Cats will be cats

@DownTheStreet yes they will. It's not his fault it's mine for putting off building it's greenhouse
DownTheStreet · 51-55, M
@MiraRoss the cat will forgive you :).
It can be saved, just put it in a safer place
They will grow again.

Depends, how much damage it did and how much time it stayed like that. There are always some chances of them regrown.
MiraRoss · 31-35, F
@ABCDEF7 a little root damage and most of the top as seen in picture I did I bit of digging to see if there was anything more but nah. Maybe 25 minutes like that I was bathing my kid so around that 25 minutes mark I came down to it

@MiraRoss If you had put that back properly in the soil after returning and made it moist with some water, chances are it will regrow.

Potatoes are pretty hardy and might still be ok as long as the rooting system is good
MiraRoss · 31-35, F
@Picklebobble2 yes the roots are crazy good
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
@MiraRoss Should be ok to repot then.
Although if you plan to plant directly into soil make sure the soil's not waterlogged.
MiraRoss · 31-35, F
@Picklebobble2 there not waterlogged I make sure of that only water once it's dry on top

Should be ok you really don't want the above ground parts to be that big ,it takes away from the potatoes growing underground

Place orange or lemon peels at the base. Smell will keep cats away.
MiraRoss · 31-35, F
@MrBrownstone I hear this alot truth is it doesn't work
Quimliqer · 70-79, M
Cover them with soil. Buy the cats a litter box!!
MiraRoss · 31-35, F
@Quimliqer there's two liter boxes in the house

I'm sure they'll be fine.
