I know this post will annoy some of you that have cats and that is not the intention, but it has really really ANNOYED me!
Where we live almost every house on our Street has cats with the majority actually having 2 or more. This in itself is not the problem.
The problem lies with the fact that over a dozen or so of the hairy critters have decided to not only destroy our flower beds but also to use every spare area as a litter tray.
Last year I planted a lot of moneys worth of plants and bulbs and nearly 90% have now been destroyed… to say I am annoyed would be an understatement!
These cats spray and sh*t all day long, the moment one cat leaves another arrives. I have tried using the humane methods such as sonic devices, orange peel, lemon juice, super soakers and more commercial methods like the cat be gone products. However nothing keeps the blighters from using our garden as a public toilet.
I know cats are lovely creatures and I don’t wish them any harm however my little boy has every right to play in his own garden without getting covered in sh*t and without us having to wash down his toys every time he wants to play as the cats have sprayed up against them a dozen times since the last use.
How come I am cleaning up after them yet I don’t even get the benefits of owning one!
Any ideas anyone on what we can try? … at the rate its going my wheelie bin will be full of them (THIS IS A JOKE – maybe not a good one but still being pi**ed off doesn’t extend to humour!)
