Not one but 3 cats seem to like the nice soil in my raised garden beds. They are becoming giant litter boxes.

    Try using plastic forks sticking out of the soil. Along with that make a spray using citrus oil and water.

    boil orange peels in water then cool and spray wherever you don't want critters they hate the smell

    A friend of mine swears by lavander. She says the cats don't like the smell and it also keeps deer out of her garden. She plants it all around the edges of her beds.

    I had this problem, last year. We have our garden fenced in and our neighbor's cat was jumping the fence to use it as a litter box. We went to the dollar store and bought out their pinwheels. We used safety ties and put one on every fence post. The cat stopped visiting immediately. She was afraid of the movement. We also put them around each of our beds to discourage rabbits and groundhogs. So, even if your garden is not fenced, I would still advise you to put the pinwheels right into your beds. The animals are very skittish of the movements, no one gets hurt and no chemicals are involved. We enjoyed the colors and laughed about our great crop of pinwheels. Good luck!
