What do you know...I thought cats lazy around all day licking their coats and trying to catch the unknowing bird...or at least that is what my mom's cat used to do. I don't know about cats, what I do know about is dogs and gardens. My dog completely distroyed my garden so I placed some of his "droppings" in the holes he made. And he never touched my stuff again. Maybe cats will be put off by a dropping here and there in your herb garden...gross i know...

my thomas drinks water from a drip in the bathroom. quite often he will come for a pet and his whole head is wet. must get under it once in a while. cats are curious creatures, so that is part of why thomas does it.

hi I have found mothballs work quite well as a cat deterrent, the cats around here are a pest; one has ripped my polytunnel in several places and made cat paw claw holes all up one side are his owners liable for damage? I have been trying to catch him on my tunnel with the hosepipe.

Mothballs might not be the best choice in your garden as they are highly toxic. See this link for info.

The hose...now THAT is the best option. Or a sprinkler system you can turn on at will. Heeheehee.
