    Cats and foxes

    I've found Get Off My Garden Scatter Crystals (Vapet) very effective, i'd reccomend getting a few bottles and putting fresh crystals down every few weeks.

    Ink on Wooden Nightstand

    I'm no expert :wink: but you could try leaving a cloth soaked in a mild cleaner on the stain, weight it down with something heavy and leave for 24 hours, repeat if neccessary. If it doesn't get rid of the ink, it may at least fade a bit.
