Cats in Gardens

Posted: 23/01/2014 at 20:22

i have a catapult which i use. when i see them, i send a pebble towards their direction and they scamper off. when they see me walking on the streetor hear the sound of the key turning in the back door they scamper off. i still go round every sunday to scoop a few parcels they leave during the night. its very bad around this time of year, when the garden is virtually bare.

some of these modern day cats have become lazy. they care so much about their appearance they dont like to keep their paws dirty, so they just do their business on the grass. u only find out when u step into something soft or a bad whiff follows u around the garden. it makes me so angry . i have tried so many products but when it rains,  u start all over again. the worst time is the winter thru to spring when the ground is bare.

i think there are not enough ladybirds to feed on blackflies and greenflies this year . i have so many of my plants affected but i dont want to use insecticides.
