Stray Cats

Asked November 6, 2019, 4:43 PM EST

There are 3 stray cats use on yard as their litter box. My yard is 60% made up of mulch. Any suggestions on how to stop this? Appreciate any advise you can give me. Sincerely Joyce Benge 106 Ross Ave, Bellevue,Ky 859-468-9183

Good morning Joyce,

Thanks for reaching out to Extension. We've had this same issue in a few of our community gardens. We've used chicken wire fencing under the mulch to prevent the cat from scratching. There are also a few other methods mentioned in this publication:

Keep me posted if you have any further questions.
