  • Orange peels!!!!!!!

    My husband swears by it! Just put orange peels every where on top of the dirt around the flower bed. It may look trashy for a few weeks, but until they learn to stay away, do that.

  • Moth balls. You can get a box for like $1 at the dollar tree. It will make your yard smell like Granny's attic, but hey, that's better than cat pee. LOL

  • Moth bals are pretty toxic; stick with the orange peel.

  • I added pretty along with practical! I bought bags of white marble chips and covered the ground between my flowers with them. My cat stopped messing with my flowers and it really made it look nice! They aren't too expensive either.

  • Cat's don't like the smell of orange peels and the feel and sound of tinfoil. Wonder if you can come up with something made of tinfoil for your garden. Check with you local pet store and see if there's anything you can put in your garden to keep the cat out.
