Strange cats coming inside and urinating everywhere.

So /an/, I have this issue that is starting to really wear me down and i am getting to the point where i am going to move house to escape the problem.
My elderly cat and i live in a two bedroom little house and we live nextdoor to a lady with 6 cats. It is also the season for cats to start coming into heat if they are not fixed.
For the last few months cats are pissing everywhere. All over my garden, all over the porch, all over the car.
If i leave a door or window open, the cats nextdoor come inside, eat mycats food/pee on his food and bed.
He likes to sun himself on the lawn during the heat of the day (he's an old boy and has earned that right), but they sit up on the fence and stalk him.
The lady next door owns 6 cats, i have tried talking to her and animal services, but her cats are all well cared for, well fed and legal.
Along with her cats monstering my cat, there is about 7 other cats i have noticed around the property, using it as their personal sleeping/fighting/fucking playground.
Basically i am prisoner in my own home from these cats, i cant open doors or windows and my own cat is not handling the stress of having his area invaded constantly well.
Please, /an/ what do i do?
Chasing them and squiring them with the hose does not work.

Most of you know this, but this sweetner is lethal to dogs. Pic related is highly toxic. At 1.1g xylitol a piece, 5 pieces would be lethal to most good sized dogs. Theres 40 pieces in that pack.
I say this because I was careless. I don't know how it happened, but I came home one night to see that my dog had chewed up a package of Orbit. I was terrified. Luckily that particular flavor didn't contain xylitol.
If you ever suspect your dog has eaten something containing xylitol, which could be a toothpaste, nasal spray, lozenges, mints, candies etc. induce vomiting right away with hydrogen peroxide and call a vet. Really wish they would quit using this stuff.

I feel so bad for those dogs, they weren't bad dogs, just under appreciated.

Wolf expert Geneviève Carbone said the scenario was unlikely as “wolves don’t approach villages and are invisible most of the time”
“There have been a few attacks on man, but these are extremely rare and happen in very precise situations, such as in India, when young children were struck when they were along and above all very weak.”
Jean-Marc Moriceau, a wolf historian, said : “One has no right to claim wolves don’t attack man, that it’s just a legend.”
He has gathered records of 10,000 wolf attacks on man in France from the Middle Ages until the early 20th century. Some 4,300 such attacks were by rabid wolves, while a further 5,300 were victims of “predatory wolves” that targeted “children between five and 15 as well as women who worked in the fields and prairies,”
