Great Product - when not DEAD in the box...
3 out of 5 stars, because mine was DOA. I toyed with it for a week with resetting, three different alkaline battery brands from fresh packs - it simply didn't work. I contacted Chewy via their messaging system and within an hour had a replacement shipped overnight. This time it worked! I would have given 5 stars if it was a frictionless experience, but there is some sort of quality issue with the product itself. It's like 1 in 10 are dead in the box. Chewy gets full 5 stars from me, excellent response and re-shipping times from the customer service folks. Their no hassle-haggle-questions return/refund policy is the best.
It works but not forever.
Maybe it's just because I have a little daredevil for a cat but she quickly figured out that the air didn't actually have any consequences and treated it almost like a toy. You also go through the can much faster than people think. I'd hazard a guess that most of the complaints that it stopped working after a week or so is because the can ran out. It works as described, I just don't think its an effective or financially viable long term solution.
Not so thrilled
This is a very finicky device. It seems to work when it wants to. I will often have to jiggle the lid/top in order for it to start working. I would really like to have them replace this one so I would know if they are all defective.
Within 1 week, one had stopped working and as of today (less than 4 weeks of age) all four are no longer functional. These are over priced pieces of useless garbage. Do not waste your money! This is not the first time I have had this experience, but the first time I thought it was just a fluke and it is not. These are purely and wholly defective products.
Wonderful training aid
We used these for years but had a hard time finding it again. So happy we found it. While we do use other products this one covers any area you need. Great for smaller spaces. For most cats a few puffs of air will teach them to stay away, however you do always find that one that could care less about being sprayed with air. Great for cats who spray or are having 'accidents'. Of course you have to figure out the underlying cause also. Make sure nothing else sets it off or you will be going through cans like crazy. Cost is the only downside.
Great! When it works...
I bought my first one for under the computer table. I have a cord chewer and despite covering and hiding cords, he still tried to get them. It worked fantastic! I was super impressed. So I bought another one to keep by the washroom door. My cord chewer is also an opportunist and just waits for someone to open the door so he can escape. That one doesn't seem to work at all. And my first one stopped working. Really, if this was reliable, I'd buy a few more. It works great, when it works. But it isn't reliable, and the price point is way too high for a product that isn't reliable. Especially straight out of the box. And just to be clear, my issue isn't based on how it works with my cats, because it works great on all four of them. My issue is it isn't a product you can trust to function mechanically as it is supposed to. My first one seemed a dream, until it quit working after one canister. Second one doesn't work right out of the box at all. Very disappointing because it was a great solution. Hopefully this technology improves, because I'll be happy to purchase it if it will work correctly for a reasonable amount of time.
No black cats
Doesn't work with black cats. Lilo rubbed against it and it never went off. I can get within 5ft of the sensor and it goes off.
Wish the canister lasted longer
I really like this product. I thought it was a little spendy for a device you cant refill. But I still thought it was worth a shot. I loved how well it worked. It misfired a few times when nothing was in it path but I didn't care about that. But what really makes me not want to buy it again is that the can didn't even last 48 hours even though it was only used at night. I can't see myself spending $20 to refill something every 2 days. I wish the can life went longer.
As expected based on other reviews
As other reviews point out, this product will work but eventually the motion detector stops working most of the time
My 2nd one
A friend bought my first one for me and it finally just gave up the ghost! I had ordered one for my son to have and then I ordered this one for myself. I have a huge male calico cat who loves to get on my sink and sit in the windows above it. Nothing worked to keep him off the counter until I received my first SSSCAT. It appeared to work well until he realized it had run out of spray. I have 2 of them set up in close proximity to the sink and windows. He has now figured a way to jump and not get sprayed most of the time. Unfortunately, I don't think to turn one of them off and I get sprayed and scared several times a day. They are fantastic for your average cat. I really do recommend them. I just have to learn to outsmart this particular cat!
