How can I stop stupid felines from chewing on my ivy? I’ve tried hanging mouse traps from the leaves but that only protected some of the plant. Then I tried pouring carbolic acid over the plant, but that did more dammage than good to the plant. Also it made holes in the table. I’m thinking the next route that I’m going to take is to plant miniature explosives in the dirt around the edge of the pot. Is that what you’d do? I’ve also been exploring storing the cats in containment cells when they’re not in use. They don’t seem to mind, so I think I’ll stick with that unless you can come up with a better solution.
