Cats in the garden.

Cats in the garden.

Near my house, we have several stray cats which have amused my wife and I for the last six months with their antics. However, I recently dug out a thin bed for my leeks, and the cats now seem inexplicably drawn to that particular furrow in the ground, especially to do their business. Unfortunately, after they do that, they seem to do the burying thing, which so far has contributed to the deaths of two of my leeks. I've spent months on these plants, so believe me, I'm not pleased. My wife, however, won't allow me to call animal rescue or do anything offensive like spray them with a mister when they go too near. So on to the question, my fellow gardeners. I have a bed that's five by one that's stuck between my house and the driveway on the short end, so fences would be extremely difficult to erect. Is there any other way you can think of to get the cats to take their business elsewhere?
