Hello I will assist.

Cats do walk the Neighbourhood that’s what they. They have special rights in the Animal Act 1971 whereby they are not required to be confined like other animals.

However, it your cat if fouling in the neighbours garden repeatedly, then you are responsible to take steps to stop this. Your neighbour can complain to the council who could take an order out against you. But to do that, they would need proof the the cat mess is actually from your cat and not some other cat, so very difficult to prove.

You on the other hand, can complain about their actions of throwing the cat mess over your wall. You could complain to the council because of the anti social actions and what is also technically flytipping. You could also possible complain to the police For this type of harassment .

Can I assist further, here to help.
