  • No, this is not good manure. No fecal matter that comes for a meat eating animal makes good manure - the risk of parasites that YOU can catch is too high.

    There are different products on the market to help keep cats out of vegetable and flower beds. Take a look at the pet store.

  • Ohhh mister kitty is going to hate you! You can place cayenne pepper throughout the flower bed, when he goes to dig his little hole, it will burn his little nose, and he will stay out of there. I worked in
    a vet clinic for years too, it wont hurt him. If you catch him in the act, just spray him with a squirt gun or spray bottle.

  • i'm not sure, but isn't urine acidic, and wouldn't it eventually harm your plants? i know my son's urine killed the grass! he was in the habit of peeing off of the porch, in one area, and before long, the grass was dead.

  • I have used old coffee grounds to keep cats away from an area.

  • I agree, cayenne pepper- or crushed red pepper- is tried and true on many animals. Works on the kitties in the garden and I also use it around the shed to keep the mice out too.

  • I put white marble chips around my flowers in the flower bed. It looks great AND kitty doesn't want to dig in the stones.
