Dealing with customers and dog shit

Recommended Posts

Nah, doesn't work, tried that. And chilli flakes. Carpet gripper along the top of the fence does work though.

What was that trend a few years ago, Lion shit from the zoo to spread on the areas where the cats cack.

 

Cat won’t crap there as a bigger cat has already been.

 

Or did I dream it?

Nope, you didn't dream it. It was a thing a few years back. Didn't work in my experience though. I've got a friend who is a zoo keeper. She used to work with the lions so brought me a bag of it once. It stank, (as you'd expect), but didn't seem to put off their nasty little cousins from destroying my garden.

Say a cat deposits 100g in your garden, 200 days a year. That's 20kg. Far more convenient to procure 20kg of equally or more odorous shit from an animal that lives six thousand miles away and then spread it on your garden yourself.

But why stop there? Spray the inside of your loft with exotic guano to deter native bats. Tether a bald eagle in your conifer hedge to ward off pigeons. Infest your wife's crotch with common fleas to displace bothersome pubic lice. Be the master of nature.

Ok.

 

I think I see the point you're making, and I agree. Most of our most pressing problems stem from seeking to be the master of nature.

 

The lion poo was from a zoo a few miles up the road, and it's not natural to keep six cats in a terrace house!

That , I seem to remember is for game keepers to spread in the cover strips to stop the deer browsing them down .
