I’m finally at the end of my gardening season. Harvesting is complete and garlic for next year has been planted. As I ready the rest of my beds for next season with weeding and composting, Finn is having a field day! Imagine his excitement at seeing pristine rows of dirt all fluffy and ready for his “deposits!”
Don’t get me wrong–I love Finn. I just don’t love the potential health problems his natural cat behaviors present for my garden. And, as I am in a ferocious problem-solving mode, I’ve decided to foil Finn once and for all!
At first, a simple thick straw mulch worked well enough. But not for long. So I moved on to this wire fencing I had laying around. I just unrolled it over the garden and, instant-presto, permanent cat deterent! Now Finn won’t even walk over my garden, never mind dig.
And we all lived happily ever after. Okay, at least I did… : )
