|What is Cat Scram?
CatScram makes countertops, plants, furniture, balconies and entire rooms off-limits to cats - even when no one is home or you are sound asleep. it utilizes a passive infrared motion detector to sense when a cat nears a protected area. The unit then emits a series of strong pulsating ultrasonic waves for 4 seconds to repel the cat, training it to stay away. The ultrasonic waves are heard by cats and inaudible by humans.
They find the sound so uncomfortable that areas guarded by CatScram are soon avoided altogether. Cat Scram protects property and it protects pets by keeping them away from dangerous areas such as poisonous plants, machinery and stovetops.
SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION
CatScram uses a 9-volt, alkaline battery (not included) or a 9-volt, AC/DC adapter which is sold separately. Adapter must be center positive (+). If the unit is to be used in one place, using the adapter (rather than buying batteries) can be more economical.
Turn power on, and position the unit in the area requiring protection. Place the unit at about 3 foot level above the floor. This will give a detection distance of 15 feet in an area sweeping 90 degrees. For stove top or table top protection, placement is best at the back of the counter.
|CatScram LED Indicators
Warm-Up Indicator: When switched on, CatScram warms up for 40 seconds. During this time, the LED flashes once per 1.4 seconds for the first 32 seconds and increases to 4 flashes per 1.4 seconds during the last 8 seconds.
Triggering Indicator: After it is warmed up, CatScram goes to work. The unit emits a series of pulsating ultrasonic waves for 4 seconds each time movement is detected and the LED flashes 4 time simultaneously.
Low Battery Indicator: During the 40-second, warm-up period, if "Low Battery" occurs, the battery voltage is 7 volts or less. The LED will continue 8 flashes and the unit will shut down. Replace the battery immediately.
|Because Cats Have A
Mind Of Their Own!
We love our feline friends dearly, yet they can often be a worrisome annoyance. As we soon learn, our lounging, sleepy, cat-napping friends are nocturnal. When we are trying to sleep, they decide it is their time to explore. This seems to be their time to play with their toys, get on the kitchen counter, dig in our house plants (or eat them) and in general be a royal pain.
If we are sound sleepers, we often find the evidence in the morning. Attempts have been made in the past to control this activity by devices that frighten or shock our restless friends. A detection device with a loud siren as an alarm may be fine for outside use or in the daytime, but I personally do not want a smoke alarm sounding siren waking me at 3am telling me that my cat is on the kitchen counter or digging in the plant.

|Helpful Hints for CatScram
Plant Protection: If the plant to be protected is in a large planter, a CatScram can be placed in the planter itself and tilted to give the desired coverage. To protect smaller plants, merely position a unit for normal flat surface coverage.
Counter and Stove Top Protection: Place a unit on the rear of the counter or stove top. This will give the desired coverage to the surface while allowing the cat to be on the kitchen floor undetected.
Furniture Protection: To protect upholstered chair or sofa place a unit on the seat, against the back cushion. This will give the desired protection while allowing the cat to pass on the floor undetected.
Outside Protection: The Cat Scram is not waterproof, however it can be used outside in a protected area such as an enclosed entry way. Outside cats are known to visit houses of inside cats and leave their scent. they also use the flowerbed or planters as a litter box. Place a unit in the entry way facing the opening and you will soon deter their visits.
Dog Owners / Dog Doors: It is possible your dog might notice the sound produced by the Cat Scram, but it will not deter his movement. You can now let your dog go in and out while you are gone without fear that your cat will get out. Place a unit near the pet door and the dog can pass freely but the cat will stay safely inside.
