Default preformed pond help and other gardening tips


hi, people. i'm new to this so i don't know if i'm in the right place
and if so if you could point me in the right direction, that would be
helpful.

anyway, i have installed a preformed pond. i've put the water in but
yesterday realized the soil around it was sinking so i flattened it,
added more soil and repeated to build it up. the pond is a lotus
preformed pond the capacity is 1200 litres. i have this filter/pump in
mind:
'eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace' (http://tinyurl.com/cqzucjh)

the reason i have come on here is to ask this: the cable comes with 5m
of cable and i need at least 10m. can i buy an outside extension cable
like this, 'eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace'
(http://tinyurl.com/chwwc2r)
and plug the it in and tack the wire underneath my bamboo wall fencing?
i don't really wanna dig and wrap in pipe as it means digging again.

also, any general tips on keeping cats out the garden, time before
putting fish in, do i use pebbles on the bottom? many thanks.

Not being from the UK and knowing your system there, all I can do is offer
advice on cats. Cats wont usually fish and get themselves wet. There is no
safe way to keep them out of your garden other than one of those cat-proof
fences. I've been putting up with a neighbor's cat now for years but it
never bothered the fish.
