[Comments] (13) Anticatnip: There are stray cats that wander the neighborhood, and they like to sleep on the patio and in the garden. Sumana dislikes these cats; they creep her out. Is there an anticatnip I could plant that would let me externalize the cost of stray cats by getting them to sleep on other peoples' patios?

You could put catnip on all other patios.

Or just throw catnip seeds surreptitiously over the fence and hope they germinate.

They will just eat the catnip and come back and sleep on the patio. Best to trap them and take them to the SPCA. Maybe the SPCA has a trap you can borrow.

I think Sumana should adopt one.

Maybe you can trap them in a /bin.

Develop stereoisomers of catnip in your basement laboratory? Or maybe just hold some catnip up to a mirror, then reach through and grab it!

No! Wait! Have your catnip grow a goatee!

Everyone has missed the obvious solution: get a dog.
