Cat in the Silk Flowers!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a silk flower arrangement on my dining room table, and of course, my cat loves to assault it when I am not home. There are no doors in the dining room so keeping the cat out is not an option. Any ideas about aversion techniques to keep my cat from destroying my decor?

Thanks for your help.

If the cat is just eating it, use a bitter spray found at pet stores. If it is a case if playing and knocking it over you can either put double sided tape on the table (they dont like sticky stuff) and use it for ahwile. The other option is to move the flowers somewhere the cat can't get to them.

We have the same problem with floral arrangements and Sandie is right; move them to where they can't get to them when you are not at home or don't have any. I don't know what the fascination is with artificial flowers, whether they are silk or plastic, but the cats have a field day with them. If you have a squirt gun (and free time) you could squirt them every time they approached the flowers. Squirting is a great aversion training method; however, time and interior decorating don't always lend themselves to this training method. Good luck!
