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.

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.

I got this product about 8 months ago. I use it so that my cats can not get out the dog door. I love it. It gives a nice warning so that they know to step back. It has put my mind as ease knowing my dog can get out to go potty but my cats won't get out. We live n a very busy street.

We needed a way to keep the cat from going out the dog door because of coyotes in the area. This system has worked wonderfully. It keeps our cat safe, but still allows the dog to go out when he needs to.

We wanted to keep the cat from going outside through the "doggy door" so we put the collar on him and put the transmitter beside the doggy door. He never went near the door again. After a week, we took the collar off of him and he has never tried to get out again.

Instead of worrying about an actual barrier we might trip over, we used the Petsafe Indoor Cat Barrier. It has been a great solution to keep our cats out of the rooms we wanted to keep clean. With Radio Fence, why worry about making a trip to the store? It was easy to have our pet supply needs delivered to our door!

I have used this with two of my cats to keep them out of my living room. There is no more scratching the sofa and peeing to mark their spots. I now have a third cat and am purchasing another collar for her. I purchased two of the barriers to ensure the entire living room area was guarded.
