Not a dog trainer, but in the words of Victoria Stillwell, "There are no bad dogs, only bad dog owners." (feel free to substitute idiot for bad Very Happy ) If it is a serious dog question, send me a PM and I'll see what I can do. If its in jest, I have lots of suggestions, only none of them are politically correct.. Dance

My dog is a beaut to be honest. She was very hard work at first, having come to me with three legs and a mutilated tail. God knows what happened to her. She's not a bit of bother now in comparison. She's just very idiosyncratic and daft. But thanks for the offer. It's the bloody trees I need the help with dude.

to cover the "why would larger cat poop have anything to do with keeping cats away" issue. If the excrement of a large cat was left in the vicinity of the bonsai, the house cats will be scared to go anywhere near it. It works very much in the same was as how dogs mark their territory. The larger the dog, the less likely his area will be taken over, all able to be told just by the scent of the urine. Just works with cat crap this way around. Does it work...yes....would i suggest you do it...no. Buying a stand for your bonsai at the local greenery is always a possibility, if that is a problem...expand? And if u are in an apartment...ur SOL Very Happy

Next time you are at the grocery store, pick up some powdered garlic.....NOT garlic salt!!!!! Sprinkle some of the powdered garlic on the soil in your pots and the cats will no longer use that as a litter box. Repeat every two weeks or so.

Everything you need below:
Sturdy bench, a friend to help out with the lifting, a bag, sack or cardboard box, quick trip to the shelter. Had a cat once for 2 days, peed in the dining room one day, gone the next. No offense to the feline lovers out there.

Had an English Mastiff for years....best pet ever.

Another serious feline question...

The thread has been inactive long ago but for the economy of the forum, I would like to post here my problem with my two cats.
They keep eating some trees' leaves, i.e. olive's leaf, lantana's leaf etc
Some of my trees are protected within a kind of a "kage" Very Happy My space is limited on the balkony so I have the oleas europeas put where the sun and air can give them extra force for growing, a vitis vinifera too.
Do you have any suggestions ? Do you know of any chemical repellent?
Thank you!

I lost my favorite tree to my cat who used it as a litter box. The poop was bad but the urine killed the tree I am sure. I saved a tree (or like to think I did) by removing it from the urine soaked soul and repotting it in fresh soil having first rinsed the roots. We are now down to a managable number of cats and keep them with a fresh litter box.

Do you know of any chemical repellent?

You can always try grinding the hottest peppers you can find in a blender, then spraying it around the trees and even on the leaves. the cats will be "unhappy" for a good while, though, so don't go overboard. A little dab'll do ya.

Guest wrote:Bobby. Someone told me once that to keep cats from pooing in your garden, you should visit your local zoo and ask for some big cat poop. Why on earth you would want to replace something horrible with something completely repugnant beats me!!

I was going to mention this. The animal wildlife park not far from here sell it to gardeners. A friend of mine works as a gardener in the Lake District and he has used it to keep Deer away. Apparently it makes them think there are lions in the area so keep well away.
Another one to consider is to rub Vics Vapour Rub around the pot/tray. I used to rub it on our garden wall to stop dogs peeing against it and I think it seemed to work. Cheap too and if there's any left you could rub it on your wifes chest. But only if she gets a bad cold of course.
