Keeping Cats and Wildlife apart?
I was interested in the article about Cats in this months magazine as I have two. The way I keep them away from the birds is to feed the birds in the front garden - its tiny but all the wildlife is out there, frogs, toads, etc, the cats have to go round the block so they prefer to watch them from the kitchen window. It keeps the cats occupied and the birds safe. The other thing is to make the back garden somewhere your cats want to be so they are not wandering off and annoying other gardeners. I have a small garden, but there are a couple of trees for shelter , I have installed access ramps, both ends of the sheds where they like to sit, another upto the tree where there is a perch for them, they also have a little "house" they can sit on top of or inside and a pergola with a gravel board shelf they like to sit on too. So there are resting places, observing places, and long grasses for them to nibble. A clean tray indoors stops them toileting outside too. Thanks
