Really bad choice

Four problems with this product. 1) The packaging that wrapped the bottle was almost impossible to remove; 2) the spray pump didn't function; I had to transfer the liquid to a different spray bottle; 3) it was expensive compared to other similar products; and 4) worst of all, it smells like a strong industrial detergent, the kind you might use to clean the floor of a garage or to scrub a sidewalk. There's a slight note of rosemary, which is what the product advertises as its appeal, but the extreme chemical smell overwhelms it. It fills my home with a toxic stink. Perhaps this spray will deter my cats from scratching, but it might also deter them from breathing.

Doesn’t work

The spray nozzle on the bottle was broken when I got it. Luckily I had a spare spray bottle in the house so I was able to flip it. I sprayed the whole couch down and was very generous with it. Three minutes later my cat jumped on the couch and laid down. It did nothing to deter her whatsoever. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 only because it smells really nice, so at least we have a fabric refresher out of it.

Really works

Two seven month old kittens and they want to jump, scratch and bite everything still. This spray works better than any I have tried so far, and it is pretty instant too. I use it on fabrics, wood, plastic surfaces and have had no troubles. I do apply it frequently when I see the kittens start getting interested in something they should not be getting onto/into, but I am hoping that we are building habits as we do this.

Does the Job

I’ve been using this product for a few days now and already see results. I sprayed it on the back of my couch first in case it stained but it did not so I sprayed it where my cats usually scratch. It doesn’t smell bad and it’s doing a good job of keeping them from scratching it. I would recommend it but don’t forget to reapply as I noticed it does wear off after a while

This definitely takes a few applications for the kitties to smell and recognize not to scratch! Another thing that was bothersome was that the sprayer did not work and after fiddling with it for 10 or so minutes I was able to get the nozzle to spray! Hopefully long term my kitties don’t want to keep scratching my brand new couch.

It works and smells nice!

I have to say it does work to deter cat scratches around the house. When I have guests and bring out special occation draperies and curtains I spray a bit and it keeps the kitties away. Extra bonus is that it also smell nice and made of natural ingredients. I have not had any problems with the spray staining fabrics.

My furniture is appreciative!

My cats are obsessed with destroying my new couch. After a few sprays of this daily it has helped tremendously. She walks by and sniffs the area but will no longer wreck havoc on my furniture. It literally just takes a few sprays which means this bottle can last a few months. Shipping was also fast!

This spray works perfectly for stopping my cats from destorying my furniture. I have some expensive chairs and they had been clawing them up. I spray this on and I dont have to worry about them destroying anything anymore. Great product and great price!

nozzle doesn’t work ):

The smell is pleasant. I know because it leaked on my hands when I opened it but the spray nozzle doesn’t work. I let the kitten sniff my hand to see if it worked anyway (not really). I can’t spray it because nothing comes out when you push down. I guess I will have to put it in another bottle to see if it actually works to get my cat to stop scratching the couch. My kitten doesn’t seem to be bothered by it.

Does the job!

My cat sometimes gets in the habit of scratching the same piece of furniture in the same place, so I wanted to try something to deter her! So far so good! I did a spot test first just to make sure it wouldn’t ruin or discolor the fabric, and it’s good to go!
