I'm so tired of my flower beds being giant litter boxes.

Hey Dana!

I know exactly how you feel as my neighbors cats have used mine as that. Only thing is their kids probably torchured them. I also haven't seen the cats in a while and I am wondering if the coyotees got them. :( Too bad because I love kitties, just hate bad owners!


If you go to your local nursery or home improvement center, etc you should find a product called invisible fence. You follow the directions (basically spray on) and the smell will keep them away! Garlic salt is supposed to work, but I couldn't tell if it really did or not. It ended up raining the evening I put it on! But at the same time I never saw the cats back...

If you don't mind those wire fences you can always get that to put around the beds. This is a new one to me: "Get a scarecrow impact sprinkler that is motion controlled. It comes on loudly, runs for about 10 seconds in an arc and scares the cats away"
