Also, before we begin, it is worth noting that at the time of publication, this cat repeller is on sale for a huge discount at Amazon making it one of the most inexpensive solutions for cat problems available anywhere.

For the best effect I installed the Garden Creations repeller above ground level. The effect was obvious as the pesky cats have now moved on to another perch on the other side of the garden! I am getting another 2 of these devices to scare them away for good!

We actually bought this not for cats, but for dogs as my neighbours dogs were driving us crazy with their barking, this product made those dogs move away though! Result!

I think I must have received a faulty product as mine stopped working after 6 weeks, reaching out to manufacturer now for a replacement….


  1. Hello! I am looking into purchasing this item, but have a question about it. I live in an apartment complex, so I wouldn’t be able to place it around my car. Will this work if I put it on my dashboard inside of my car if it’s right behind the windshield? There are a bunch of feral cats that are scratching up the black paint on my brand new car and I need a solution! Thank you!

  2. I haven’t received it yet. I ordered it from Amazon. I have a cat and dog. I’m hoping I can just set it for insects. If I can’t, I’ll return it.
