How to keep kittens off of garden plants?

How do I keeep my kitties from using the bathroom in my outdoor flowers?

If you mean how do you stop your cats from #going to the toilet around your plants in the garden well this is tricky.

There are two possible things you can try. firstly try to put gravel around the base of your plants so that it does not make this area of ground attractive for little paws to scrabble at.

Also you could try some of the cat powders you can buy fro your garden which is supposed to smell nasty to your cat and keep them away.

Try the gravel first though as this will also help to keep the weeds down around your plants too.

Cats like soft freshly dug earth so anything that makes it a little harder on their paws is a good deterrent.

You could also try and make an area of your garden a more attractive area for your cats by digging it over so that it is soft and easy to move and also you could try planting some catnip in the area so that your cats want to go there.
