Astar's craft - Getting rid of unwanted cats and dogs - 23 October

Ways to rid your property of unwanted cats and dogs&

1. Dog urinating on the lawn -

Simply dissolve one cup of baking soda in a couple of liters of water.  Mix in a watering can and then saturate urine spots every couple of days.

The baking soda deodorizes the area, preventing the offending dog from recognizing the spot.  The baking soda also helps to retain the colour in the lawn, thus stopping it going yellow.

2. To repel cats -

Dissolve 2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp mustard powder
1 tbsp cayenne powder
2 cups water

Fill a spray mister bottle with above, give it a good shake then spray around flower beds, vegetable garden and backyard.  Cats hate it!


3. mix and add to a spray mister bottle

2 tbsp Tabasco sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp washing liquid
1 cup water

Spray around boundary of property. This should stop cats doing their business at your place.

Tom cats spraying all over the place -

Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and hit all areas concerned. 

The vinegar will neutralize the smell of the cat urine and stop them marking their territory. 

Dogs getting into the rubbish -

Simply sprinkle around the rubbish bin, a good layering of black pepper - as soon as the dogs nose hits the pepper it'll be off to someone else's bin &.
