GOOD Friday was a beautiful, sunny day marred by the discovery of a disembowelled baby bird in the back garden and I then discovered another dismembered bird on the front lawn.

I don't hate cats but I hate what they do.

Why are they allowed to roam through the neighbourhood, fouling the flower beds and murdering the wildlife?

If dogs did the same thing, there would be a public outcry.

Has anyone any ideas of how to make my garden cat-proof? I've tried ultrasonic devices and cat pepper, to no avail.
