So far, my garden has been cat free and the wildlife, my plants, solar lights and ornaments have been safe from the damage these cats do.
As a matter of comparison, I also purchased fence spikes from another competitor which were far inferior to these Catcus spikes.
Firstly, these were delivered over a week before the others, even though I ordered both sets at the same time.
Secondly, these have more holes for screws, having a row of holes in the centre (which the other spikes do not), saving me the job of drilling more holes.
Next, the four spikes on each end are slightly smaller allowing me to fix in the first screw without damaging my hands on the spikes.
Next, these spikes come with a weatherproof warning notice to fix to my fence. The other spikes do not come with a warning notice - this has to be purchased separately.
Lastly, these are easier to cut and are a better colour (a darker brown) so look better.
The minimal difference in price was worth it.
A picture says a thousand words, so have a look at this one.
I did notice one cat climbing up towards my wall, putting one paw gingerly up towards the area that has had the spikes fitted and then quickly deciding that perhaps it wasn't such a good idea. Another local moggy just looked disgusted and stalked off.
I think that the secret to successful use of these spikes is in the positioning. If you can, fit them in an area where the animal is going to have to jump up, then they will work very effectively. However, if you fit them somewhere where the animal may simply walk, albeit carefully, in, on and around them, then they will not be so effective.
The strips each have three rows of off-set spikes. They are fairly easy to fold, if you want to fit them around the top of a fence. Equally, they are fairly easy to split into 2 or 3 strips by the careful use of something like a Stanley Knife. The spikes are made of very solid and hard plastic and are considerably more robust than I thought they would be, which is good.
I am also using a PestBye Battery Operated Cat Repeller and that, with the spikes, has resulted in a cat-free or, more to the point, cat poo free back yard.
So - recommended, but a little bit of planning may be necessary in order to make the most effective use of them.
