Anywhere you don't want the cats to be, put lemon wedges. Cats hate lemons. It works really well...

Absolutely!! We have had cats in our lives more than dogs actually
PS For those who don't want cats around I think they dislike mint smells too

I have had two to three cats for the past 20 years. Right now I have a two females, a solid Black Maine Coon and a Blue Point Siamese rescue. They are more my daughters' cats, the Maine Coon only interacts with me when the dogs are no where to be found which is very rare. The Siamese is Miss Personality. She is everywhere! She doesn't like MacKenzie but she LOVES Brady.

I had a heart cat too. He was a little Sealpoint Himilayan named Corduroy. He was the golden retriever of cats. The first morning I woke up after buying him as a kitten, he had squeezed himself between my arms in the middle of the night. It was true love from there on.

Marie, Brady, MacKenzie and Sailor

Thanks for the info about the lemon. We are going to the store tomorrow and I am going to pick some up and place wedges on the fence and around the yard. Honey does chase them when she sees them, but they keep coming back.

My mother's Maine Coon was amazing. He was like a little dog, haha. Unfortunately, I'm pretty allergic to cats so they're out for us. If not for the allergies I would probably have one!

Hello. We love cats. I have had cats since I was a small child. I only got my first dog in 2006 ....a papillon, so same size as my cats. We have three cats ...a silver tabby, a brown spotted Bengal & a snow leopard Bengal. And we now have a four month old GR puppy. The cats enjoy being around the dogs. So yes .....we love our cats very much. And we love our dogs very much.
