Keeping Cats Out of a Pond

How can I keep my cats and neighbor cats out of my pond? They are eating my fish and frogs.

Thank you,
Noreen from Dover, PA

Try either netting over the top of the pond ( the most economical approach), or a motion activated sprinkler (more costly than netting, yet more effective-- available at most home and garden stores).

Hi Karen...

My Brother-in-law had the same problem with his pond. What he did was measure the pond area and he sunk chicken wire just below the water line (you can't see it at all) and the cats and other critters can't get any of the fish out. You can still feed your fish and do everything else..I hope this helps.

Have a GREAT summer !!!

Get the chicken wire for the fish because of the prongs

I would think the chickenwire would hurt the fish because it's metal

Just to add to what Sherrie wrote, you can use the large gray bricks with holes in the middle to support the wire and the wire will hold the weight of the critters and the fish can swim through them. This is how the local nursery showed it in their pond.

What we did was take PVC piping and make a shape of the pond itself and apply netting the best part about this is that you can actually take the net pick it up and remove the leaves and also keep the fish safe
