Keeping cat from pooping on porch??

August 26th, 2008, 02:46 PM

I am new to this site and wondered if anyone had suggestions on how to keep a cat from pooping on the porch (on our furniture cushions, that is). Our neighbor has an cat that spends a lot of time outdoors and he has taken to pooping on our porch. I guess the cat has taken to sleeping on our porch and pooping there, too. We have a large dog, but this is not, apparently, a deterrent (our dog sleeps inside at night, with us).

I have a newborn son and spend a lot of time on the front porch. I don't want to be dealing with cat poop on furniture that my child is on. Also, I don't want to use any "products" that would be harmful to my child, dog (or the cat, I just don't want the cat on the porch...pooping). My husband said that putting duct tape, sticky side up, on the furniture would make the cat dislike going up there...

Any suggestions?
