    Thank you. We will of course visit a garden centre here in the dark and dangerous north where they still stock triffids, woad and mistletoe.

    You also used to be able to buy lion poop from the zoo, it was dried out and had no smell except to cats. They stayed away, not sure if you can still buy it...

    Apparently you can

    The thing is cats are creatures of habit and if you deter them they will go somewhere else. I imagine this is happening at night when all is quiet. The other option which would probably suit your needs is you can spend a bit more on a detector linked to a tap which will spray water for a few seconds as the animal approaches. With children around that would be a good option. The granules or lion poo could go on the soil on your beds.

    Oh if only the owner of said cats could be given the considerable bills for all this paraphernalia. We will add the plants and the lion stuff. After that it’s the spring loaded trebuchets.

    Out right bullying, @gennepher .

    Can't see them doing that with our very own Rock (@dunelm ) or Arnie (@johnpol )
    Can you..?

    Report I say.

    That's how the Weinstein's get away with so much, it's just a lone voice, until others come forwards.

    May not help you, but a quiet word now about being professional, may save others the trauma.

    Good luck either way..

    Even if the owners wanted to there would be nothing they could other than locking the cats in at night. The animal is doing what nature intended and I hope you can find a solution that is safe for the animal.

    Hope all goes well tomorrow. How are you feeling about it? I was just wondering if your slightly higher than expected fbg after a safe dinner, might be due to anxiety, conscious or unconscious, about it the injection.

    It would probably work, but then it might deter children and grandchildren too!

    No, I can’t see. It maybe because I use the app and it sometimes behaves differently to the website.

    Having a higher bg reading this morning I thought it would be a sensible idea to check it again pre morning coffee. It’s even
    a little higher. I was hoping for a consoling lower reading.
    I think it must be stress and back pain, plus the stupid foot that I bashed on a chair leg twice in the last weeks (you know where the little toe goes one side of the leg and the rest of the foot the other!)
    Apart from a few strawberries extra, my food yesterday was sensible. Really fed up. I shan’t test mid day again- that way madness lies!
    Edit: I’ve done it again. Wrapped little toe around the table leg. It’s excruciating, worse than the last times. How stupid!

    Warning this posting will contain topics of an offensive nature to those of a sensitive nature and no tolerance of the absurd, please, please read no further, in fact do the sensible thing and block my postings on your news feed.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen but not politicians who seem to be running scared. Come the next election........

    A 8.4 kept out of the meter this morning shouting " you know eating cheese late in the evening is bad for your blood sugars " the little blighter legged it into the garden before I could get at it.

    Well folks yesterday was be nice to a neighbour day. I was nice to my neighbour. I never spoke to him all day.
    I achieved my tasks yesterday. A rare occurrence. Today I am unsupervised and shortly will be drinking koffy with my pals chaos and mayhem hehehehe.

    Good luck @dunelm with your quest to rid your garden of cats fouling your property. I at the moment don't appear to have that problem, but I would appreciate advice on how to rid my garden of tyrannosaurs's lurking in Mrs J's shrubbery.
    Good luck to those on hospital visits and have a good day folks.
    Don't forget tomorrow is nation bin day irrespective of colour and type.

    I have become embroiled in a discussion in another place. One poster suggested that cats don't like marigolds, which led someone else to say that any brand of rubber gloves would do the trick. People being what they are, this led to a discussion about all pets being wary of rubber gloves, particularly when seen in the company of an enema or rectal thermometer..... but I will stop there, in case this is too unsettling for some. We are the owners of two pampered and much loved mogs before you all start discharging torrents of fear and loathing at me
