Cat problem
I have 4 cats and a lot of problems with my neighbour. He resently built a sandpit for his daughter and now all the cat in the complex uses it as a toilet. How can I stop my cats from using the sandpit as their new toilet.

Hi Lucy

You get something from the vet called Footsack. This is a spray that cats do not normally like. You can also use cottonwool soaked in citronella oil. Ask you neighbour to put this all around the sandpit. That will probably be the only way to keep the cats out. It will be something that he would have to renew every 2nd day at least, but I am sure this should solve the problem with all the cats.
