Because my wife is acutely sensitive to mosquito bites, I've
agreed to commit significant space in our yard to plants said to
be disagreeable to mosquitoes. I've focused on pennyroyal
(mentha pulegium). However, we have a cat, so I want to run this
idea by the cat folks as well as the gardeners. Any comments?

I never had a cat problem, but a neighbor used to place a trail of citrus
peels around the garden. She said it worked. Makes sense. Anytime I'd be
eating orange or grapefruit, my cat wouldn't come near me.

I recently stopped wearing a citrus-based perfume ("Pure" by Alfred Sung)
and my cat stopped having asthma attacks. I know the two things are related,
because little else has changed. Now whether it is the citrus base or
perfume of any kind, I cannot say. I surely didn't wear much, and didn't
wear it every day.
