    Cat Collar did NOT work for our cats, June 21, 2008

    We bought the receiver collar with great expectations but neither of our cats could tolerate it even at the lowest setting. They freaked out and darted off. I feared they would run out of the yard with the collar on, it was stressful and I felt horrible doing that to them. One of our cats attacked me as I was trying to get the collar off because he was so stressed (and the collars are not that easy to remove). They became freaked out about going outside at all and these are not skiddish cats. I concluded that these devices are not good for cats (although some people have claimed success) I think they work better with a dog’s mentality, not a cats sensitivity. Ultimately, we returned the collars and built a cat enclosure. They seem purrrfectly content.

    What a fantastic way to keep your cat or cats safe.

    I installed the petsafe in ground fencing two years ago and successfully trained one large twelve year old stubborn, car chaising dog, a very cooperative medium sized six month old pup and a six month old cat. The cat collar works with the same buried wire as the dog, so you could have as many pets in your containment area as you like. All you have to do is follow the manufacturers instructions doing exactly as they say.

    Some of the negative reviews crack me up. Typical modern day attitude, blame everything on somebody else. Common sense will do much more than any instruction manual. Petsmart can’t control the fact that an animal is an animal, which is why it is YOUR responsibility to properly train your animal, and not turn them loose till they are fully trained and under control. For the first couple days I took our cat past all the flags and scolded him if he tried to go near them (without the collar). I had to be very careful and keep a leash on him at first, because he would freak out and run blindly in any direction(including up my leg with sharp claws) when he got shocked. Only after he figured things out and knew that the beep would be followed by a shock, and promptly back away till the beep stopped, did I leave the collar on him without a leash. <–Reread the last sentence, because that makes the difference between a safe pet and a lost/dead one. Now he knows where his limits are, and sits on the edge while watching us work in the garden on the other side. The battery does seem a bit over priced, but no biggy. I’ve been very happy with the collar, it does exactly what it is supposed to do.
