I have a cat sleeping on my back pourch furniture at night. The cat belongs to a neighbor. I don't want to haul the cat off or certainly hurt the cat. I just want it to stay off my deck and my furniture. I like to sit on the pourch early in the morning, drinking coffee and watching the birds feed before going to work but there's always cat hair and sand all over the furniutre. Is there anything I can do to get this cat to go elsewhere?

quick answer, not really unless you are happy to squirt strong lemon scent on your furniture, this often puts cats off. The only other option is to place some sort of cover over the seat like a piece of plastic. i have used that plastic designed to cover tables in the past as it comes in great designs and looks quite good, well better than a plastic bag. it also helps to protect your cushions etc from the weather. It doesn't have to cover the whole chair just the seat. I find that some cats don't like to sit on this as it is not so warm and comfy, so you may find that after a while of doing this the cats decide to go elsewhere anyway.
