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.

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."

The effective range on my coller was about 6 to 8 feet. It was advertized to be around a 10 feet. It needs to have a little longer effective range.

I placed on a chair next to the dog door to keep my house cats from going outside. It has been fantastic. My cats no longer go near the door but can have use of the rest of the family room. It would be ideal if the unit could be made to extend from an outlet in the wall without a cord so I wouldn't have to worry about the dogs moving the chair or knocking it over.

It has a good range to keep the problem cat off of kitchen counters. We haven't had to set it very high to keep him out of the kitchen space. He pays attention to the warning signal. Wish there was a way to make the collar less heavy around his neck-it would be a problem for a smaller cat.

This device emits a circle radius barrier.. so that needs to be considered when you purchase it. I use it to keep my cat inside my office, but since the room is 10x12 I had to put the transmitter outside the office door so that the cat has enough room to walk around inside the office. works well and my cat was 10 weeks old when he first used it.. he learned very fast...

Product easy to use and much more reliable than a physical fence. Our cat jumps over three foot fence with no problem. The detector on the collar is a bit bulky but the cat seems to live with it ok. Definitely recommends this to anyone who wants to restrict access to a cat.

Our 9 year old cat had developed the nasty habit of peeing on our carpet upstairs. We tried almost everything including physical barriers, and nothing worked. This has been wondeful! The transmitter sits on our computer desk upstairs and the range is such that it engages about halfway up our stairs. Our cat has tested it twice and that's all it took. We check the collar periodically to make sure it isn't chaffing, and so far so good. We've had it for 3-4 months and the battery has just now run out of juice. That's shorter than I'd like, but I can handle replacing batteries 4 times a year if it will keep my carpet clean. The receiver is a little bulky for my small 8 lb cat, but even with her small stature, she doesn't seem to mind. All in all, I have been very pleased!

I use Radio Fence to keep my cat off the kitchen counters and out of my kitchen. Now I don't have cat prints on the counter and unwanted cat hair either. Its fence radius is about 10 to 12 feet turned on high. So that is enough to keep kitty away.

Can't tell you how much I love this product. When I introduced a new kitten into our home, an adult cat became aggressive and began injuring another of my adult cats who is very timid. My vet encouraged me to try the radio fence. What a difference. My timid cat has a room where he can retreat, and my aggressive cat thinks the timid cat has new found strength. I am so thankful for this product. Without it, I was going to have to try to place the aggressive cat, which is no easy task, emotionally or otherwise. It was definitely an excellent buy, worth every penny.
