Just Spray It
by: Anonymous

I took a spray bottle and put half water, half white vinegar and some chili powder and sprayed my plants and surrounding areas. You must re-apply after you water/rains but the smell is too spicy for their noses.

Mouse Traps In the Garden
by: Ray

I use mouse traps. I wrap the part that catches the mouse with a thin strip of cloth about 6 inches long. It will keep the trap from closing. Put several around your garden. When the cat springs one it will scare the bejeezrs out of it. It also works in flower beds and keeps them off the car.


ANSWER:

Ray, you are a genius!

Cats in the Garden
by: Derrick

Besides a BB Gun, or a cat trap from the pound, is there any way to keep the local cats from using the garden as a litter box? My daughter helps out and I don't really want her picking up a new "dirt clod".

ANSWER:

I don't know of a good way to keep cats out of the garden. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this?
