Invisible Fences and Cats

Just out of curiousity, does anybody use an invisible or radio fence for their cats - inside or outside? I would like to hear anybody's experiences.

I know they exist but I would never use one on my cats! Dogs yes! Cats Heck No!

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

I wonder if this is something we could use for our oldest. He likes to sunbathe outside during the day and I don't want him wandering.

The only experience with it is the cat who lives at my vet. She wears an invisible fence collar in the hospital due to the food room. She would eat holes in the expensive prescription food bags. We have one of those indoor units that we put in the food room and it works wonders for her. She doesn't even go near the room anymore.

That is my only experience with it!

Thanks just curious. I have always seen the ads for them, but never heard of anybody actually using them. I am thinking it might save some owners from getting rid of a cat if there are rooms they don't want them in, or furniture they don't want destroyed.
