How do I stop cats from killing my plants?
I have tried EVERYTHING to stop the neighbor's cats from peeing on and killing my flowers and perennials in my garden. He is an unaltered male so his urine is strong. Over the years I have spent over a thousand dollars to replace plants. Do not suggest talking to the neighbor as that has not worked. I have tried the following: upside down mouse traps (to scare, not hurt the cat), plastic forks in the ground, chicken wire over annuals (he pees through the wire), lemon slices, pines cones, motion activated sprinkler (which had gotten me and my husband MANY times), sonic noise maker, pepper flakes, coffee grounds and many types of commercial repellants. Nothing has worked. Every year I have to replace the dead flowers that the cat "waters" over and over again. Any additional suggestions or should I give up?
