HELP: Plants that cats don't like

Ok, it seems there's a bit of a cat infestation in this area.. My main worry was always dogs and there's preciously few of those, but ... loads of cats.

Do plants/trees/shrubs/herbs exist that you can plant that cats don't like? I'd prefer plants that actually trap and eat cats, but failing that, just something that will make my garden less desirable to cats will do.

The last option would of course be to just get a dog, but then I'm not sure if the solution wouldn't be worse than the problem..

Googled Cat repellent:
Quote:
Cats are generally known to dislike water so a well aimed bucketful or a squirt with the hose will certainly make an intruder run. After one or two dousings it may learn the lesson and stay away.
To protect plants and borders both mothballs and citrus are said to be effective deterrents. Place the mothballs, orange peel or lemon rind in the borders. Alternatively spray cloths with orange scented air freshener and place the cloths around the plants you wish to protect. Other known cat repellents are cayenne pepper, coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, lavender oil, lemon grass oil, citronella oil, eucalyptus oil and mustard oil.
Certain herbs are said to deter cats. In particular rue but not catmint which has the opposite effect. Coleus canina is another plant which is marketed by one merchant as a cat repellent.
The broadcaster Jerry Baker has suggested treating your yard with a tonic made from chewing tobacco, urine, birth control pills, mouthwash, molasses, detergent and beer. A smallholder has reported success using dried rabbit blood but you may feel that the ingredients listed in the previous paragraph should be tried first.
If you visit your local garden center or hardware store you will find several cat repellent products on sale. These range from electric water sprinklers and ultrasonic devices to sprays and granules.
Motion activated sprinklers act in the same way as a burglar alarm using an infra red detector. When the cat enters the area covered by the detector the sprinkler shoots out a jet of water to scare the animal away. It is claimed that, after one or two encounters with the jet, the cat will learn to avoid the area.

Found it, dont know if it works or not...........



Scaredy Cat, Scardy Cat (Plectranthus caninus) (Coleus Canina).
Attractive half-hardy plant with grey-green foliage which gives off a strong aroma especially when touched or in the sun. The aroma is disliked by most cats and dogs. Our resident cat reacts strongly to the smell!
In summer it produces heads of pale blue flowers which also give off a strong aroma.
If planted in a container this can be moved around the garden, thus protecting different areas of the garden from unwanted attention from cats. The pot can then be over-wintered in a frost free area.
Full sun or light shade. Any reasonable soil.

How do they get into your property?

I have heard the orange peal solution. But you'd have to have oranges for breakfast EVERYDAY.

Edit: Apparently the Cats A@#* (sic) is a product called Silent Roar.

the fookers have just about ruined my basil shitting in it. I've finally had to start staking up my tomato plants and I'm just going to make small little fuking pungi sticks for their asses. Maybe when they get their ass stuck a time or two they'll figure it out. I hate cats.
