How to deter cats with CATWatch

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.

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.

  • Pair with the mains adaptor for best volume strength and 'set and forget' convenience.

We would recommend powering this product with the CATwatch cat deterrent mains adaptor, available to purchase together (CATwatch cat deterrent with mains adapter) with a £3 saving, or separately (CATwatch cat deterrent mains adapter). The mains adapter is a more environmentally friendly option, and better value for money for long term use.

Alternatively, this product takes 1 x Duracell 9V alkaline battery (battery not included).

If using batteries

  • Always use Duracell 9V batteries (MN1604)
  • Do not use out of date or rechargeable batteries.
  • Use only Duracell alkaline batteries; the use of other batteries will invalidate the warranty.

Hasn’t worked
My unit has been in place now for just under 4weeks and I’ve still got a steady stream of 3-4 cats entering an area at night where we try to feed our visiting hedgehogs, but the cats are getting their first!

I used a brand new Duracell battery, which has now exhausted itself, so if the batteries only last 3-4 weeks, this is going to get expensive if rechargeable batteries are not suitable?

Watching our Hunter Wildlife camera, we can see the infrared light on the unit come on as the cat/s come into view, and calmly sit less than a meter away from the [scarer] eating the food we put out!

I’m going to give it another 3 weeks with another new battery, if nothing changes, then unfortunately it will be sent back.

RSPB response

Thank you for your feedback. Batteries should last 2-3 months, this may vary depending on the cat traffic as the units are activated by the movement of body heat. Please contact us if you have any more issues.

Superb, good quality and repairable!!!
I’ve got 2 cat deterrents. The first we bought over 25 years ago ….it got mishandled by builders who accidentally broke it about 13 years ago. That’s how I got a second one and in purchasing that I found they … the makers (Concept Research), did repairs. However, I thought I’d dispensed with the ‘broken’ one but I found it a few weeks ago in the shed. So I sent it off never thinking this 25 year old gadget could be repaired as it looked in a very bad state. However, the makers of this glorious and very effective gadget is now repaired and all it’s lost bits replaced and the repair fully completed. I’m so impressed that a deterrent aged at least 25 years old, that had suffered an accident with the builders, left in the shed for the past 10 years is now fully functional and deterring the neighbor ing cats from
My garden. I’m incredibly impressed by concept research and their repair skills and not adding more plastic to landfill n saving money. Alongside the fact that I find this the only cat deterrent that has ever worked in my garden. Thank you Concept Reseach for a brilliant service.
