scaredy cat plant, does it work



  • I tried these plants and found it never worked in my garden so now I have two electric scarier and keep moving them to different parts of the garden as the cats get to know the aria of the censer hope this has been helpful.l

    Do you have a friend with a dog? I take my dog to a friends just for a run around the garden say once a month and this keeps the neighbours cat out as they can smell where the dog has been - invite a doggy friend over for a cuppa, you sit n chat and the dog wanders around ! sorted!! 

  • my daughter has a dog and visits regular as she only lives two hundred yards away and the dog runs around the garden as if she owns it but it does not have any affect on the cats the first thing the dog dose is to do her own toiletries but the daughter has to clean it up.

    I watered my neighbours cat a few nights ago and haven't seen it, or it's poo, in my garden since.

    I had tried and failed with skewers, anti cat pepper granules, bramble canes (These work but unless you want them everywhere...), netting and wire on top of fence.

    If the cat does come back (he's a nocturnal visitor) then I will take the leap and buy the 'scarecrow' motion detector water blaster. Gets excellent reviews. Cats do hate getting wet. Especially when they don't expect it.

    We use 'Silent Roar' and so do our neighbours. We have found it to be very effective and I haven't had a cat in my garden for over six months now. I did find that after scattering it at first a cat came straight in and poo'd on the pellets. I immediately placed a few more pellets on top of his mess and hey presto..  No more mess!

    My neighbour, who was dealing with several cats and had tried most things on the market, did have to wait a little longer before she had a completely cat mess free garden, but even she doesn't have any problem now. It really does work! You do need a little bit of patience, especially if dealing with more than one cat, but i believe a cat free garden is well worth it. All I do now is really sparingly scatter the pellets every four months or so and i really don't have any more horrible cats mess to deal with. I love Silent Roar.

    Sprinkle holly leaves about. Just watch out when you're planting or weeding. They're very sharp!

    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Hi.
    I bought 4 of these Scaredy cat plants and planted where the cats liked to dump. They worked a treat and are turning into a nice looking plant. Just looking to see how I can take cuttings so I can plant a few more around and give some to the neighbor.
    Anyone noticed that they smell heavily of cannabis??
