Cat Pests

Cats!!! I love cats and have 3 of my own who stay indoors... unfortunately for my garden, not all cat owners in my area are as responsible or considerate... they are digging in the gardens and aside from calling animal control, who can't do alot without knowing where they live, I don't know what to do.... any tips to keep them and their poo out of my yard?!

Hi, Well animal control is a good solution since cats can get hurt by cars if running loose. However, you can also try spray cat repellents. The company Liquid Fence makes a good product that seems to work well discouraging cats from using parts of your backyard. You can generally buy it at home stores such as Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, or garden centers.
