There’s something pretty special about sharing the garden with your favourite cat. If you Google ‘Cats’ and ‘Garden’ you will be met with a barrage of how to keep cats OUT of your garden. So let’s instead look at ways in which we can attract our furry friends to ‘Garden With Us’ ……..

Here are ten favourite garden spots for Sherman, Suki and friends….
Last but not least is the amazing Catmint. Nepeta ‘Walkers Low’ is my favourite variety.
It has an intense blue flower which can last for months over the summer and cats go wild for it. The decision then is how
