How many times has this happened to you:
You wake up in the morning hung over and stagger to the bedroom closet after a brief shower, dress yourself, and leave for work. After an eight-hour work day (not counting the commute and lunch break), you return home, open your bedroom closet door, and this spills out at your feet:
Trapping a cat in a closet (or oven, or dishwasher, or washing machine, or safe) is more common than a Kardashian. These curious and stealth creatures (cats not Kardashians) can rush through an open door faster than a poor person at Walmart on Black Friday. If you’re not alert, your pesky feline can become trapped inside to eventually fight off the boredom by puking in your shoes, peeing its name on the walls, and/or enhancing your wardrobe with the addition of splotchy patches of its loose fur as if it’s a contestant on Project Runway.
So how can you prevent accidentally imprisoning your feline companion in solitary confinement? The Startle Station, of course.
The Startle Station is a simple device that utilizes magnetic sensors for activation. After setting up your Startle Station in the enclosure of your choice, you can turn the dial setting to select one of four sound deterrents: angry dog, vacuum cleaner, running bath water, or jackhammer.
When the door opens, the peel-and-stick magnetic sensor separates from the metal plate attached to the opposite door. The Bark Box then activates, scaring away your mischievous feline so that it may live another day.
