cat eating hydrangeas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't even know if I spelled it right, but you get the idea. I will soon be making some hydrangea wreaths and arrangements for my home. Beeba will think I am doing it just for his enjoyment. I know he will chew them to pieces. Any suggestions on what I can spray on them to deter him? I already have a scat spray but that is guarding my artificial fall arrangement. He is so weird! Thanks.

Do you have a room you can make off limits while working or while your supplies are out? If not, guard them and don't leave anything unattended.

Hang them out of reach. While there's sprays, such as bitter apple spray, to make things taste bad it won't do anything for a cat that decides to shred something with their claws.
I've found over the years that craft supplies are just too tempting to kitties. There's some sort of siren call about them that makes cats unable to keep their paws to themselves. I do a lot of bead work and if I so much as look away there will be a cat paw inching towards my beads. Nothing I do stops any of them for long, the more I tell them to go away the more they want my supplies.

All parts of hydrangeas are toxic to cats. If they ingest enough, it can cause respiratory problems and death. Lesser amounts will cause vomiting and diarrhea.

I don't know of anything you could spray on the wreaths to discourage the cat from chewing on them. Maybe, try Bitter Apple spray. It might discolor the wreaths though.
