I like to feed the birds but of course this attracts the cats, who roam through my garden fouling my plants at the same time. I have tried Scardy Cat but to no avail, the cats did'nt seem to mind it. There are so many so-called repellents on the market, I wonder if any member has used one that is 100% success. I would be grateful for any help with this.

I've used broken egg shells before where the cats enter the garden, they don't like to walk on it. Also a spray bottle of water - when you see them give them a good squirt in the face and they'll soon get the message.
My cat on the other hand won't be deterred by anything!
Broken egg shells sounds a good idea, I will try that. As for the water spray - we have a big water pistol outside the back door, so that if we're quick enough we can give the cats a good squirt. I've heard about lion dung, have any members tried it, if so did it work?

Tried a Jack Russel?
Ha-ha, I like your thinking, and think that it's probably the only way!!
Sadly though, a dog wouldn't fit into our life now, so its back to the drawing board - any more ideas any-one???
A Scarecrow Motion Activated Water Jet / Sprinkler should solve the problem
Or, another one here.
The cheaper models don’t have the range that these two do. There are a couple on Amazon but have negative write ups.
Hope this serious suggestion offers a solution.
Just read you profile I would also suggest trying to make a large clear area around the bird feeding area that the mogs can't lurk and hide. I have both cats and dogs but the cats get the water treatment if they start to hassle the dickies.
