RE: lenten rose now rabbits now cats

The cats in my neighborhood are more tenacious than yours kitty.  I found
that rose canes (thorns and all) laid on top of the ground was effective
though.  The gardener however must pay attention to where they place their
hands when working in the garden however to they to stick them self!

It's my chubbiest cat, Shimmy, 18.5 pounds  (that's 8.4kg, Brian) that nails
the bunnies.  Being well fed has nothing to do with the fun of the chase.

A good way to protect your beds from being abused by neighborhood cats is to
use those green metal folding fences.  You lay them flat on the ground and
your plants will grow through them, but the cats don't like trying to work
around them.
