Are ultrasonic pest repeller devices safe for cats?

Yes, they are. The frequency of sound emitted by those devices is many magnitudes higher than a cat can hear. Please note, however, that studies of these devices's efficacy as pest repellers have revealed that they can't be relied on to do as they purport they can do. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
