Pets and Your Garden Part 2: Cats

Published December 21, 2012 by blmercier91

While cats are not usually as destructive to your garden as dogs, they can still be pesky. Cats can defecate in your garden, attempt to pounce on a bird that’s on top of a tomato plant and tear the whole thing down, and while their digging isn’t as bad as a dogs, it still does harm. If there is a cat digging in your garden, try adding sharp, pokey things into the ground, such as pine needles. The scarecrow sprinkler, which I talked about yesterday in the dog article, will also repel cats. Catnip and cat grass are also a way to give your cat an alternative to being in your garden.
