Hey there, I see you have some screen work around your plants, and that can help to keep them and any other critters back from the bulk of the plant . Otherwise apple cider vinegar and water helps, either spray around the area of your pots. Some essential oils are good at keeping the cats away like citronella, peppermint, lavender and other citrus types, and they can be substituted for the vinagar.
Happy growing.

Hi @MarvinDMZ, I'd recommend to use a custom mix of essential oils, in a recycled electrical pesticide outlet or with the help of a mister/atomizer. Plus you can spray this mix around/onto your plant's containers. Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Lime, and Lemongrass can be used to repel cats. One of my friend working in the perfume industry was able to get me all of these for free, but you can also find them online or in your local nature store for a few dollars. Keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Cats do not like citrus. More precisely, their flavor. To your cat lost any interest in the indoor plant, sprinkle the pot and ground in it with a spray with the smell of lemon, orange or put in a pot pieces of orange or lemon peel.
 Pepper against cats. You can buy special sprays based on red pepper, but never spray it on a cat, it's enough to sprinkle the soil in a pot.
There is a special spray "Bitter apple", which for a long time will beat your animals desire to eat what is not allowed.
Foil and plastic protect the houseplants. From the foil you can make special mini-obstacles in the way of cats to pots with flowers. The rustling of the foil can scare away the animal, well, if it's from fearful ones.

Got same problem with my dogs.. I let them eat some leaves.. As long as it's not sugar leaves, or all the leaves.. It's a kind of help for defoliation ! Hahaha

That is the best Question. but sorry i dont know. My way to keep away the cats(they love it to shit under my plants) are my dogs. you can buy some stinking bushes cats dont like i dont know in english in germany its called "verpiss dich pflanze". Ok cats are very sensitive for odors. they dont like strong smells. pepper, coffemeal. garlic, onions. you can buy electric gadgest with an ultrasound they dont like to hear, and chemically you cqn buy a substance that smells very bad for cats. just goggle you will find something. happy growing

This is the best question ever ! Why not use chicken wire to make a fence around your girls . Keep the area clean : maybe a cat "sprayed" close to the area which is why the cat is coming back to "see" and "check"., so hose down the area to try to get rid of the smell. Some people believe some sorts of smells keep cats away like lemon and lavender, so if you want to you can plant some lemon thyme or lavender close by (but i don't think this helps much!) BIG UP !
