stray cats keep leaving feces in a small dirt patch behind my flowers. The only thing that ever stopped them was a small stake with a buzzing apparatus on top. It went off every three minutes or so. Do you know where I could get another one? I staked in between the flowers and they never used the dirt patch behind the garden. It was actually meant to keep rodents away, but it kept the cats away too. No other repellents ever worked, but the device does.

Weitech is a company that specializes in this kind of product. Give them a call at (800)343-2659. If you want to try a less intrusive method, you can apply a thick layer of organic mulch, like leaves, straw, etc. on the soil to frustrate the cat's digging. Some gardeners go as far as to fasten chicken wire to the ground under the mulch. Hope this helps!
