I need advice on how to prevent cats from digging and
defecating in my planting beds.
You want to keep your feral cats happy because happy feral cats keep mice,
voles, rabbits, etc out of your garden. Whether you use vinegar sprays
(repellant), aluminum foil, flattened chicken wire (to keep them from
digging/defecating because they don't have the natural surface they prefer)
or whatever else you find, make sure it simply discourages them rather than
actually hurting them.
