Product DescriptionKeep cats out of your garden with the CatStop!
The CatStop detects animal intruders and emits a high decibel alarm which startles them away. The CatStop keeps cats out of your flower gardens, yard or anywhere you don't want them to be.
It's easy to use. Place the unit facing the area you want to protect. The built-in motion sensor detects the animal entering the area and emits a piercing, high decibel alarm. It startles the cat and frightens it away. Since the sound is ultrasonic you and your neighbors cannot hear it. It operates for up to nine months on one standard 9 volt battery. [Battery life estimate is based upon 4900 activations spread over 245 days at an average of 20 per day.
The CatStop is an effective cat deterrent because:
- A powerful burst of ultrasonic sound startles the cat.
- The cat equates the location with the unpleasant occurrence.
- The cat avoids the location in the future.
The CatStop requires one alkaline 9-volt battery (not included) and only takes moments to assemble.

Q: Does the CatStop work on other animals?
A: The CatStop has been specifically designed to the hearing range of cats. It has not been designed to deter other animals such as raccoons, deer, birds, rats, etc. However the Scarecrow works on a variety of animals.
Q: Which product works better for deterring cats; the Scarecrow or CatStop? A: While both products are excellent products for deterring cats, the Cat Stop can be used places where the Scarecrow is not ideal (anywhere that spraying water would be unacceptable or when a water source is not easily available). For instance, the Cat Stop is a perfect solution for keeping cats out of carports and garden beds near public walkways. The Scarecrow has a larger sensing range and is an excellent device for keeping cats off lawns, and away from ponds and gardens.
Q: How do I return a CatStop if it doesn't meet my expectations?
