CATS

Posted: 17/12/2014 at 16:05

Very short,,,,, we also had huge Huge probs with cats untill my other half was in tears, I was advised (after spending a lot of money on fences etc to spray Jeyes ready mixed fluid on our boundaries and around any newly disturbed soil that Kate might have planted in etc,Result a few days no cats in the garden,nothing got hurt including my ignorant neighbor and  in 7 months only 2 deposits,,we have since moved to wonderful Norfolk,I recommend Jeyes and Norfolk Jeyes for the cats and Norfolk for the people, good luck give it a try.
