DETERRING CATS FROM GARDENS & YARDS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

While cats provide expert mousing skills, there are also HUMANE methods to keep kitty out of particular garden beds or off properties altogether.

*Always check with neighbors and local vet offices, shelters and rescues to see if the cat is a missing pet who can be reunited with his/her family. You can check out our Lost/Found Cat Link for additional information.

If a neighbor is feeding cats who may not be fixed, please contact us or your local no-kill cat rescue for assistance.  Local rescues can be found using zipcode through Petfinder.com or check with your local vet office and rescues at petstore adoption centers.

As cats are creatures of habit, consistent and repetitive use of HUMANE deterrents is very effective in creating an aversion for the cat to that particular garden or yard and they will soon go elsewhere. A quick squirt with the hose a few times works wonders!

*IT IS AGAINST PA STATE LAW TRAP CATS OR WILDLIFE AND RELOCATE ELSEWHERE.
