An Insincere Apology to Cat Owners Everywhere

So Jorge hates cats. This hatred goes all the way back to childhood, when the neighborhood street cats would tear open his family’s garbage bags and litter the remains outside their front gate.

In our current neighborhood, several of our neighbors have cats that they let roam free. We didn’t have a problem with this until they started pooping in our planter.

Tired of cleaning up cat poop (why does our life seem to center around animal feces?) and having a smelly front patio, Jorge came up with a Master Plan.

Chili powder.

Excited and with just a hint of crazy in his eyes, Jorge picked up a small bottle of chili powder at Walmart last night. It was time to put the Master Plan into effect.

He scattered a line of chili powder around all the edges of the planter so the cats would have no choice but to land in it if they wanted to poop in our dirt. I heard him mutter, “Espero que esos cabrones vengan HOY.” (“I hope those bastards come TONIGHT.”)

  1. A mixture of orange peels and coffee grounds works for me. Chili powder didn’t seem to last long enough to discourage the cats. They drove me crazy since the flower bed they liked was outside our usually open window.

  2. LOL…can’t wait to hear if this worked! I should really share about our cat experience when we purchased our lake house…lets just say that my husband will NEVER own [or like!] a cat again!!

  3. Ahaha, that’s AWESOME. I can deal with some cats, but most of them are little cabrones, for sure πŸ™‚ Hope you take some pics of the results πŸ™‚

    • Didn’t work in my cat’s case. He likes water and would try to drink it as he was getting sprayed. I also tried to upside mouse traps covered with newspapers on the kitchen counters to keep him off. That didn’t work either.

  4. Jorge sounds sexy when he talks! πŸ˜‰
    I live next to an effing cuh-razy cat lady who feeds 12 feral cats NEXT DOOR TO MY HOUSE. So me? I am doing a little happy dance reading this post.

  5. Oh my gosh! What happened? πŸ˜€ … Seriously, I’m living with my parents at the moment and my mum has started a new garden, growing our own fruits and veggies so we can all eat totally organic. Bu the stupid cats from the neighbourhood keep coming and using the vegeatable patches as a litter tray!!! Not only that but if one of our back doors are open, they’ll saunter right into the house and go for any food left out in the kitchen.

    Need to get rid of those little gits!
