Cats can be real pests digging in flower pots, as can squirrels, chipmunks, and even toads. Here are some things to try: Keep the cat indoors; cover the soil surface with gravel, large mulch chunks, thorny branch trimmings, or chicken wire; or use a repellent spray such as the commercial formulations or a homemade garlic spray. There are also motion-activated water sprinklers available.
