Do cat repellent spikes work?

Thinking of buying some plastic cat repellent spikes as my usual methods of deterring the neighbourhood felines is not being effective. They are fairly expensive to buy so I wondered if anyone had tried them and if so do they do the job?

    It depends a great deal on how the cats access your garden. Can they jump over the wall, slip through the gate, scramble along a branch? I haven't tried any method because I like cats, but I believe the water sprayers are probably the most effective because cats hate to be wet. They also avoid injury to man and beast.
