Reviews of the Best Cat Repellents



Gardeners, cat owners, cat haters, they all have something in common – they want to control the movement of cats and to discover just what is a good cat repellent?. For gardeners, this means preventing cats from fouling in their garden. For cat owners, this usually means keeping cats out of some sections of the house, for example, the kitchen for hygiene reasons. For cat haters, they just want to keep cats away from everything!

In order to satisfy these three groups, there are two main types of cat repellent, indoor and outdoor.

Indoor repellents (sometimes called pet or cat trainers) come in two varieties – ultrasonic, or physical measures. You can find the best of these in the Indoor Cat Repellent table below. Any repellent listed in that table works, plain and simple, they will control and restrict the movement of cats indoors.

Outdoor cat repellents come in a large range, in fact you have a choice of 3 main types: ultrasonic, water spray, or powders. Ultrasonic are by far the most popular, simply because they are inexpensive, and they work for a long time. Water sprays can be equally as effective, but require a water supply, and are more expensive. Although powder cat repellents are the least effective and do not have the same staying power as an electronic device, they remain best sellers and are popular with gardeners looking for a quick inexpensive solution to cats that does not need batteries!

The Outdoor Cat Repellent table below lists the best, most effective outdoor cat repellents available, and as with the Indoor listing below, every one of the repellents listed in the table works, plain and simple!
