So I spent all this time making this pretty backyard growbox for Natalie's Valentine's day present, and we went outside yesterday to water the flowers... and we found a very unpleasant surprise.
The neighborhood strays have decided that my growbox works better as a litter box! There were piles of cat scat all over our patio! My next day off work might have to be spent on a stake out of our patio with a pellet gun and pepper spray. I have no other ideas on how to keep the cats out of our backyard, other than to put the pidgeon strips (spikes to keep birds off ledges of buildings) all over the top of the fence in our backyard, but that seems like a lot of work to keep our private property from being the feline dumping grounds.
