For SSSCat Deterrent Cat Spray Replacement Can: Click here
I have several of these which have worked great to keep cats off of things. However, this purchase did not include the noisy sound like my previous ones have. So this one only sprays which means it only works when your can of air works. My prior ones can be set to have sound only (with or without air) which gives more flexibility. The concept works to train the cats but if I were buying again I would get the one with sound on/off button.
I was really excited when I got this thinking this is going to really work. If you have a normal cat..one that is maybe on the more jumpy side this would work great!! The noise alone makes me jump. However, if you have a punk of a kitten, he will enjoy setting it off and getting sprayed (insert facepalm). I’m hoping that it may still deter him because he isn’t a fan but he also does not seem to be bothered once up on the counter.
The motion detection is extremely inconsistent. You can jump up and down and wave your hands in front of it sometimes and it does not do anything. The cat can walk across in front of it and sniff it, nothing. But when it does go off, it definitely startles my Maine Coon and he jumps off the counter. I just wish I could count on it all the time. The concept is great.
It works but I found it disappointing. I set it up and it fired whenever I got close. But my cat walked right up to it nothing happened, several times. I was unable to find a configuration that worked on my cat without it going off constantly. I gave it away for someone else to try in a different setting.
This works better than other products I’ve tried to keep my cats off the counter, but it’s a very delayed spray. Usually the cats are on the counter and in the sink by the time it sprays them. They do go running, but sometimes they’ve already got a bite of food in their mouth..
This worked great for a short time, after we got used to getting sprayed first every time we turned it on. It seemed to keep the cats off the counter however. Pretty soon I noticed it wasnt working, I replaced the batteries, and it kept going. Again, without warning the canister was empty. So I bought a refill (not cheap, opted for a double pack) . Now I currently have one full and one almost full canister, changed the batteries several times, and tried every way to get this thing to work. But it simply stopped working. Its too expensive to give up that quickly!
This would be good if they actually worked. Tried multiple, all of them suck. One had a nozzle that leaks all the condensed air over time. None of them reliably activate when something walks in front of it. When turning them on and off, they spray twice, I guess to let you know it's turned on, which is probably the number one way the condensed air gets used because they barely work otherwise. Good idea, but absolute trash product. I even read all the other reviews talking about these issues, but just really wanted something like this and hoped I didn't get bad ones. Unfortunately, that didn't pan out.
This thing will trigger at a piece of toast, fresh out of the toaster. It'll trigger at me or my BF 10 feet away, but it won't trigger at a cat!! And then 2-3 days later it won't even do that. It's a complete waste! If I could give it zero stars, I would!!!
I am impressed with the PetSafe brand. I have some other times from them. They really do make quality products. I thought the price was a little steep, but it's worth a good night's rest. I set this up outside my door before I go to bed. It barely goes off as my cat caught on quickly.
I have purchased this product in the past and needed to replace a unit. The product definitely deters my cat from the countertops. It definitely is worth the money!
