Silent Roar came out on top in a survey by BBC Watchdog into cat deterrents for the garden. They found that after just 3 hours of putting the pellets down, no cats visited the garden!

Silent Roar used to be sold as a cat deterrent, however the natural make up of the product has prevented the manufacturer getting the product the necessary new EU certification for chemicals, as it's not a chemical and the make up of every batch of lion poo is different as it depends on what the lions have eaten. This means as deterrents are regulated by the EU law. The product is now sold as an organic fertiliser - but the product is exactly the same and nothing has changed! Apart from the fact we can no longer legally say it deters cats.

Below is the old text from the site - for reference
Your lovingly tendered borders can now be kept free from cats' poops! Just spread the pellets over vulnerable areas to keep the cats away. The pellets are soaked in real essence of lion dung and are then dried and sterilised. As cats are territorial, even the bravest of pussies will retreat when they smell a lion has been there first!

This is an environmentally friendly product and contains no artificial chemicals. During normal weather conditions, one application can last up to three months.Although not recommended by the manufacturer, customers have found that this product also seems to deter squirrels, deer and foxes.


  • Spread the pellets about 3-4 inches apart
  • Handle the pellets with the gloves provided in order to keep the human scent off the pellets
  • Wash and dry hands after use
  • Keep out of reach of children
  • After heavy rain, sprinkle a few more pellets to boost the scent

Supplied in a 0.5kg box
