Stop Fluffy from scratching at the door
Your cat wants to play outside and has taken to scratching at the front door to let you know, but you worry it’s too cold out there for her. To put an end to her scratching and protect your door, pour a few drops of orange oil ($7 for 4 oz., health-food stores) or furniture polish that contains orange oil onto a clean washcloth and rub into the area where your kitty scratches. Cats detest the scent of citrus, so your cutie will avoid the door at all costs. Bonus: Guests will be treated to the pleasing aroma of fresh oranges as they enter your home.
