Pepper in Yard to Keep Cats Away?

I've recently read online that you can keep unwanted cats out of your yard by sprinking pepper about. Has anyone heard of this before? The life of our neighbourhood's resident tom cat has been threatened by new neighbours (they were rooting their dog on to attack tom, but when tom beat the dog's butt, they got upset and told everyone they were going to call animal contol to come and put him down!) I was just wondering if I might let them know that they might try this natural solution. That is, if it even works!

Thanks, Emily. That was about the most disgusting thing I've read on this forum.

I hope that if someone knows about the effectiveness of urine, someone would know about the effectiveness of pepper!

I'm not sure about the entire yard, but I know people who have had luck keeping cats out of flower beds by throwing citrus rinds around. Orange, lemon, ect....

There is also a plant that cats avoid. Don't recall the name, but it was mentioned here in a thread not too long ago.

So are you saying the human pee didn't work? Or that you didn't try it?

You think I'm actually going to admit to something like that?

Just for that, you're going to have to listen to my story!! The next night I had a dream. In my dream I was in my back yard next to my deck early in the morning before the sun came up, and I was, er, um, applying some liquid cat deterrent. As I was doing that, a UPS delivery man showed up and came around the back of the house to have me sign for a package and caught me in the act. Right about that time I woke up and discovered my bladder was full.



This is a true story!!
