5 DIY Secrets to Fixing Common Pet Problems
From digging up the garden to missing the litter box, we’ve found the do-it-yourself solutions to your most common pet problems.
Problem: Your Cat Has Accidents Around the House
Solution: After cleaning up a cat “accident,” wipe the area with a cloth moistened with ammonia. The pungent odour will kill the smell of cat urine and will prevent the cat from returning to the same spot to relieve itself.
Problem: Your Cat Keeps Digging Up Plants in the Garden
Solution: Stockpile orange, grapefruit, and lemon rinds in the freezer over the winter. In the spring and summer, poke the rinds into the soil of flower and vegetable gardens, then cover them with a light dusting of soil.
Problem: Your Cat Jumps Onto All Your Furniture
Solution: Place strips of double-sided adhesive tape on tables and other surfaces that are off-limits to your cat. Cats hate the feel of the adhesive on their paws, and will soon learn to keep off.
