What's the best way to keep a cat from using your garden as a litter box?
Our neighbor has five cats that are insisting on using a corner of our garden as their own personal outhouse. It's actually quite nasty!
Chicken wire is the best... other alternatives may be harmful to cats such as mothballs or cayenne pepper... and others require too much work in my opinion such as water squirt bottles when you catch them.
I topped the neighbors cats from using my garden as a litter box by using an old fashioned method.
Place orange PEEL (No orange just the peel) around the plants or where they are going.All I can say is it worked for me.
Thanks to my elderly neighbor.

Why won't my cat just pee in the litterbox like a normal kitty?My cat has a litterbox. He poops in it faithfully, but never pees in it. He pees in the corner of the kitchen near where his food is. Sometimes he pees in the corner of the bathroom.
