Plants are now taking up more space since they have moved to larger pots

Nibbled plants: Cat is prime suspect

I have repotted my vegetable plants into larger pots and now have 125 plants that are taking over the family room. Looks like I will have more than enough plants, however it appears that the plants are being nibbled on. A couple of the pepper plants are now stems only.

I noticed this today when I put the plants outside for a few hours of sun. I am suspecting my cat.

I saw her sniffing the plants last night and I think she liked what she smelled. I am going to have to find a way to protect the plants from her or 125 plants might not be enough after all.
