Are there colorful perennials that I can put in pots on my patio that the neighborhood cats will not use as a kitty litter or pee recepticle? I am in zone 8/9.

Molly,

Probably not. But you can cut sections of hardware cloth to fit inside the container on top of the soil. This will prevent them from being able to scratch in the dirt and may discourage them from turning your plants into a restroom! There are repellants that supposedly work pretty well. One such product is called Shake Away Domestic Cat Powder and is available online.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
