Repel the Rabbit by Bad Smell
Traditionally homeowners have resorted to repellents of some sort to discourage rabbits from eating plants in their yards. The list of smell related home remedy substances is lengthy. It includes mothballs, creosote oil, cat fur clippings, fox urine or tiger manure from the local zoo. There is no reliable evidence that any of these things are effective, but you can always find an advocate down the road. See the end of this file for available products.

Repel the Rabbit With A Pet Dog or Cat
In many cases the territorial markings that your male cat sprays around your property (and his presence) may be as good a deterrent as there is.
A dog or cat roaming the yard often discourages rabbits from coming onto the property. Male cats and dogs mark their territories with urine which assaults the rabbits’ keen sense of smell. It establishes an invisible barrier that is often, though not always, quite effective.
