For coffee grounds, it can be either straight from the can, or the
used ones. Spread them around a perimeter that you want to keep catfree.
In the mean time, talk with the neighbor, make them aware of the
problem, and ask that they contain the cat or get it fixed to avoidthis problem. As a pet owner, they have a responsiblity to keep
thier pets contained and out of other people’s yards.
You can also use amonia, but I don’t know how well that might workwith plants, grass, etc. Amonia sprayed on a garbage bag will also
help keep animals out of it.
