Cats don't like lemon :)

Post  miinva on 9/5/2010, 12:35 am

I read that today and thought I'd share, since I remember reading that several people had trouble with cats in their gardens. I don't know if it will work for anything else, like squirrels or chipmunks, but I figured it was worth sharing Smile

Or bananas. Smile Every time I hold a banana up to Ed's nose, he makes the effort to sniff it, and then recoils in horror like I'm attempting to poison him.

Of course, this cat also likes to sniff Pepsi...

I'm not quite certain that cats don't like bananas!

When I was in grade school, we had a cat named Pixie (16 lbs.) He was a true feline omnivore. One food he found particularly enjoyable was green-tipped bananas! He also enjoyed korn kurls, fruit jello, marshmallows, and Heinz 57 kosher dill pickles.

One day, we couldn't find the rascal anywhere. Finally, I opened the refrigerator door; there was Pixie, shivering next to a bowl of fruit jello. He'd opened the fridge and gone after his favorite dessert.

Like people, I suppose cats' tastes vary--just as do our different approaches to SFG. :cat:
