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.

Have been using the Petsafe Indoor Cat Barrier for 2 weeks now and it works exactly how I hoped it would. It's easy to set up and use. It only took our cat about 2 days to get used to the new collar and stop fidgeting with it. He tested the limits of it once and got his correction, and now when it beeps he turns the other way. The low setting of correction works just fine for him. We use it to keep him from going out the dog door. This was recommended to me by a friend who uses it for her 3 cats, and it works great for her also.

After moving into a new home, our cat had "issues" going on the carpet in the front room of our home. After a year of stumbling through methods of trying to deter her from doing it, I found the indoor cat fence in a general google search. This is the solution to all of our problems. We believe she received a "correction" just once and now, will not even enter the room. She uses her litterbox non=stop now and appears overall, more at ease just knowing her options are now strictly a litterbox. This is the best product for improper elimination issues with a cat! We have now replaced the carpet in the room now that we know a solution has finally been discovered!

My 4 indoor cats pretty much destroyed my old house so when I moved to a brand new one I needed to control where they could go while giving them freedom to move around in allowable areas. I also needed to keep them away from a door to outside since my heavily wooded area would be dangerous to them should they sneak out. The cats adjusted to the collars in a day, I was surprised at just how fast they caught on and am still amazed at how well it works.

Good to keep animals in a designated area. I am using 3 units to allow a larger roam area for my cat.

I use this to keep my obese cat from eating my dog's food. It worked wonderfully for keeping him out of the dog food.

New kitten that continued attempts to get outdoors through the dog door where there are dogs, foxes, and coyotes. This product is a lifesaver, the cat now stays away from the dog door.

Very useful. We just about gave up on our cat who loves to jump over the fence. This product sure curtailed that.

"I've tried all types of cat containment systems to keep cats off of my furniture and out of rooms. None of them have worked until I bought this product.
The cat fence collars are easy to attach to your pet and they are self-releasing, if your cat gets stuck, for the cat's safety. The collars are compatible with the PetSafe dog fence systems, so your outdoor fence system can coexist with the indoor system.
Adjusting the wireless system transmitters and correctly placing the transmitters is somewhat challenging, especially if you have a house with complex architecture. However, once you've adjusted everything, they work great. Adjusting the strength of the wireless signal is done with a wheel knob on the front of the transmitter.
To adjust my system, I set the trasmitter level, then held the collar with my hand until it started beeping in the desired area. Remember, don't touch the electrodes while you're doing this!
Be prepared for a few ""escapes"" while training the cat. If an escape does happen, you should increase the shock level on the collar. Frankly, I'd probably start higher than the ""3"" level at which they ship from the factory. Once the cats are trained, they will not stay too long in an area if their collar is giving the warning beep. At that point, you can adjust the collars down in their shock level.
The cats hated me, in the beginning, but they have gotten a lot more freedom in the long run with this containment system. I can now let them roam outdoors without being worried they will jump my mechanical fences. We have lots of foxes in the area and a cat outside of my 7' high cinder block fence makes a tasty meal for a fox."

This fence solved an expensive and life threatening situation with fighting among my cats. For an odd reason one of my adult cats began violently attacking another, very timid adult after another kitten was introduced. The "fence" gives my timid cat a safe room to retreat to, and the aggressive cat thinks this timid cat has new found "strength". I can't be more happier with the product!!!

"I had a problem with my cats chewing wires. I was so afraid that one day I would come home to electrocuted cats. I read up on the problem and tried several different advised methods, none of which worked. My cats apparently were more stubborn then the cayenne pepper, ""stay away"" sprays, etc...
Then I found these collars. At first, my cats were not happy with the situation. To my surprise though, they learned extremely fast. Within days I found that they learned to stay away from the areas I placed the transmitters, avoiding the shocks that the collars induced. I have moved twice since I purchased these collars, placing them of course in my new homes, and now, my cats are so well trained that regardless of where they are, when they hear the beeping, they stop dead in their tracks. Now I don't have to worry about them chewing wires, destroying my XMas tree, or climbing into the underside of my reclining chair.
This is the best product to keep your cats safe.
Note: The only drawback to the product is how quickly the batteries can drain, ""especially"" when you are first training the cats. The more they activate the collar or cause it to beep, the quicker the battery drains. Be sure to keep extra batteries on hand, and remember to check the collars for low battery power. They blink red when the batteries are low. On average, my batteries last around 2 to 3 months now that my cats are trained."
