you yet and don't intend to. Here is my suggestion - Coop sell a play-sand (Spielsand) for children's sand-pits. There is one version of which contains an ingredient which apparently deters cats from doing their business. Perhaps sprinkling some of this on top of the earth on your flower pots will work. Pepper idea also sounds good, potent in small quantities I can imagine and harmless to kitty and your plants.

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

What now?





I rest my case.

Topic :

* When you catch cats in the forbidden area, you can try hosing them down with a Super Soaker or similar water gun. Such action may reinforce the notion that they are unwanted in your planting bed.

* The commercial cat repellent available is a powder called, "Shake-Away." Shake-Away bears the scent of the urine of predators that cats fear, namely, the coyote, the fox and the bobcat. This commercial cat repellent comes in a granular form, which you simply sprinkle around the problem area. The product is advertised as being organic, making it an acceptable option to use around children and pets. Nor will it harm your plants.

* Some plants give off smells that cats dislike. One such plant, Coleus canina, goes by the common name, "scaredy cat plant." As the second term in the Latin name indicates (think "canine"), it is also effective if you have trouble landscaping with dogs. Other plants often recommended for keeping cats away from yards are:

* rue,
* lavender, which deer pests also dislike
* pennyroyal

Try sprinkling "stinky" substances around the problem area, including:

* dried-blood ("blood meal") fertilizer
* mothballs (drop them into a can or jar, cover, and make a few holes in the cover)
* cayenne pepper flakes (but see below)

Note that mothballs are toxic, thus the recommendation that you use them in a covered can or jar. Avoid even this usage if small children will be in the yard and could, potentially, open such a can or jar. Note also that some people caution against using cayenne pepper in this fashion, saying it can be harmful to cats. So if you're an animal lover and tend to be on the cautious side, then save the cayenne pepper to flavor your food!

The hightech way :

Ultrasound devices such as Cat Stop operate on a high frequency. It's inaudible to humans but unbearable for cats. Installation is easy. You simply situate the device so that it faces toward the garden. A motion sensor detects the intruder's presence, and Cat Stop then gives off its high-frequency sound, scaring off the cat.

Boundaries
The first line of defence is to ensure that your garden boundaries are secure. Any gaps in your fence or wall should be blocked to deny low level access. But cats can jump so fix a taut wire or string some six inches above the top of your fence to deter this approach.

Arrow Dogs and no bare soil

Once inside your garden many people say that the best cat repellent is a dog who will soon see off any feline invader. If you are not a dog lover then you will have to resort to more passive methods. Since cats like to lie on freshly dug soil you should lay mulch on your borders so that no bare soil is left exposed. Seed beds should be covered with wire netting or twigs arranged as a barrier.

Arrow Tree trunks and water

Young trees should have plastic guards fitted around their trunks to protect them against use as a scratching pole. Your garden pond should be covered with netting to keep your fish safe.

Cats are generally known to dislike water so a well aimed bucketful or a squirt with the hose will certainly make an intruder run. After one or two dousings it may learn the lesson and stay away.

Arrow Scent to repel
To protect plants and borders both mothballs and citrus are said to be effective deterrents. Place the mothballs, orange peel or lemon rind in the borders. Alternatively spray cloths with orange scented air freshener and place the cloths around the plants you wish to protect. Other known cat repellents are cayenne pepper, coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, lavender oil, lemon grass oil, citronella oil, eucalyptus oil and mustard oil.

I have seen " lion dong " on the list also but where would one go and buy that, and not sure if it smells better then cat pee..

Then again you can open a thread asking " how to get rid of Lion dong smell " i'm sure we will be able to assist you

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

Ty to get a photograph of the cat in the act, take it to the neighbors, suggest they find a remedy or you give the photo to the abwaert.
Failing that get the volcanic decorative stones (a bit expensive if you are covering a lot of soil). My Mum used to plant mint- cats don't usually like it- mine doesn't.

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

The other thing that comes to mind for me is for you to utilize the same solution for keeping neighbor's cat OUT that I use for keeping my cat IN.

They make "cat nets" which you can find at many pet stores, use it to surround the open areas of your balcony.

You can purchase different "grades" of net (in either green, clear or white I think) at Qualipet, cut to specification - similar to buying fabric for sewing. Alternately, we got ours as a kit at Fresnapf as the net itself is both tall and wide so it not only wraps around but goes overhead (we have no "roof" over our balcony).

I hadn't suggested it before as while it does keep the cat in, it also makes it tough if you like to have planters along the top edge of your balcony railing as well as if you have bird feeders or similar. Perhaps before purchasing and installing one yourself, you can print print out a sheet with info about them to provide for your neighbor and stick in their mailbox as a "friendly" suggestion to them.

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

Nets & fences ... it doesn't have to completely enclose the balcony, as long as you can set it up so enough of the upper part is floppy. Cats will not climb up a floppy fence, they need the security of it being fairly tight. A guy in Australia who set up native wildlife sanctuaries with only native animals (and any birds that fly in, of course) has cat-proof fences - they go down below ground a certain distance, then have underground sections coming out perpendicular to the fence (to stop them digging down); the top section is floppy, so the cats won't climb up them. He just has to keep the trees outside clear of the fence, and the cats don't get in - unless, as happened once, some idiot throws one over the fence. An over-reaction to the owner's cat-skin hat, perhaps ...

Hahahaa... ugh. I think after potty training phase, I wouldn't go crazy for pee, never.

I don't think OP should go out of his way to suit some ill mannered cat of somebody else's. I know it's not the cat fault, but building constructions? Ordering some pricey stuff? Hello...?

Spraying does not work so much since it needs to be done repeatedly, over and over and over. Something with more impact...our cat responded well to us scaring him when he did something really evil, rolled up newspapers and a sharp super swift swap right next to him scared him out of the next planned mischief. But I think you got to catch the cat doing it, and honestly, who wants to invest in neighbors cat. Just take the plant in, for a while (or a garage, since it is probably a litter box, right at this point). And have a word with your neighbor, since he probably does not provide a litter box on his balcony, why should you..Or, ultimately, get a bigger, meaner cat.

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

Lion poo, I've heard that before, glad to see it here ;-). Water pistols also fine, though unless you're there every time it does it, it'll only be temporary. They will dig up gravel and mulch. Not thrilled about the rat trap suggestion, I'm hoping it was a joke... And please be careful about those sound devices - if the range is greater than your own balcony, it may stop the cat going back to its own home. To all those who suggest having a go at the owner, fair enough they ought to put a litter tray on their own balcony, but even if they have it may not make any difference and short of stopping the cat going out at all (cruel, if it's not normally a house cat) there's not much the owner can do - have you ever tried to tell a cat what to do?

Exactly, spraying Urine of a Lion might attract some other random randy lady lion, then what todo..that's a bigger problem if a lion starts to use your balcony as a toilet..On the other hand, it will keep the cats from stepping near the lion and your balcony = winner !

As for taking a picture and showing it to the owners, not sure how this will help..what can they do, tell cat they will keep his pocket money for that week,threaten to ground him for a month? No tv,no xbox..?

Nooooooo not the xbox !



Closer to the topic, building a small fence of a soft bendable matrial could be the solution, as stated by Araqyl they need something firm.

However be prepared to sacrifice a plant or two as cats will try, only when they fall or find out the netting is not a stable underground,they will stay away.
But to find this out they will go on it and probably crush the plant doing so.

Our cat back home loved fishing in the nextdoor fishpond, when the owner saw it he just used the waterhose, or a tennisball (not aiming directly for him ofcourse)
Last one didn't work that welll as our cat started to play with the ball

Another solution is to scare kitty, like the water pistol with frighten the cat,a whistle or something noisy will have the same effect..

Re: Neighbors Cat Sh**ing on My Balcony

---------
Ok, so after a few weeks now...

---------

I've tried just about every suggestion on this thread. I started out by putting chicken-wire over my flower-troff. It seemed to work for a week, then one morning I woke up and saw a nice fresh heap of cat-crap sitting on top of the chicken-wire On the bright-side, there was no dirt kicked ont he balcony, so I scored a minor victory there. But still, after that it became war ---no pitty on the kitty--- I set some mouse-traps and spikes along the edge where he/they come in (theres 2 or 3 of them). Every few days I would wake up and see the traps were set off, and I would see a wet-spot on the dirt where the cat peed, but at least no more crap in my flower pot And I did get some satisfaction knowing he paid a price to pee on my balcony

Now I built a small fence on the side of the balcony, and that looks to be working as well (well, so far a few days..). Also around my little yard (I have a balcony, and a yard on the side) I put up a 80cm fence that also helps to keep the cats out, altho I see them climb over sometimes, at least it keeps the lazy/casual cats out. I also bought a sonic-alarm thing, and it seemed to work 50/50. I saw it scare away one cat, but another one just looked at it and ignored it. I also got the "odor pellets" but not sure if they really do anything or not. They do smell really strong of some lemony scent, so maybe.

Anyway, it looks like this cat-and-mouse (or human-and-cat) game will go on for a while. I've tried every trick in the book: fence, spikes, mouse-traps, odor pellets, sonic-alarm, ...my balcony/yard looks like Normany Beach 1944... but just as the Germans lost that one, I'm also not gauranteed any success in my "War on Cats". Guess I have to just accept that, but keep battling anyway

Another trick is to remove the labels from 2L plastic bottles, fill them with water and plonk them in the flower beds. Cats apparently hate this too as it confuses them. This is also effective for preventing flies. Perhaps a bit unsightly though.
We used to do this for our cat as well as the neighbour's. Worked a treat, I have to say.
