          So I've had a good read through this thread after getting fed up of cleaning cat poop up or going over it accidently with the lawnmower (although most of it is off topic and complete waffle in relation to repellents!).

          I'm going to go for the Catapult Animal Repellent spray due to it containing the aluminium ammonium sulphate. I looked at the Scat-a-cat pellets they do but they are the garlic based ones.

          Vitax Stay Off Ready To Use spray looks very similar too.

          The cheese grater and citronella candle idea was not something I fancied doing!!

            The best deterrent we had was the cat that adopted us and lived in our greenhouse. He kept all other cats out as well as dogs, foxes, squirrels and badgers. He only allowed birds and looked after them with a passion, never killing them except for the hawks that went after the birds. He even let the baby pheasants play with him. :dbgrtmb:

              Wonderful; thank you. One of mine used to try to play with the resident pine marten. Who did not know what to make of that.

              Our cat protected all the birds and we have a lot of stories about him. His motto seemed to be 'Two legs good, four legs bad'.
