I remember a neighbour would dry citrus peel (mainly orange) and then whizz it up in a blender to powder. Now that really kept the cats away but, and it's a big BUT, it had to be replaced every few days.
They love my wood chip in the back garden and the gravel in the front. Now I let things like Forget-me-nots cover everywhere because the cats don't like to challenge well established roots!

Cats - how to deter them from my garden and veggie plot;
I haven't really got any constructive solutions to offer on this problem but you may find the following hilariously funny;
Yes, you read that right, mother-in-laws!
This has been a long standing discussion in my house as I found out to my dismay that my lovely (that's open for debate ) MIL uses a water pistol to deter her neighbours cats from entering her garden.
Let's put it this way, she doesn't tolerate cats full stop. Thinks they're a nuisance.
The disapproval on her face when she first discovered I am a huge cat lover and have 3 housecats of my own.
I sometimes joke with my husband that if she comes round we will have to do a stop and search for that water pistol!!
Meet one of my little ones. She's the most looniest and comical cat we have had and I have had many cats over the years. Crazy cat lady is an underestimation! Her name is Luna. Or Loony Boogle! she's part Bengal.
(Hope it's ok to upload a pic of her here!)
Your lady is gorgeous!
