Don’t get me wrong, I love cats! I have two of my own. However, I do not love my neighbour’s cat pooing in my front garden, particularly on the footpath so that it gets trodden all around the lawn and into the house.
In the spirit of frugality, I have been scouring the Internet for a way to keep the cat at bay that won’t cost me anything. Two easy suggestions are vinegar spray ( I have that as I use it it for cleaning) or black pepper, which I have a stash of in the cupboard.
I am going to clean up the poo and disinfect the path then try both at once to see if I can deter the little blighter. Fortunately my cats won’t be affected by this: my old girl won’t leave the house now until Spring – she is a fair weather cat – and the other one is just a baby so she won’t go out for another month or so anyway.
If anyone has any other helpful and cheap suggestions I will be happy to hear them. I will report back if the vinegar and black pepper works!
