Loved your article, what fun. I have only one cat and she so far, knock on wood, hasn't dug in any of the houseplants, I have mostly cacti, that may be the reason. LOL But she loves to curl up around the pots and snooze. Go figure!
Thanks for sharing :)
I am the "mother" of 8 cats & 1 dog who thinks she is the mother of those cats. I only have a few house plants & don't have a problem with digging. My problem is chewing or biting on the leaves. Any solutions? I don't think it's harmful,but it sure looks ugly!
I often sit for my daughter's four cats. I have one long haired daushaund - who is not afraid of cats and stands his ground - even when out numbered. The older cats are used to him and they now play with each other- the two younger ones want to fight him. So I have plants and anything else that go flying off in the blue yonder. But the suggestions for the older cats to stay out of my pots - works nicely! Do admit that the dog runs for his life when he sees one of my pots on the floor to let the cats take all the blame. That is the only time he is smart when it comes to the cats. Now for my daughter - she needs to de-claw the cats so my furniture and curtains will stay intact and the dog's nose isn't so scared - or she will need to find a new sitter for her cats. Old saying - three strikes and you're out...this has been the third out sitting for the cats at my house. I have been raised with cats and dogs and never had a lot of problems till she got her cats. Any ideas of why?? Strays in the neighborhood come to this house, but pretty much leave my plants alone - to be fed or get attention. Oh, yes - the dog leaves the cats alone most times or they will play tag - looks like the game of tag anyway. . . husband and dog play tag inside the house. Another idea - when a new stray comes around, I put out moth balls around my delicate plants and the cats will leave the area alone. After awhile I don't need to use the moth balls.
