Cat deterrent

Hello all. I have just watched a video on you tube, where it shows a variety of cats being frightened by cucumbers! I may try putting some around my garden.

    Plenty of £1 for you Hosta...cumbers won't work even if some clips are amusing, at the expense of cat's being scared witless. If you sneak up and put anything near a feeding cat it will jump ..Don't imagine you can sneak up in a garden image if you are there the cats won't be image

    Thanks for the info, I will forget about the cucumber.
  • Bannnas work better. They contain a chemical that is the same as one bees release when they sting.

    Nothing can keep a determined cat out. Best solution is to get yourself a cat, but even that isn't guarenteed to work either.

    I was given a contraption which shoots a jet of water at passing moggies - well that is the theory.  In practice I have never seen a cat being zapped but it is expert at getting me right between the shoulder blades as I try to outsmart it by sprinting past to the compost heap.

    Ooh Esspee, I could do with one of those to shoot cold callers!  Trouble is I suppose it would get legit. visitors like the postman.....  :/
