PetSafe Ssscat Pet Deterrent Training Aid Refill
Cat is just too smart.
Well, I originally left a positive review for this system on the main product page, but after buying several refills I have admitted defeat.
I believe my cat actually realized that if she set off the can enough times, it would run out of air. She did this for several cans in a row, just walking up time after time and making it go off. After a while it didn't scare her one bit anymore, so she was just wearing it down and biding her time. Perhaps this would work for a more skittish cat, but I can't keep buying so many refills.

For cats that are especially hard to train.
I have a beautiful part Siamese that I adopted at one of our local humane societies. When I picked him up the feline specialist said I would have my hands full with this one and he wasn't kidding! He's the funniest cutest little guy and we put up with a lot of his strange little things but the worst thing is his insistence on eating during the very early hours of the morning. We keep him out of the bedroom but he hits the door bangs on it and relentlessly knocks on it. We've tried everything!! Nothing seemed to get his attention until the Ssscat training aid. We just put it out in front of our door and he lets us sleep as simple as that! I heard it go off a few times but after that he just hides around the hallway until we get up, pick it up and then he gets fed. Everyone is happier now. Excellent invention!! Thank you!

It worked as advertised.
Our cat is a counter cruiser and the first time he got sprayed by the Ssscat was hysterical. He jumped a foot. The product works, but you have to be vigilant and set it all the time. We also would have needed at least two more units to cover the counters and the island, so the consistency wasn't there for us. Then there's the fact that if you turn it on and forget that you did you'll wind up getting sprayed yourself.
We also put it on the living room near the entrance to keep him away from a chair he likes to claw. It did work there, although he would lay in the foyer and study the thing like he was trying to devise a way around it.
Finally, though, the ultimate solution was for my youngest son to take the cat with him when he moved out a week ago. No more missing loaves of bread or packs of hot dog buns.

Sleep through the night!
I am a light sleeper. Any noise or light will wake me. We have four cats, but only two would disturb me during the night through the closed bedroom door. One cat (Abyssinian/Tabby mix) has learned to move the lever handle. He'll play with it, and play with it (making lots of noise!) until the door finally opens and then he can come in and pounce on the bed. I love my kitties dearly, but can't stand being disturbed 3-4 times/night any more. The Ssscat has put an end to their nightly visits! After several nights of an occasional "hisssss," we don't even have to have the unit "on", just the cannister on the floor by the door keeps them out. :) Why did we wait so long!?

HUMANE & EFFECTIVE
Pet Safe is on to something. Have tried beepers, electric mats & others. None work as well or are as easy to manage as the Pet Safe. Doesn't have to be cleaned like the mats. Easy to turn on/off. Adjustable for your use. I have three and they work well and last long. The only thing wrong, (and it's minor), is that the sensors are of different sensitivities. I just changed mine around to get them to be the most efficiently placed. Sometimes I forget to turn them on again when working in an area, but the cats are wary of them still being on and I have no marking or disturbing my work areas. Great product & Chewy is the best.

It's a good product but it doesn't have 120 spray like it claims.Also it take a while to spray so smart cats can get away before the spray.But it still helpful.

Works well at deterring my curious kitten
This is the only way that I can keep my kitten off the kitchen counters. Works well. I bought a second one for the table.
