I fill litter boxes with water and put in places where I don't want my cats to
use the floor for the toilet.It is said that cats don't like the feel of
aluminum too.So, maybe a dollar shower curtain ,the aluminum material,and the
smell of citrus,will keep them off your couch.Cathy

I went with an outoor love seat and 2 chairs with removable cushions. I have a
glider already. If someone comes over I'll get the cushions out of the spare
bedroom and put them on the patio furniture. lol.
I think you could mix the cat attract. Maybe start out with it straight, and if
it works, start mixing regular back in.... I had one cat years ago that cat
attract worke for.
I also know people use the small kiddy wading pools for litter boxes....I've
never tried that, but when it got bad in the past, I just put litter boxes in
every room they used. I sat them on the sofas, on a chest at the bottom of my
bed, etc... I'm down to 5 cats, but I still have to separate food and water
dishes in all different rooms.... I always have more food bowls than there are
cats. You might increase the number of litter boxes and spread them out. The
cats do like to corner and pounce on unsuspecting victims eating or in the
God bless you and all who rescue. Believe it or not, I've had more dog problems
recently. I haven't even moved the patio furniture from the basement where it
was delivered up to the living room. My old sofas are in various stages of
being taken apart since I can't give them to Goodwill! I've been 'handicapping'
the back deck stairs with lights and astro turf to prevent falls from a couple
of elderly dogs....
Happy New Year!
