My 'big mean' dog likes to lick my barn cats.

I can always tell when she's been at them, because they're all spikey haired and covered in slobber.

Not scared of my own big mean dog.

But the cats are...rightfully so.

One of my 'mean' dogs has a cat history that did not end favorably for the cat.

Darn cats do not like it when a greyhound picks them up and shakes them for some silly reason.

Nor do they like it when Dane puppies gang up on them to 'play'!

Barn cats have no sense of humor. My house cat has no problem retaliating against my two dogs when she deems in necessary in very creative ways.

I guess my garage is way different than most. No place for a cat to get in.
My garage works the same way . As long as all doors are shut the cats can't get in. Basically, the one cat that does try to sneak in, is really quick at sneaking right back out again if my husband glares at her (and he's the one who parks in the garage). They know they are not allowed in and will leave when a human comes along.

OP - it may be a losing battle, but I agree with making where you want them to be as comfortable as possible; repeatedly shoo them out of the garage and they may eventually get it. It may take much repetition and vigilance on your part, unfortunately.

Good luck.

Can you get them a cat house? Cats are pretty territorial. If you get a large enough shelter for them, feed them there and make it comfy for them, maybe they'll just ignore the garage. You'll need to place it far away from the garage. My sister, at one time had a whole shed for her cats. She kept their food, beds and it had a kitty door. They very rarely wandered far from it.
