The Ssscat! System sounds off an alarm and emits an odorless spray when cats get too close. Other repellents such as double-sided tape and bitter apple spray are also effective cat deterrents. According to The Nest, natural repellents such as nontoxic essential oils can be placed in off-limit areas. Spraying cats with water from a water bottle is another effective way to keep cats out of certain areas.
