Default cat remedy

No sorry I don't have a remedy yet. Found a tip in one of this weekend's newspaper liftouts about the plant SOLENOSTEMON CANIS - will deter cats from your garden.

I found out that Solenostemon is a Coleus - and Canis is "dog", but couldn't find the species with both names together.

There was a cat in my backyard the other day and it detours through my coleuses to get to its yard. Hopefully it won't do that again, but I am not sure how effective coleuses are.

Maybe SOLENOSTEMON CANIS is a different plant altogether.

Anyone had any successes with deterring cats?

Thanks for any help
Katherine

g'day katherine,

have heard lots of suggestions as to which plants might deter cats
over the years but never much on how successfull they are my guess is
maybe not so?

i have my way of detering moggies but we won't go there, as i see an
animal that isn't in its owners full care (on their property) as a
ferel.

we have lots of discarded pet moggies around here (we are in the
suburbs) called ferels living in drains, so currently i mange to keep
them out of my gardens by using my pee around the garden, now how to
keep that ferel from sleeping on the bonnet of the car when the drains
are full of water???

In the same article/tip I was reading, it also mentioned that planting
CATNIP attracts cats, and advises that you ask the neighbour to plant that
one, to keep the cat there, and we plant the COLEUS. Actually when I
chased the cat out of the back yard he went through my coleuses just the
same :-)

g'day stuart,

they are also supposed to be licenesed hear as well, so the stray dog
situation has all but vanished, just cat lovers are not so
responsible, and unfortunately for the hapless gardener who doesn't
want or need cats in his domain once you trap them and release them to
the pound and they get returned to their owners you will never get
them into a trap again. and i have found thorugh experience
irrisponsibale moggie owners soon go looking for their errant ferel
when it doesn't show at brekky time or to their plaintive calls.

1. Good quality mince & mix in mashed snail pellets
2. Good mince so they enjoy their last meal
3. Not the pet safe pellets
4. Make sure no other animal can get it
5. Put out at night to cure mating
