Does anyone out there want two stuffed cats? Or how about a nice cat stew? They are adorable but I am so damned frustrated right now I could happily skin the two of them. They have decided that one of my flowerbeds is their bed and another is their bathroom. Those products that are supposed to keep cats away from flowerbeds or wherever else you want to use it to keep cats away do not work. The cats sniff the stuff like it was catnip and then go on and do whatever they had in mind before they came across the fascinating smell.
And yes I have heard that “responsible cat owners keep their cats indoors.” Don’t even start. They like being outside. It’s natural for cats to be outside. I had one cat that lived 15 years as an indoor-outdoor cat and now have one that is over 10 years old that has always spent most of the time outside because she’s paranoid-neurotic-psychotic or something like that and tends to freak out easily when she’s inside the house. Except in the winter. It’s amazing how well-behaved cats can be when it’s freezing outside.
Anyway… I wish this came in giant rolls and was reasonably priced. I sort of have my doubts that it would work. Cats pretty much do whatever they want to do. They always find a way around whatever we humans do. And around here if it wasn’t my cats it would be strays, which we have to run off once in a while.
When I win the Powerball jackpot I’m going to install motion activated sprinklers in all my flower beds even though I am sure they would soon find a way around that too.
