Stop Cats From Using Your Sandbox As A Litter Box

When you were really young, I’m sure that at some point you played in a sandbox. However, did you ever dig up a cat’s buried treasure? Finding cat poop in your sandbox is just gross. If you don’t want your children to suffer the same fate, then you might check out this little device.

The Contech CatStop Cat Detterrent does exactly what you’d think it does; it deters cats. The gadget features a motion sensor that lets it know when to set off an ultrasonic alarm that will drive away felines. It’s supposed to be able to cover a 330 square foot area, which should take care of your sandbox. I suppose if you just really hate cats, you can stick a few of these in your yard for kicks. Then again $52 is a lot to pay just to get rid of a cat.

    Man, where was this thing last year when I needed it? We had a stray cat that would come around our house at night and it would use the area underneath and around our back deck as a toilet. The whole deck reeked of cat urine with that strong ammonia scent. We had to remove all of the mulch in the mulch beds and lay down all new fresh mulch. Finally, after months of this, we were finally able to catch the cat in our driveway and take it to animal control. Haven't had the problem since, but this thing might have come in handy.
