Scraminal Pet Behavior Controller
I don't know about any other pet owners out there but I find myself having to decorate my house according to what the cat will and won't destroy. This generally means no house plants, no fresh cut flowers (the worst offense in my mnd), no area rugs and no piles of clutter, ever. Luckily my cat has learned to leave the couches alone for some reason unknown to me, but I'll take it. I'm curious about the Scraminal Pet Behavior Controller because I hate having to resort to spraying the cat with a water gun or sticking ugly double sided tape on furniture. The Scraminal can create an invisible 3 feet wide barrier by emitting a series of short high-pitched beeps to train your pets to stay away from as far as 15 feet away. A heat and motion sensor will set the Scraminal off and reset itself for the next intrusion. It's true, sometimes pets adapt to these tricks that we put out (like my cat who ended up actually enjoying that squirt from the water gun), but from what I hear, the Scraminal is worth a try and it beats putting ugly tape, tin foil or gates all around.
