Next door but one neighbour has a 6 month old cat that has taken to digging and pooing in the bark on the front of our house! I've caught her at it so know it's her. Every single morning now for a fortnight I have had to go out and sweep the bark off the path back onto the garden. I went into Wilkinsons yesterday to get some repellant and was told it was the wrong time of year to buy it, as it's put out with the garden stuff in the summer! So, do cats not dig in the winter?? We'll be putting the Xmas lights up soon, and that includes 4 tiny Xmas trees with lights on that I put between the bushes. If the cats still digging, it'll go through the wires!
