My Neighbor’s Cute Disgusting Unhygienic Annoying 5 Cats
So what we do we do? I’ve been on good terms with our neighbors for ten years. Now they have five cats up from one. I recently built a playground for my kids in our backyard. The neighbors’ cats now use our wonderful sandbox as their personal litter box.
I tried talking to the neighbor, but he brushed me off saying that his father used to rid his sandbox of their neighbor’s kitty poop with a shovel. He said, “What’s the big deal?”

I do hate answering pet questions that bring on a barrage of comments, but perhaps other pet lovers have dealt with your problem successfully. Feel free to comment, pet lovers!
There are organic safe-products to deter cat paws from mucking up your sandbox. Look for them in your area and online.
Alternatively, it may be less expensive in the end to create some kind of wire netting to place over the sandbox when your children aren't playing outside.
