    If you can hear it inside your home, doesn't that mean your cat can also hear it, whether or not he/she is going near the neighbour's property?  Sounds like animal, child and adult-with-young-ears cruelty to me!  I hope the council manages to sort it for you. 

    Could you put something tall next to your fence to cast more shade on the solar panel?  If not, I would be fighting fire with fire and playing something back at her to cover the noise, preferably something you can tolerate (knowing you put it there!) but that she would find annoying.  Let the other neighbour know what's happening - if she's affecting their child, I'm sure they'll be okay with it for a while.  

    ETA: You can get some very annoying 'cats singing' videos on YouTube!

    My friend suggested painting the top of the solar panel on it black so it doesn’t work! I’m not keen on touching anything though - don’t fancy vandalism! 
    As it’s been cloudy, it hasn’t been going off which has provided so much peace and quiet. Work will be opening full time soonish so at least I won’t be working from home every day!
    Definitely worth putting something of just the right height the other side of the fence though. What sort of fence is it? Could you messily paint it? and maybe a few splashes go through onto the other side ... 
    Still knitting!
    Completed: TWO adult cardigans, 3 baby jumpers, 3 shawls, 1 sweat band, 3 pairs baby bootees, 2 sets of handwarmers, 1 Wise Man Knitivity figure + 1 sheep, 2 pairs socks, 3 balaclavas, multiple hats and poppies, 3 peony flowers, 4 butterflies ...
    Current projects: pink balaclava (for myself), seaman's hat, about to start another cardigan!

    I’m laughing at some of these replies, they’re brilliant! 

    My colleague suggested I start putting my TV up load/playing music a bit louder when the noise is happening, so I’ll be doing that! If she complains, I’ll tell her I can’t hear The Walking Dead over the constant scream! 

    Cat isn’t bothered at all now, seems her attempt to stop him going out all together is a failure. I feel like that’s peeing her off more than anything hehe

     My neighbour put up a cat alarm that was also faulty. Made a double screech every few seconds. Drove all the other neighbours mad. I told him it was faulty as we shouldn't hear it. Gave him some cat deterrent granules and told him to cut his foot long grass.
