    My wife is a flower fanatic and has a cat or dog peeing on her flowers. And needless to say has killed a couple. I try and tell her that it is not a child plant another one then get slapped up beside the head. I cannot see spending 100 dollars on a life trap. I told her a .22 shell is less then a nickle and I get slapped again. So does anyone have a idea how to handle this issue. I really do not want to kill the animal since it is someones pet

    A hot wire around the area will break them of it. I've seen those keep animals out of a lot of places.

    LOL. Not really. It is just me being smart alecky. Repellents never seem to work. Do you have a dog? Usually if a male is marking there is another dog involved, yours or somebody else's. The best way (if he isn't bigger than you and meaner) is talk calmly and gently to that dogs owner. After that and it don't work have your wife go slap him a few.

    the rut is coming soon, if you catch the dog thats doing it, put some estrous scent on it. he'll learn.
