Have some vegetable seedlings waiting to be planted . But have an issue with the cats as they think itís their larger kitty litter haven ! So not sure what to do . I had removed all evidence and put bay leaves everywhere .. that helps a little . Iíll have to start again . But realise that the task at hand is bigger . Maybe Iíll have to cover it up with something ( large netting and tubing to do a square frame !) from Bunnings . Any ideas .

Is this helpful K Atie? 
ĎAs a general rule, cats are sensitive when it comes to smells, but there are a few scents they hate that might just surprise you. They can't stand citrus and as much as you might love the smell of fresh herbs, cats hate rosemary and thyme. Banana and mustard are a big no-no too, as well as lavender and eucalyptus.í

Otherwise your idea of covering the area might be the only way around it. Good luck.
