      Good idea, thanks. I just went to the store today and found an herbal remedy
      of thyme oil, pepermint oil and white pepper. It is in an inorganic
      material that you spread around. It wears off too.I really think marking my
      territory is a marvelous idea. That is what animals do. :)

      Hm... I wonder if the medieval custom of country commoners 'retiring
      to a bowshot from the house' to relieve themselves helped keep wild
      animals out of the front and back gardens?
