Can I place this strip at the top of my stairs to prevent my dog from going downstairs? What if the width of my stair case is narrower than the strip? Is it adjustable?

What happens when a 250lbs man steps on it, like in a doorway?
Answer by ChewyMar 15, 2021
If any pet or person were to step on the mat with bare feet, the ScatMat will activate its static correction. If it's possible that someone could come into contact with the mat by accident, it would be best to place it in a spot where they can easily avoid stepping on it. Keep in mind, however, that the static correction itself would not be harmful, but would certainly be surprising.

What's the difference between the original and generation 2? Is there a medium size generation 2?
Answer by ChewyMar 27, 2021
The difference between the original and the generation 2 mats is that the transmitter now comes with an LCD display screen and soft rubber buttons. The display screen shows correction type, static level, battery status, and activation counter. There are still 3 strength settings of correction. The second generation also has closer wires in the mat that works more consistently. At this time, there is no medium size offered for the second generation mat.

My dog rubs against the sofa and actually moves the sofa. If I drape this over the side of the sofa will his rubbing activate the correction?
Answer by ChewyNov 10, 2021
A pet rubbing against the ScatMat will not trigger the correction. In the mat, there are two wires woven into the material. When a pet steps on the mat and touch the two wires, they complete a circuit, and this is what causes the correction. The pet’s hairless pads are what allow them to feel the correction; the pet rubbing their fur-covered body against the mat won’t trigger the mat.

Stopped working after couple of months

Yes it's working while it last. But all the other reviews are true. I found the cat not afraid of it after about 3 months and believed that's how long it lasts. Now I have had it for 6 months and just did a fully clean up and check and verified that yep it stopped working. Therefore I'm here to leave the 1 star. Besides, even when it works it may not be the best way to stop your cat. If you just want to set a barrier, cats are usually clever enough to jump through it.

This is a great product. I had one years ago and it did what I wanted, however, it had a cord and had to be plugged in to an electric outlet. This is much better since it is battery operated. I can place it anywhere I need it. The mat works great. My cats have not been able to open my sliding door since I started using the mat. They have quickly learned not to walk on it. Now they leave the door alone. Great product.

Great product

This is amazing, cats stayed away from plants as intended. However they did get smarter with avoiding the Matt, but did quit messing with plants so win

Well, I can't say I'm happy ...

So, I needed to replace my old scat mat (which I loved .. it worked very well for many years). And considering the $$, it was a big deal for me. Now, it's been several MONTHS (note: not years), and this "new" one is not working at all. Well, I take that back, the "unit" makes noise and says it's working, however it is not zapping anything or anyone. Not even a fly, which my old one would do. Besides that, having to remove the unit every time you need to replace the battery is a hassle, awkward, and sometimes literally a pain if you accidentally hit the side-mounted button that turns it on while trying to re-install the unit on the mat. Which is almost inevitable. Additionally, I had ordered a previous "new design" but received the wrong size. Tried to use it in a different, larger area, and after an even shorter time, the wire started detaching itself from the mat. So, money wasted on that one, too. I am so very disappointed in this "new design" I want to give it one star, I just can't make myself do that because it *did* work and deter for a limited time. Just not my $$'s-worth. Wish they'd change it all back.

poor design

The old version was much better. I turn these on and within 5 minutes it will count 30 to 40 times. I’ll be standing right there nothing is on it and it will just keep detecting. All 3 of them that I have does that. I still have one of the older ones and it works flawlessly. Big waste of money. The photo is after 5 minutes no cat was on it and it is clean

Not working, again

Sometimes this mat shocks and sometimes it only beeps. Not worth the money.

Works, but broke fast

This item worked well but I bought two for two different doors that the cats kept clawing at. Both of them broke within months. The wire that runs through it separated from the mat on both. I even made sure to move it out of the way when it wasn't on so that it wouldn't get walked on so I don't understand why it broke so quickly. Because of how much it costs I can't justify buying two every few months.

These saved my sofa from the beast! He ruined the first $1500 sofa with his fine cat hair coat! I miss my old sofa! These did the job and now he sleeps on his very expensive bed, he never touched. It’s a win win for both of us. Only took one zap! It got my son worse than the monster! Would definitely purchase again, but hopefully I don’t need them!
