Yesterday I related the issue we are having with the neighbor's cats coming to hang out at our house. Today we are going to get some of the suggested and more humane methods of discouraging the cats from using our back patio as their private lounge.

In response to my story from  yesterday I was sent this video which appears to be a very effective method of cat removal from automobiles. I don't think I will be trying this method.

We don't have an upstairs above our garage and it looks like it really could hurt the cat. Any suggestion you have about keeping the cats out of the yard would be most appreciated. Again I don't want to harm them, I just want them to stop making my dog go crazy.
