Cat Poo in the compost !

Posted: 21/04/2013 at 13:40

don't forget that the poo of these verminous animals are a health risk.if silly lazy owners don't use litter trays then these animals will act wild.

my advice is get rid of the contaminated area by digging it in deep down,then get a gun for these free roaming animals.a pet is contained,one that isn't is wild.

i have successfully propagated the hardy low growing osteos,is it a case of the bushy bedding ones i am keeping are just annuals?i thought the bedding ones were half any case i will take cuttings and store them in my outbuilding.

would September and softwood cuttings be best?

if a cat poos in my garden can i treat it like a rat and have it dealt with as it isn't acting like a pet is it.come on any cat that isn't house/litter trained is acting like their wild forms and aren't pets,they are vermin.

why do people let cats be cats.why is it accepted that,that is what they do.

cats.hate them.if they are pets then why do people let them poo where ever they cat owners know the meaning of pet,wild animal,domesticated and bone idle?answer  is no,yes,no,YES.

people who own cats without litter trays are like people who let their dogs poo on the pavement but ten times worse,as the dogs don't kill small animals and birds and they don't deficate in peoples gardens.

the government should have all cats dna registered,so when they poo in the garden you can get the neglectful owner fined.most of my neighbours have cats without litter trays,so i asked my neighbour one day where her cat poos and she said she didn't know.i will tell you it was in my garden where my two young kids play.if she doesn't care or know then she isn't fit to own a cat.

try wilkinsons for seeds and plants.i just bought some wilko seeds for 3 for 2,at a total cost of £1.20.around nov go down and get half price or cheaper on spring bulbs as they are making way for Christmas.but always try your local nursery as these will be home grown and more aclimatised to our weather but most importantly you  be helping to support local businesses.a nursery near me sells perennials for about £2 for a two litre pot.

also try local plant sales,there are two near me.they consist of cuttings,self sown and divisions for 50p upwards
