I heard oranges cut in half works as the cats dont like the smell and also clear bottles filled with water and lay them around the garden they dont like that either, maybe put bottles of water around the trunk of the tree where the bird box is?

Thanks for the replies folks. I've just bought a sonic thing that hopefully will work.

may borrow a friends dog and cover it in garlic and various citrus fruit.

Couldn't you get the dog to do it?

Not sure that human urine deters cats anyway, but apparently male human urine deters foxes, at least that's my excuse when I get caught pi**ing on the flowerbeds at the bottom of the garden, actually I just can't be bothered to come back up to the house and take my muddy boots off!

Default cats in the garden

there are several things that are surpose to help.

black pepper sprinkled around the boarders of your garden. would have too be repeated after rain so not great atm lol
orange rind grated around your garden,
some say a chaps wee around the boarders of garden this is good for foxes as well
a movement detector that then sets something off that scares the cat. we had a haloween gargoil that screamed every time the cat went near soon stopped it pooping onmy flowerbed lol.
you can get a cat shaped cut out metal thing that has shinny eyes that scares the cat off.
and some garden wind spinners can deter and frighten the cat away
also a squirt gun if u are about and catch it in the day. hope that helps

<yawn> Someone had to come out with some sh*te like this didn't they!

Maybe if the owner was known, they could be educated about the dangers their pet is in, being allowed to roam free (roads, dogs, idiots with airguns, etc), & also of the danger they pose to wildlife.

Coleus canina, a small plant that deters cats by its smell, can be planted near problem areas, or potted & hung.

Napalm worked for me

I've also found that pepper works.
