Cats are wonderful pets. They are very cute and sweet and very gentle too. I have many friends who have cats as their pets. Cats are bubbly and lively too.
Why are there so many different cat repellent recipes listed below? All cats are different and what works on one may not work on another. As an example, some of these were given to me by people who swore the recipe worked for them yet they did nothing to repel the cats visiting my garden.
So, if you try one of these and it has little effect simply try another. Before using any type of natural cat repellent you should first clean the area of any cat litter or spray. These include lavender, peppermint and orange.
Mix 1 part of any of the above oils to 3 parts water in a spray bottle and give it a good shake. For problem spots you can try soaking cotton wool balls in one of the oils and putting them in and around the area. Recipe 2 Another natural cat repellent recipe I found that proved reasonably successful but required a bit more work was as follows: Mix 2 tablespoons of Cinnamon, Rosemary and Lavender into a pint ml of boiling water and leave it overnight.
Next morning you will need to strain the liquid through a cheesecloth and then add half a cup of vinegar and a dozen drops of Tangerine essential oil. Place your cat repellent in a spray bottle and give it a good shake before use. Recipe 3 Squeeze a lemon into a litre of water, add 2 dozen drops of eucalyptus oil and give it a good shake.
Eucalyptus acts as a repellent to several animals including cats and they are supposed to find citrus off putting. Recipe 4 Certain dried herbs you can buy in the big supermarkets can also be effective as cat repellents. Sprinkle dried Rosemary or Lavender around your bedding plants or other problem areas for a quick and easy way to put the cats off using the area as its litter tray.
Recipe 5 Citronella oil is the home made cat repellent I had most success with. Although best known as a mosquito repellent cats find the Citronella odour very distasteful.
Mix 1 part Citronella oil to 4 parts water and spray liberally in the trouble spot.
Warnings Although I have tried to use only natural ingredients you should still try to avoid spraying directly onto your plants. I have come across several recipes that included boiling Cayenne or black pepper with other ingredients. Pepper can cause injury to a cat or other animals eyes and I would not recommend it.
Not only is it cruel but you could well end up with a hefty vet bill or worse, being prosecuted see cat laws.
Similarly, you will come across plenty of people advising the placement of moth balls in your garden to keep cats away. Moth balls are toxic and not only bad for your soil and plants, can cause all sorts of serious problems to most animals including us and can cause death to a cat.
