      12.0pt;font-family:Arial;”>I live on the edge of a national forest and we have a huge
      problem with mountain lions and coyotes, so we don’t have a problem with
      cats running around, all cats and small pets HAVE to be indoors if you want
      them to live. What I’ve found with my cat is that just plain water in a
      squirt gun does the trick, they hate getting wet (well most cats) and it
      surprises them.

      Melissa,

      I have had that same problem. Caused alot of
      trouble with our neighbors. I went to Petco and they have a spay for the
      outdoors.

      The only problem is you have to spay it everyday around your yard to
      keep the cat out. I can’t remember the name of it but if you ask them they will
      help.

      Also, I hadtwo empty spray bottles. One
      had ammonia and the other had colored dye. ( the cat was white).

      Every
      time the cat came in myyard, I sprayed him with the ammonia. When he came
      back the again, I spayed him with the dye. It all washed out of the cat but the
      owners had to keep washing him because he smelled and kept getting the wet dye
      on their stuff.

      Now before anyone says anything, I do have two
      female cats (they are fixed), 1 male dog and two fancy rats. I love animals but
      owners need to be responsible for their animals.

      Also, try bleach to help get the smell gone from your
      front door etc.

      We have a neighbor’s male
      cat spraying our flower beds. With it getting warm outside, the smell is
      getting really bad and it hits guest when they walk up the sidewalk and at the
      front door. I googled and found some suggestions…:

      “Citronella works best for cats as well as citrus
      scents such as orange or lemon (primarily towards cats), cayenne pepper, coffee
      grounds, pipe tobacco, lavender oil, lemon grass oil, citronella oil,
      peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, and mustard oil”

      12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:black;”>Has
      anyone had any luck with anything specific? When they say coffee grounds,
      would this be used from the coffee maker or new from the can? I
      don’t know how I would put oil in the weeds, just spray it on or pour it
      over the area?

      12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:black;”>Our
      flower bed is a large overgrown weed pit that I have not had time to get
      to. I don’t know the first thing about flowers so I am not sure
      what all the other suggestions are, but if it works, I can find it and learn
      how to plant it. It is really embarrassing to have people come up and hold
      their noses until we can let them in.

      12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:black;”>Thank
      you for your help.
