Thanks for advice on scratching box! My hubby has made a larger version out of old pallets in garden! He loves them!!:001_smile: We now have another problem we could do with your thoughts on!!! These 2 Ugly fat tomcats have been coming through Bubba's cat flap and eatting all his food and drinking his water, well making there selfs at home in the utility room and spraying everywhere before they leave! Poor bubba doesn't do alot to scare them away, he has done it a couple of times and hubby got one of them last night with a hose gave the black one a nice shower! Does anyone know how we can stop these fugly tomcats terrozing my poor bubba and leave his food and water for him to drink. And leave our utility room just smelling of the cat food!
