My neighbours cat likes to jump on our window security screens. I think she is after bugs or geckos but its actually pretty freaky if she does it when all the lights are off. Im also worried about her damaging the screens.
What is the best way to deter her? Ive tried citronella but it doesnt seem hugely effective (also most of it goes through to the glass anyway).
Any other ideas? Not chilli - I like cats & I dont want to hurt her.

Interested to see if anyone else has a solution!
If we catch our cats in the act, we give them a spray with water, but most often they do it when we are not watching. We only have standard flyscreens and have replaced them more than once

You can get a spray from the pet store called 'scram'. It worked a treat for keeping my cat out from under the stairs (we used the pellets but it comes in a spray). It's totally non harmful to the cat, they just don't like the smell.

Kitties *hate* lemon. Squirt the areas you don't want kitties to mark or climb with lemon juice diluted in water.

The best way to stop this in for your neighbour to keep the cat inside. Have you told your neighbour this is becoming a problem for you?
Failing that, a squirty bottle on the jet setting.

They dislike lavender also.
I'd also speak to your neighbour though, in most places its actually against coucil regulations to let your cat roam outside your yard, cats should be kept safe inside or in a cat enclosure.
