PetSafe Ssscat Pet Deterrent Training Aid Refill
Best and Safest Way to Deter your Cat!
We have the most wonderful cat who decided she wanted into our bedroom at night. She wouldn't remain still and bothered us so we had to put her out of the room. Of course she wanted back in and would cry and hit the door. I searched everywhere for the right product to discourage her and found Ssscat Spray. It is the perfect product. After a couple of nights of getting sprayed by a very gentle and safe spray (kind of like the spray you use to clean your keyboards) she now stays away from the can whether it is turned on or not. Every once in a while we turn in on to give her a reminder to stay away from the door. She happily sleeps somewhere else now or will wait a safe distance away from the can near our door. Perfect product.

Effective for deterring dog but cats ignored it.
By the time it sprayed the cats were gone. The dogs were not so quick...now I only have to set the can out...don't. Even have to turn it on.

Great training aid!
Not always a fan of "negative reinforcement", but this thing allows me to have eyes on the kitchen when I'm in another part of the house. I'm using it for a 50lb pit mix and 30lb whippet/beagle mix to deter them from (a) entering the kitchen (all the tasty trash and bits!) and (b) as a training aid to deter our little whippet to not jump the fence outdoors. Definitely need to use consistently (the bigger one knows when it's not there and stole a stick of butter the other day), one is super sensitive to it, the other tries to figure out a way around it and gives up.
It's not intended for outdoor use and is not weather proof, so we only use it periodically to teach the jumper to avoid the area of the yard he can jump out of. It works if we reinforce it about once/week. We only leave it out for a short period of time and only in good weather.
Can go through batteries a bit fast (last between 4-6 weeks), but not a big challenge overall.
One of our dogs is very fearful of buzzing sounds/beeps (like smoke alarms), so this option for a deterrent is great. He really dislikes the sound, but it does not send him into a fearful panic like other buzzer/beep sounds can make.

Works great! But not if you use it for urine marking
First of all Chewy.com has been awesome! This product really deters the cats away but made my one cat that is spraying spray in a different spot. It scared them away from the room of which I put the canister in but now she is marking in a different location. I recommend it for detering cats away from scratching on something or you just simply do not want them in a certain area.

it works but they keep raising the price
I usually buy these and started buying them here because of the price compared to the local pet store however the few times I ordered it the price went up twice. Once can was faulty and never stopped leaking so the next day it was empty. Im going to start looking to get it somewhere else, sadly. Ive shopped here allot and sent allot of my friends here but only because the price was lower. Its not lower anymore

It is great. My kitty developed a bad habit and this solved it.
We have had our pet for 8 years and never had a problem with him ignoring the litter box. We took him to the vet to make certain there were no health issues and he was okay. This worked; I love my kitty again.

Works great !
I put this in areas that I would like my kitties not to get to. As soon as it senses motion it emits a spray and startles them and they move away...totally harmless, have used it for a long time.

Work very well, I have 4 cats, and they have helped to keep them off counter tops, islands, and furniture. After awhile they have no desire to jump onto these areas anymore.
