Spring Must be Here if the Neighbor's Cat is Using my Garden Bed as its Litter Box...

Monday, March 9, 2009.....

Most people think Spring is around the corner if the Groundhog does not see its shadow on February 2nd, or when you enjoy a weekend of 70 degree weather. I would agree that these events could lead many to thinking Spring is right around the corner. For me, it doesn't.

Spring comes when the neighbor's cat decides it is time to start using the front flower bed as its litter box again.

Why can't it go where it went all winter? Why am I the lucky one to be over powered with the smell of cat pee when I leave my house?

The best part, if there is one, I've caught the cat doing its business and it has acted like I just walked in on him during his most private moment.

Scaring the cat away does nothing and I'm trying to figure out what will work. Who wants a flower bed with some supposedly fragrant flowers now smelling like cat pee flowers?

Any suggestions how to stop my garden from becoming the neighborhood litter box?

Just to let you know,~ there is a spray that you can buy at most pet stores that will deter kitties from messing in your yard and/or certain spots. (That line made me LOL.)Thanks for starting my day out right!

Angelsroy - Oh, I am so excited to hear this. I thought I was going to have to stalk the cat and retrain it to use a litter box.

I was going to say you can lie in wait with a spritzer bottle of water, but angelsroy's idea sounds much better, since it doesn't involve you stalking someone else's cat...

LiLu - I'm not above stalking a cat if I thought it would work, but this cat thinks it owns my yard.
