Plastic Forks Are The Secret To Keep Cats Out Of Your Houseplants
Cats are great house pets, but they are prone to mischief, especially around houseplants. One way to keep your cats out of your plants is to use plastic forks.
Cats do not like to step on unpleasant surfaces. Placing the handle of plastic forks in the soil with the tines facing upward will deter cats from stepping in the soil.
For each houseplant, place the forks in the soil every few inches around the entire surface of the pot, particularly in areas where you may already have noticed your cat digging.
This hack is a great option because it's quick, simple, and affordable. Sticky paper or spike mats can become expensive, especially if you have many houseplants to protect.
