Re: Cats, so...


Thanks, Cyndi. I just wrapped a chicken wire cage around it. The wire is 24 inches high, and so perfectly covers the damaged area. Don't want anything to happen to that palm; it's one of my pride-and-joys.

Temporary wrap of chicken wire or sticky paper on the palm, and a nice
tempting alternative like logs nearby to re-train the habit.
Pet stores sell spray cans of stuff that is supposed to be a deterrent, but
I don't know how well that works. Citrus odors are also supposed to be a
deterrent.

could lay out there in the vicinity?

what do I use to keep a cat from sharpening its claws on the trunk
of my bottle palm? Must be the neighbor's cat, which is here a lot;
Beans has a preference for one of Ms Fatma's Oriental rugs. Anyway,
it's doing a fair job of shredding the boot of one of the fronds--so
it's happened more than once [unless it's a Florida panther--and
wouldn't that be neat!].
