How to protect indoor flowers from cats

Potted flowers are very attractive to pets, especially cats. The owners try to protect the flowers from the "curiosity" of the furry animals, but it does not always work.

OBOZ.UA has found effective life hacks that will help you cope with this without harming your pet and flowerpots. You do not need to buy special chemicals or make fences.

Citrus peels

Pets don't like the smell of citrus. Spread fruit peels in a pot of flowerpots and you will not only fill the room with a fresh scent, but also eliminate the problem. Cats perceive the scent of lemon, orange, or grapefruit as aggressive.

Change the peels every two days to keep the scent in the air.

Toothpicks

Stick toothpicks into the soil at a distance of about 1.5 centimeters so that the cat cannot put its paw down. Use this method to fill the entire surface of the pot, leaving no space. When the cat tries to climb into the pot, the sharp toothpicks will become an obstacle, and over time, the cat will forget about this habit.

Double-sided tape

Stick the tape on the pot in the form of a cross, stretching it from one side to the other, creating a lattice shape, and leave a place for the plant in the middle. When the cat tries to climb into the pot, its paws will stick to the tape, which will create discomfort and unpleasant sensations for it.

Small pebbles

Sprinkle the soil with small pebbles or decorative pebbles, this will also create an uncomfortable environment for the pet, and it will not approach indoor plants.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA published an ingenious New Year's life hack that will help protect the Christmas tree from the cat.
