25 year truce

I have used Catwatch units for a quarter of a century to keep cats out of my car-port. I recently returned two units for repair/refurbishment, one could be repaired but the other was replaced at a discounted price. Over the time I've used Catwatch units I have found them to be 100% effective and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who tells me that they have a problem with the unwanted attention of neighbourhood cats. 'You get what you pay for' and whilst these may not be the cheapest they do exactly what it is claimed they will do: deter cats.

RSPB response: Thank you for your great review. We are pleased to hear how well CatWatch has worked for you over the years! Our supplier is very good when it comes to repairs and replacements for units! By Will-i-am, on 30 Nov 2017

At long last the solution

Like all animals and love birds more than cats, especially when neighbouring cats kill the birds we feed in our garden.
On the advice of a friend we bought Catwatch after trying all other methods, including other sonic products.
Catwatch has worked beautifully and best of all it does not harm the cats. By Bird Lover, on 5 Oct 2017

A very happy Catwatch user

I very much enjoy watching the birds in my garden but got to a point where I was considering not putting out food for them because of the problems I was having with the local cat population. About a year ago I acquired 3 Catwatch units which are placed at the ingress points of my garden. The cats have been deterred and the risk from them to the birds minimised. I continue to put out food for them and enjoying their presence knowing the are safe. Thanks Catwatch. By Richard W, on 22 Sep 2017

Product information

The only cat deterrent tested and approved by the RSPB!

CATWatch, the UK's leading cat deterrent manufactured in the UK, has successfully completed a two-year scientific trial conducted by the RSPB to determine its deterrent effect on cats in residential gardens. The results are published in the Applied Animal Behaviour Science Journal after peer review.

The research concluded that CATWatch reduces cat intrusions into gardens. The longer the unit is in place, the more effective it is.

CATWatch is weather resistant, cost-effective and approved by the RSPB. It also comes with a two-year warranty.

How does it work?

Push the Catwatch ultrasonic cat deterrent into the ground, and when the sensor detects movement it emits a high-pitched sound disliked by most cats (but inaudible to humans). The frequency emitted is unique to cats hearing range, so the Catwatch won't bother other garden wildlife, such as hedgehogs.
Some cats will see the device as a challenge initially, and it may take up to four weeks to put them off coming into your garden.

  • - Unit 14.5 cm tall (with 16.6 cm ground spike)
  • - Supplied with a comprehensive instruction booklet with diagrams
  • - Passive infra-red sensor detects body movement & heat
  • - Electronic micro-circuitry and computer controlled microchip activates signal as cat enters protected area & switches off as the animal leaves
  • - High quality speaker emits series of modulating ultrasound frequencies 20-24 kHz repellent to cats
  • - On/off switch plus red led light
  • - Positioning stake
  • - Secure all weather high impact casing
  • - Made in the UK
  • - 2 year manufacturer's warranty
  • - Requires mains 12-volt adaptor (available separately) or one 9-volt alkaline battery (not supplied)
Mains or battery-powered: requires either the 12-volt mains adaptor (available separately) or a high-quality 9-volt alkaline battery (not supplied).
Although the Catwatch ultrasonic cat deterrent does work with a high-quality 9V alkaline battery the manufacturers report a 30% increase in alarm noise when the unit is used with a mains adapter.

For maximum power and economy use mains adaptor kit. The mains adaptor is recommended if a lot of people or creatures pass by the unit because this may shorten battery life. (Average battery life - 2 -3 months - requires 1 x 9v high-quality alkaline battery).
Other advantages are: -
i. Maintains operation at peak efficiency as opposed to the declining power of batteries.
ii. The alarm is increased by 30%
iii. Long term economy - costs just a few pence per month to run.
iv. Completely safe - only the thin 30ft 12-volt bell wire runs outdoors to the unit.
Progressively reduces cat intrusions within your garden
Many people find cat-fouling a nuisance. This device is proven to reduce the presence of cats in gardens and the deterrent effect increases over time. Put simply, CATWatch actually trains cats to stay away from your garden. CATWatch does this by emitting a unique ultrasonic alarm, triggered by the cat's movement and body heat as soon as it enters the protected area.

Inaudible to humans
The series of CATWatch alarm frequencies are set above the human hearing range so you can enjoy your garden in complete peace and tranquillity.

Protects up to twice the area of other cat deterrents
One CATWatch unit will protect an area of up to 1,350 sq. ft. - up to twice the area of other makes. Furthermore, many other deterrents simply emit a random or permanent ultrasound signal regardless of whether a cat is present or not, resulting in the deterrent effect reducing over time. That's why many people who have tried other cat deterrents eventually choose CATWatch.

Works in all weather conditions
CATWatch is designed to run trouble free all year round and in all weather conditions from -30 C to +60 C. The low voltage computer controlled micro circuitry is completely sealed inside the unit, the only deterrent with this feature, so that in the unlikely event of water entering inside, it will still continue to function and be absolutely safe to touch.
