I keep finding my neighbor's cat hanging out in my garden. Do I need to worry that it might start eating my fruits and veggies? I know this is an odd question, but I don't want to go to my neighbors and make an issue out of it unless my garden is at risk of being eaten by their cat.

That's a good question. I think we have had cats in our backyard before and it didn't look like anything was eaten. Cats jump so well I'm not sure how you would even go about keeping them out.

That's what I was thinking .... it's hard to keep them out. I'm glad to hear you don't remember having any problems with them. Thank you!!

I don't think the cats are there to eat anything, I think they think it's one giant litter box. My parents have the same problem with neighbor cats.

Lilly has a sand box we found we need to keep covered because cats were using that as a liter box. Yuck!
