    Anyone who likes to feed or watch birds in their garden is bound to be disrupted if stray cats keep wandering in and causing feathery havoc. There are some home remedies you can try to keep a cat away. This article will help you with some ideas on how to keep a cat out of your garden.

    Keep Cats Away – Simple Home Hints

  • Rub lots of petroleum jelly on the poles of your bird feeders. The petroleum will make the base slippery enough that cats will not want to climb up them.

  • Cats hate citrus smells and will stay away from them so try to make your garden as full of citrus smells as possible. Use some citrus oil combined with water and spray it over all your bird tables and walls.

  • Stop stray cats from sitting on your garden fence and watching the birds. If you buy some wire and place it about 5 or 6 inches on top of the fence it will be like walking on a tightrope. The cat will soon realise it cannot balance on your fence anymore and go to stalk birds in someone else’s garden.

  • Look at where the cats are entering your garden to keep the cat away take some used CDs and hang them at these entrances. The shimmering reflections are very confusing to cats and this keeps them away quite successfully.

  • To keep a cat out of a garden then make sure you plant rue. Rue can look very pretty in a garden and grows so well in any garden with different plants. Cats hate the scent of rue, so plant as much of it as you want; the more rue the less cats!
