Make sure your cat behaves as if you were standing right there. The PetSafe Wireless Indoor Cat Barrier is safe, easy to set up and very effective.
Just place the small, disk-shaped transmitter (about the size of a Frisbee) near the area you want to protect. Then adjust the range from as little as 2 feet to up to 10 feet.
When your pet gets near the signal a warning beep sounds on the receiver/collar. If he continues to approach the protected area, a mild correction is given. You can increase or decrease the correction to meet your cat's training needs.
You can protect multiple areas and cats with additional transmitters or collars. The receiver/collar is light and durable and specifically designed for cats with an elastic safety strip that will stretch in those instances where your cat is exploring in a tight place.

We bought this for our indoor cat, to keep him out of my bedroom as I am somewhat allergic to cats. My cat hissed and bolted as soon as I placed this around his neck. He hid until it was time to come out for food in the morning. But he got used to the collar after a couple of days, and after a few days, he has learned to stop at my bedroom door. He even stops when the collar is off.
Our cat has long fur. We didn't want to trim him, so tried the collar on medium. He doesn't seem to feel the shock, but the mere fact that the collar makes noise when he crosses the invisible boundary, seems enough to prompt him to keep his distance.
Having to take the collar on and off frequently is a real downside, especially if your cat is like ours and a bit fiesty. But it has worked.
A suggestion for the manufacturer would be to try and create a collar that isn't as big. This one is rather large.

I ordered the PetSafe cat barrier and received it within one week. I read the direction (not a complicated product) and set it up. It worked perfect for 1 ½ days and stopped working.
Radio Fence sent a new complete unit immediately. When I received it I tried to set it up but could not get this unit to work at all so I called PetSafe directly for trouble shooting and they said it sounded like the transmitters were not working properly (the collar only worked if you held it 4 feet above the transmitter.
I received a transmitter direct from PetSafe this time and it does the same thing as the other 2. I called PetSafe back and while on the phone we tried several things with all 3 transmitters and both collars in different areas of my house.
None of them work ad it appears to be the transmitters since the collars have green lights indicated everything is working properly, they will receive a single if held over top the transmitters, and the test light shows they are working as well. So the transmitters are not transmitting the signal properly.

After what seemed to be a territory contest between my male and female cat and ruined furniture and peeing incidents, I bought 2 units of the fence and 2 collars and they no longer enter the rooms they were wreaking havoc on. LOVE IT.

Bought this product and an additional collar to keep my 2 cats out of my daughter's nursery. The cats refused to stay out of her room at night - she kept waking up terrified because they would jump the gate, climb into her bed, and lick her in her sleep. Because we heat out home using pellet stoves, closing the nursery door is not an option in cold weather. I was skeptical that this product would solve my problem, but it did. Immediately. After one shock from the collars, the cats have not been back in that room. I had to adjust the settings a bit so that the cats didn't get shocked in the room directly below, but the product has worked brilliantly.

The instructions aren't very clear but I figured it out. At first I had the collar set on the lowest setting but my cat has long hair and it didn't have an effect on him. So I set the collar on a higher level and it works great. He is a stubborn cat and tries it every now and then but once the warning sound goes off he goes in the other direction. would definitely recommend it.

After sending out for reupholstery -- for a second time -- my good living room sofa that my two cats diligently clawed right down to the wood frame (they really seem to love the camel back); and after having had to discard my high-end dining room rug after it was ruined by a cat urine turf war, I really was at a loss as to how to live with cats and have nice, un-shredded, non-stinky furnishings. I had tried, with unimpressive results, sticky paws tape (which works, but -- in my experience -- only when it is actually on the furniture, and who wants to live with tape all over their things?); claw covers (they don't all fall off at the same time and are kind of hard to apply); an electric mat (just as "shocking" to me as it was to them); and automatic spray cans (again, spraying me as much as they did the cats). Desperate, I thought I would give the Indoor Cat Barrier system a try, so purchased one for under the newly reupholstered sofa and one for under the dining room table, where I was planning to put a new rug.
I was determined to make this work, so I diligently followed the training instructions that come with the collars. I actually put the cats on leads and taught them to "run away" when they heard the collars beep (you'll need to read the directions fairly carefully). I spent several days working on it. Still, I was skeptical.
Happily, I was wrong. The Indoor Cat Barrier has so far worked like a charm!!! The cats learned their boundaries very quickly, and they know exactly where they cannot go. (Incidentally, I did not put down the new rug until after they were fully trained.) And, once trained, they have not experienced the static corrections, because they simply avoid the off-limits areas.
So far, they have not attempted their negative behavior elsewhere in the house. They also do not seem overly annoyed by the collars (you need to train them to wear the collars so that they can get used to them). One of the cats rubs her collar against things, though, so it is getting a little "fuzzy." In order to prevent irritation, I do take the collars off at night when they sleep in a separate room.
I would highly recommend this system. It can save your home and make life with kitties a lot less stressful.

Bought device for the sons family after having ownership of my granddaughters cat for 7 months, I knew she wasn't going to behave in the constraints required back home - Mainly, she was always on the counters, dinning room table. Keeps her safely away from both. Would highlyrecommend this product.

We purchased 2 radio fences with collars for our cats who were trying to sneak outside from our backdoor. The collars worked so good and the cats did not "freak out" when they were shocked. After trying so many things this was the first item that worked!!

Like others I wanted to keep my cat from going out the dog door. I started with just the noise for a day and then put it on the lowest level. After two corrections he learned. He still tests it but only until he hears the noise and then goes the other way.

I purchased this system because we could not keep our new kitten from going out the dog's door. Our dog is old and simply has to be able to "do her business" as she needs to. Kitty can't go outside because we literally have coyotes and foxes that hunt in the open space on the other side of our fence - a distance of less than ten feet. I was a little apprehensive of using shock tactics to keep my feline inside. When I first opened the packaging, I tried it on my own fingers at a medium setting and felt what I considered to be a good jolt. I tried it on the kitty, and she got outside very quickly - three times! She was completely unfazed by the shock. I then turned the collar to its highest setting. It was amazing! The cat entered the "danger zone," and zoomed back up the stairs, tail bushed out, to relative safety. Since that one big zap, the cat moves very carefully in the area of the basement where the dog's door is located. She has learned where the perimeter is all on her own. She very quickly learned to associate the beeping sound as a warning that she would soon be zapped. As soon as she hears the alert, she rapidly backs away to a safe area.
Given the choices, this one was the best one to make. What I also appreciate is that she has only had to be zapped one time before she decided that she didn't want to experience it again and again.
