Keeping Cats Out of the Garden

I was reading on my cat calendar how cats hate the smell of chamomile and the smell of marigolds and if you plant those in your garden the cats won't dig in the garden much.

I was thinking if you were to put one of those air freshener things that go off on their own. If the cat sees it and sees that it can't predict when the air freshener spray will go off, I doubt it would ever go near that garden again. It kind of depends on how smart the cat is, but if you set a simple alarm clock to go off while the cat is there or hide a walky-talky in the garden and the cat doesn't know where the sound comes from then, it will stay away too.

I love cats - they are smart and they know how to take naps. Mine don't like any kind of spraying noise. If they hear it, I suppose they might think it is a hissing snake or another hissing cat.

Two things not to use are mothballs and black pepper (the pepper is fatal to cats). (06/17/2010)
