What can one do with neighbor's cats that poops on your property? And, I am not talking about one or two cats.

These cats go on to surrounding neighbor's front yard, back yard, side walk, poop and make the surrounding smell. Is there anything one can do about this?

How about bringing it to their attention?

I was thinking more about calling animal control people, but your idea might work.

Google "predator urine."

When I had a problem with a nuisance racoon, animal control recommended coyote pee around the trash cans as a humane solution. They won't go near the trash cans for food and will move on to an easier target. The urine is apparently so effective that the officer cautioned me not to put it around the trees because the animal will not come down and will starve. Wolf pee is supposed to do the same thing to prevent cats. They also have other urines for various other animals, including iguanas, based on who their natural predators are.

My neighbor trapped and removed the animal (illegally) before I even ordered the stuff so I don't know if it would have worked, but the animal control officer was pretty confident and said others had great success with it.

The "urine" thing might work, but it's expensive and need to be applied on a weekly basis or so. It can cost $$$$ a month.

What about mothballs and vinager? Anyone try those and did it work?

I've used citrus peels on top of my car which was a convertible, and cats loved to sleep on the top. Seemed to help. I'd write a note to your neighbors though and maybe attach an article on the dangers cats face if allowed to roam outdoors.
