Default cat owners...

...I got some nice big houseplants last week, now my cat keeps jumping on them and kicking all the soil all over,

how do I stop this? what about those little balls / stones people have over the soil??

break their legs, it will stop them jumping.

Seriously, there is a product called 'keep off', should have it either at Paws & Claws in Mirdiff, or from Petland in Al Quoz.

We use a water pistol, whenever the cats look like going somewhere they shouldn't we shoot them. Appears to work.

Be careful though as a lot of house plants are toxic to cats, and deffo never allow lilies in the house.
