I Want These Cats To Stop Pooping In My Stone Planters?
The first time I noticed cat pooping in my stone planters was when my daughter told me. “ Mommy there is poop in your planter.” I couldn't believe what I saw... This particular planter is close to the door entrance and once you walk up the stairs you'll smell the cat poop.
Getting rid of cat poop could be very annoying. I go through this every Spring/Summer.
I asked my neighbors if they have the same problem and they told me yes...
I really thought I was the only one with this problem.
One neighbor told me to sprinkle cayenne pepper in and around the planters which would scare the cats away. I tried that and the cats still poop in my planters, sometimes cover the poop with the dirt.
I threw out the new soil used to plant flowers, and left the planter empty with cardboard at the bottom. Now I'm not seeing any poop in the planter.
I plan to get more plants and put them inside of the planters without taking them out of the original pot where the cat love to poop. (This planter looks like a litter box to the cats...the oblong shape with stone design around the pot attracts the cats)
Here Are Some Google Tips To Try:
1. Try white vinegar spray around your pot, it also neutralizes the smell of the cat urine used to mark their territory.
2. Place pieces of aluminum foil around the pots.
3. Cats don't like lemon or lime. Try placing squeezed pieces of citrus on the soil.
4. Try mot balls or pecan mulch.
5. Try decorative pebbles. The cats like the dirt to cover up their mess and won't like the rocks.
Flat small stones will help.
6. Put wood skewers throughout the pots, sticking up about an inch. It shouldn't hurt the cats because they wouldn't want to step into it.
7. Stick a bunch of plastic forks around the edges of your pots, put the pointy sides up.
Here Is Another Tip...If You Don't Mind Spending Money:
