Cat netting

It took them a while to find it but one of the neighbourhood cats has used the raised bed to go to the loo! I found a roll of plastic covered mesh at the end of the garden and it was more or less the right size to cover the veg bed!




I’m having a similar problem with a neighbour’s cat – I think I might give your solution a try.

It’s not very secure, but a cat’s got to be really desperate to get under it! I’ve kept it high enough not to flaten my veg by tying it to canes round the edges and in the middle. It’s only really a temporary fixture while the plants get more established. I’ve taken a pic for you – not very glamorous but it seems to be working so far!

Looks good! It may be enough of an annoyance to discourage the cat from adding your raised bed as a regular stop on the trek around the neighbourhood.

Yes, it must have been someone else’s cat, couldn’t possibly have been my own! ;-)
