The British are known for taking pride in their gardens so I thought it was about time I helped you brits find the best ultrasonic cat repellent in the UK. Unfortunately some of the cat repellents featured on are only available in the US, so all the devices in our UK Cat Repellent Section are guaranteed available in the UK, and I’ll be including a link to Amazon where you can check them out (USA visitors please check out our reviews of US cat repellents)

The first (and most popular) ultrasonic cat repellent we took a look at which is available in the UK is the PestBye Battery Operated Ultrasonic Cat Repeller

Brits get a bit of a bargain here because the PestBye is good value for money when compared to the kind of prices cat repellers are sold for in the USA. This one has an 80 degree arc motion sensor that will cover a small garden (ie around 7 metres). If you garden is much bigger than this, you might think about buying 2 or 3 of these. It runs on 4AA batteries and is of course waterproof. If you buy rechargeable batteries they will last well over a year.

As you can see from the images above there are a couple of options for placing this cat repeller which is handy. You can have it up and running quickly by just planting it in the ground, or if you have more time on your hands you can wall mount it. You might find wall mounting gives you slightly more range and less chance of the sensor becoming obscured.

You can also see that this device has a frequency setting, to allow small adjustments in the ultrasonic tone, so you can find the best setting for ridding your garden of pesky cats. Use the following as a guide…

Cats – Between 3 – 5 Dogs – Between 3 – 4 Foxes – Between 3 – 6

I am however going to cut this particular review short, because Pestbye have another cat repellent that is superior, without a price hike. So, head over to our review of the Pestbye Solar Powered Cat Repellent!

Here’s some customer feedback on the PestBye

topbloke from BestBuy
We Had our doubts if this cat repeller would do the job for us, but we had to try something to stop the neighbour’s cat from coming into our garden, and leaving its spray and mess in our garden. Additionally, after making our garden nice, it was annoying to find out fresh soil being dug up by this cat. We gave this cat repeller a shot and it seemed to work right away, which to be honest surprised us. Very pleased!

Update :- We have been using this for a year now and is still working great. We use rechargeable batteries and have only had to recharge twice in well over a year. For those who find it doesn’t work, perhaps it isn’t positioned correctly or is set at incorrectly as ours definitely works. We were so pleased we have purchased another one to place in a different corner of the garden that was hidden by our small wall.

I have used PestBye Battery operated Cat Repeller for over 1 year now, so summer and winter. Initially I had my doubts, but I am glad I stuck with it as it really works. My advice to those who have doubts or issues – set it up as follows : 2-4 count the dots on the left and range to 20ft and also point it in the right direction.

The repeller definitely works. I got rid of a very annoying regular visiting cat after only 1 week!






  1. Bought my first 2 pest bye cat repellers from Amazon today after installing the batteries ! No instructions for setting up, found this helpful page on my iPad,
    My concern was no sound, am confused since I am not sure if sound to the human ear should be heard???

    • Hi Eric

      Good question, I should really address this so people understand :o)

      The ultrasonic sound is pitched to be an annoyance to cats – but it is not within the normal hearing range of humans. HAving said that, I can actually hear mine going off if everything else is quiet and I listen real hard – it is a very high pitched whine. Hope that helps!

  2. Is it ok to place within four metres of a neighbours window where cats exit the house?

    • Haha, so long as it is placed on your own property – you are good to go!

  3. I’m considering buying this product but would like to know if there is some kind of low-battery indicator. Otherwise, as it’s inaudible to humans, how do you know when the batteries need replacing?

    • Hi Cathy

      There is no battery indicator on this cat deterrent however you can hear a very faint audible click when it is activated. The best way to check therefore is to pass you hand in front of the sensor and listen for the click.
