Cat scent!

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 07:36

The smell left behind will encourage your cat to go back to that place; after all I was taught to litter box train the cat by putting their poo in the box so you might be worth at least removing an inch or two and maybe putting gravel /  slate on the pots to protect them.


What you also need to them address is where will your cat go now? Will you be encouraging them to use a provided tray of loose soil somewhere nice and discrete that you can clean up easily? Perhaps with a cat nip type plant nearby to encourage them that this is their area of the garden.

Morning all. No sign of frost here when I was up earlier. Now snuck back to bed with his lordship (snoring away happily) and Reggie (also snoring away). At least I have my mug of tea for company.

At work all weekend; it's been desperately quiet recently I hope we get more visitors soon!

Fairy trouble is he was meant to be the one cooking. I've had to call his bluff and made myself soup. Hopefully he might offer to cook tomorrow.

How organised Panda! Well for the wedding at least ;)

Desperately hungry but his lordship who is insisting on cooking tonight says he wants to eat later as he doesn't feel like eating. I'm seriously considering going to sit in the car and working on that half melted packet of wine gums. :(

We see snow in late May. But I'm afraid my plants have to tough it out!

Morning all. The weather is proving quite changeable and doing its best to play havoc with my trying to organise my brain. I woke up at midnight freezing and had to get a hot water bottle! These new tablets are going to be blamed because at least I can focus my lack of beauty sleep on something easily changeable that way! 

Working all weekend but I'll try to nip in and keep an eye on you all!

Afternoon all!

Quite an odd day at work and now sitting in the garden BUT it's too breezy to be comfortable unless I hide in the greenhouse which really needs a clean and tidy.

Mind you that can be said of the whole garden. :/

Confession to make!

I haven't gotten ready for winter yet much less spring!

I'm very ashamed.

Go by my gardening approach: slap them in't mud and see what happens.

Not that I'd ever abandon bulbs in a cool dark dry shed like that.... oohh nooooo (three trays full of the damn things: I don't even remember putting them in there!)

Morning all.

I'm sure I wasn't this tired when I went to bed.

Pat; I hope HRH is improving. Pets are such a worry! 

I looked at the news to find Princess Ann was knocking around Ulley Reservoir where that very morning I'd taken Reggie for a long walk. I bet she'll feel happy to know that *every* post she walked past had been pee'd on by him.
