      Snowshoe we tried your vinegar anti counter surfing treatment.

      I read your post here about this and decided to test drive it. First, a small story.

      Lucy counter surfs. The other day I went to the store in our small town. Getting to the cash I discovered I didn't have my wallet, I knew it was at home. Went home and discovered Little Miss Lucy had had time to eat five bagels in a package. The last one was salvageable. Saturday I read your post about vinegar.

      We use vinegar as a cleaner. So I put some in a bowl and offered it to Lucy who turned away without even drinking.

      We use vinegar in a sprayer. I ran errands today so before leaving I sprayed the countertops then left a carrot plus an open bag of corn chips within easy reach before leaving to run errands. Came home and nothing touched. We might be on to something.

      Thank you!
      Andrew, Faye, Achilles, Fitzi, and Lucy

      Oh I am just now reading this! I think I am going to have to do something like this with Diggity. Look where I found the little bugger this weekend!

      Glad it seemed to work for Lucy. Though I suggest not deliberately tempting, that's not fair, in my books.
