Feline Invaders.....AKA Cats

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 19:05

"always get the standard answer, that cats are wild animals and therefore cannot be trained". I'm afraid they're right, Justin, whether you like it or not. Experts will tell you the same. Try soaking teabags in diluted Jeyes Fluid and spread them around the garden, lightly covered with soil. Should work, if not, take it easy and get a cat yourself, it will chase the others away and also give you much pleasure!

Which garden hose should I buy?

Get a reinforced one that won't kink and it's worth spending a bit more on brass fittings. The plastic ones crack and break after a while due to UV-light and changes from hot to cold weather.
