Strange Question?
Posted by jj from ID, 6 on 2001-03-29 19:16:36

Hi all-

I'm wondering how to get my cats to use my garden as a litter box (I know, that's opposite of what people usually want!) I have two young cats who moved in as kittens last fall, and they just started going outside this spring. They're addicted to their litter box, and I'd like them to understand that they can pee outside once in a while. Any suggestions on how to make a corner or two of my flower beds attractive to them? My two adult cats have no problem with the indoor/outdoor system, but this knowledge doesn't seem to be spreading through the ranks!

Thanks
jj

    jj,
    Since most people complain that cats get into their newly prepared bads, I'd guess that turning the soil and making it nice and soft might do the trick.
