Rated 3 out of 5 by jmarcink It works on occasion especially when the canister is new, but becomes ineffective over time.

You'll have to rig up something to keep the bottle stable. Top heavy and easily falls.
Good combination to other things, but as a standalone to prevent door scratching, its ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by deedee does deter cats from areas
This product does deter cats from areas but it is very difficult to put the top on the can (the instructions really do not explain well) and it doesn't last long enough. I have to keep purchasing more cans to keep the cats from some areas of the home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kobuk Does not go off
I had to get a replacement for the first one I purchased as it would not go off when the cats walked in front of it on time. Got the replacement and it does the same thing. It does not good in training if it won't go off in time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dean Great idea, good execution.
Ssscat has a great idea to train your cats where NOT to go. The motion sensing head does not always seal completely onto the can resulting in occasional short usages. I have 2 devices that give uneven results but overall they achieve the desired effect: keeping your cats off of things you'd rather not have them climbing on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CarpeDiem When it works it is helpful
I have purchased SEVERAL of these (I think over eight now) and I agree with what many other reviewers have said - the top is NOT easy to attach to the can. Sometimes you have to attempt this several times. :(
Two sprayers that I ordered didn't work at all, but of course Chewy was great about replacing those! As another reviewer stated, I also have not had a can that provided anywhere near the 100 sprays (as the manufacturer advertises). I do think they are pricey. If they worked 95% of the time, I would be much happier with paying what they charge for them.
It is also a little frustrating to have the sprayer not go off when you see a cat in front of it, then another cat walks in front of it,....and still no spray. Then I go over to check what is wrong and SSSST! It sprays me!
If they could improve the design I would be thrilled, as it is frustrating when they don't consistently work. I have followed the manufacturer's troubleshooting instructions (for when these don't work), but those instructions have not remedied the trouble (with the sprayers only intermittently working).
I have pet cats and foster kittens, so having something to deter them off of counters has been a necessity, but again, only when they work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda14 This really works!
My young cat kept jumping up onto my dresser where I keep my jewelry and knocking it to the floor - anytime of day or night. Well, the hissing sound that the Ssscat Pet Deterrent uses changed her mind about that. So far, so great! The scented sprays didn't keep her away at all - in fact she'd go up to them and sniff the bottles.
All-in-all, am very happy to have found this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockytop Product does what it's intended to do. Love it!!!
Pssst is fabulous! It keeps my cats away from key spots they shouldn't be in. It has helped train them to not go near the places I want to keep them from. Happy dance!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CatMom202 Works effectively
This has solved the problem with my kittens jumping on the counter tops. Wish I could set the spray distance though, as I was always setting it off by just walking by. But all in all I was very pleased with the product and would order again. It is a lot kinder than spraying the cats with water or fussing with sticky tape.
