PetSafe Ssscat Pet Deterrent Training Aid
Not worth the money
I bought 2 of them. I opened the first one and the on/off switch was broken off. The second one after 2 days of use the on/off switch broke off of that one too. I called Petsafe because it says on the product paperwork not to return them to the store in which they were purchased. I am currently waiting for replacements and have to ship the broken ones back to Petsafe.It also took two of us to get the top part connected to the canister. Great concept, but needs work.

So far so good.
The good: the spray does indeed deter my cat from going past the unit, thus keeping her out of the kitchen. The can seems to be lasting a good while, as I've had it up and running for almost two weeks and it's still working.
The average: as expected from a smart cat, she knows very well that the strange object I put on the floor (and keep turning off and on so I can go into the kitchen myself) is what's spraying the air. So if I move it at all, she knows she can go into the kitchen unimpeded. While just having the can sitting there, even in the off position, can keep her away for a while, she does randomly test it to see if it's still working and then it feels like we're back to square one.
The bad: the sensor doesn't always seem to work, as I've walked past it myself after forgetting it was turned on with no results, then when I leave and walk past it a second time, it sprays me. It's also hard to tell when batteries need recharging. Still, for the price it's a pretty good deal and works well most of the time.

easy and effective
we use this product when out of town since one of our 3 cats gets "upset" when we leave. he now knows when"can" is set out to behave and not wet certain areas of house. we do eventually come home and are now pleasantly surprised when there are no messes to deal with.

It does tend to zap people a lot more than the cats. it's difficult to turn off w/o setting off the can. It is effective though and will keep using with high hopes.

We have ALOT of rescues..many more in our home then was ever planned!! I love this product!! I intend to get another. We already have a "scat mat", & that was bought out of desperation due to spraying & countertop walking...eeerrrr!! This product works, didn't last as long as I would have liked, but then again with our gang it had it's work cut out. I highly recommend it.

Very interesting product. I am having a lot of fun watching my cats ssst away from areas I do not want to have them. The product works, only one thing I do not like is that the bottle gets empty fast.

Effective, but hard to assemble
This works well and does scare my cat away for places that are bad for her. However, I had a terrible time getting the spray head attached to the can. I had to find a strong man to do it for me.

Very good at keeping the cat away. Sensitivity was the only issue
The sound made kept the cats away however, the adjustment for sensitivity varied. Sometimes too sensitive, othertimes not. Seemed to work with minimal light.
