Vinegar saves the day. Maybe.

February 6, 2013


Remember the water gun to keep the cats off the counters and what an amazing failure that was? Well, it was. Wally gets up on the counter all the time. I am too lazy to do more than yell at him and squirt him if the water gun is nearby, but Lloyd will chase him down and smack his tiny little kitty butt.

But I think I have the solution. The acidy, eye-stinging-fumes, vinegary solution. It just took a little splash in a bowl in the sink.

If Ralph is any indication, this is going to end up with him liking pickles.

He didn’t get up on the stinky counter today, that’s for sure.

(Then Lauren sits down to upload photos into the post. Then she looks up and…..)

Ha! Scratch the gloating. He’s in the sink now.

    I dont’ know anything about cats….but I do know my dog can’t stand the smell of nail polish. Or the polish remover. Of course these smells may cause brain damage.

    I tried those sticky strips. They worked as long as I left them out, but I often got stuck in them myself.

    Is he playing with the vinegar-water or drinking it?

    Looks like he is drinking. Somewhere I read they love fresh water. Squirt him with the vinegar. Worth a try. It shouldn’t hurt him.
