I think if you put crushed garlics into your watering can, then water around the edges of your garden, then this scent will deter your feline pests.

We use to 1/2 FILL A CLEAR bottle with water and lay them around the house about 50 meters apart cat's will approach it but never come back. Something to do with seeing there reflection in the bottle but i really don't know, but failing that you can take a dead starfish from the beach and they smell the ammonia coming from it and take off
