    5 parts flour

    Any citrus peel on top of the soil will repel cats. Things that keep them from digging such as pine cones, aluminum foil, screen, stones, etc will also keep them from going potty in your pots. ;)
    I agree about moth balls being toxic - I work for a man once that threw them out in a dropped ceiling to get rid of birds - he almost put my in the hospital.

    I don't have a problem with flower pots - thank goodness BUT the neighbor's cats (yes, there are several cats) seem to like my veggie garden. Not a nice thought. And ya know, I even walked over, real neighborly like and tried to make nice. The door was closed in my face. I was the good neighbor and just walked away. Why is it, that some folks can't take care of their animals AND don't give me that story about cats are like wild animals. Just take care of what belongs to you. Thanks to all for letting me vent!!!

    I have no suggestions, but do advise not getting a basenji or a comfortable pot (it also does no good to rely on the other dogs to alert anyone to what has occurred):

    there used to be flowers in this pot

    Black pepper will do the trick.... Only takes once and they find a new potty place.
