It is one of those "remedies" you can find everywhere: if you have trouble with cats in your flower beds, cats leaving their droppings in your garden (or burying their poop) you should use your coffee grounds to repel them.
There is a question (without a satisfying answer as far as I'm concerned) about it on sister-site gardening 1, but there are a lot of references to be found (see below).
What I did NOT find however is any solid evidence, references to actual research, etc etc, so the obvious skeptical question is: Is this an actual working solution? Do coffee grounds repel cats?
(btw: there are several other items mentioned in various locations that might merit their own question, but I thought it might be too much to try and (dis)prove them all in one question.
