We have a problem with the neighborhood cats using our back yard as their own personal litter box. It seems like every time I walk on the lawn, I step in cat shit. Something had to be done.
The back corner of our yard is their favorite spot to enter and exit. You can see how they've eroded the top fence board in the photo above.
We looked into various repellents, but none seem that great. Fortunately, Chrissy discovered that cats apparently hate walking on chicken wire, so we decided to coat the top of the fence in it.
Right in the corner, we folded the wire to be several layers thick.
We also caged in the corner area so they couldn't jump up there. Hopefully this will deter them from coming through our yard in the future.
