With all the rain we've had lately, the garden is saturated and at least temporarily the neighborhood cats have stopped using the garden as their litter box. They've found another way to annoy me to death.
All my pathways are covered in a very thick layer of straw. Love that stuff! It keeps the weeds away, you can walk around in the garden after a rain without getting your shoes dirty, it's cheap and easily replaced. However, the layer of straw has now become the cat's litter box. They do their business, cover it up, I can't see it, I step in it, I get really angry. Thank God I am a fanatic about indoor shoes and outdoor shoes.
So, is their any product, any way to treat the straw, to deter the cats? I seem to remember seeing something advertized somewhere, but you never know if these things work or not.
