Thanks Nic, will think about the sticks

so far I have turned off/covered up the deterrants at night while I monitor if they are having any effect on the felines! Have only had the devices for a week and the worst offending cats were away on holiday with their owners at the time so no chance to test out.

The local hedgehogs seem to have hibernated – no sign of them for over 3 weeks now and only the wee mouse (and the slugs) on the webcam inside the feeder.

I was thinking of stopping feeding the birds in the garden because of the wholesale slaughter by the cats (the neighbour on one side has 4, the other has 3 although one is an indoor cat. There are also at least 4 from the wider area). My wildflower patch unfortunately also provides good stalking cover.
