Repel Feral Cats from Yards

Cats are naturally peripatetic (due to curiosity, fear, territoriality and mating) and even a pampered pet may prowl through a relatively large area. Feral cats are widely known for preying on birds, turning a beautiful garden into a litter box, upsetting garbage, building a niche underneath your porch and deck, urinating on your lawn, marking on surfaces, scratching tree barks, mating in your yard and digging up young plants and seedlings. It is therefore every yard owner’s desire to get these furry balls to stay away from their yards. While one strategy may be effective against a cat, employing several strategies would be more effective in keeping several other feral cats away from your yard.

  • To repel feral cats from your yard, erect a physical barricade around your yard. There is fencing on the market designed specifically for the purpose of keeping cats at bay within areas like a yard. Though expensive, these fences are highly effective provided their slanted top is pointed in the opposite direction.
  • Repelling a feral cat from your yard would be much easier if the things attracting them to your yard are done away with. Do not leave food scraps, pet food and garbage lying around the yard as this would only make it difficult for them to leave. Ensure trashcans are securely closed. Mice should be eliminated from the yard if possible so they do not attract predators (cats) to your premises.

Make sure relaxation centers and shelters are not provided for them in your yard. Close up holes and patches in your porch, deck and garage.

  • Cultivate cat repellent plants around your yard – if you are able to. Just as cats are attracted to certain plants, they are in the same way deterred by some other plants (works with only about 75% of cats).

Cats are sensitive to the scents given off by these plants and these scents are sometimes just enough to keep cats from stopping and pooping around your yard. These plants include Coleus canina (Scaredy cat plant), rosemary, cinnamon, lavender, black pepper, rue, curry plant and penny-royal.

Prickly bushes can be cultivated at points that might serve as entry for feral cats into your yard to keep them from entering your yard and causing the havoc they are known for.

  • Because Feral cats cannot be gotten rid of quite as easily as other animals would, it is best to employ a repelling technique that focuses on their senses of taste, smell and touch.
