4.0 out of 5 stars Great for keeping kitty off the counters, August 11, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Ssscat does what it says - it senses your cat, and then lets loose a spray and an alarm squeal. We have a very bad cat, but after a few encounters with this thing, he has stayed off the countertops. We recently got a second, so that we can have one for the dining room table and one for the baby's bassinet, and they're working fine as well. (You can call me a control freak, but there's something very satisfying about hearing the spray & alarm at 2 in the morning, followed by the sounds of a running cat.)

A couple pieces of advice: (1) You will need 4 AAA batteries per unit. (2) The spray is good for a few months to a year, depending on how many times you forget the unit is there and spray yourself. At that point, you can either buy the refill can or just rely on the sound alarm. (3) The alarm usually goes off once after you arm the unit, while it's "warming up." To avoid wasting a spray, I set it to "sound only" until the warm up alarm is over, then turn it to the "sound + spray" setting.

This product no longer has a warning "sound" as stated in this review... buyer beware.

Yep we just got this a month ago, and there is not warning sound. The can also didn't last a year. It's already out.

Same here. Spray only that makes a little sound, but no sound emitter as described in this review. Spray can lasted a little over a month.

Thanks for the update - I've tried to add the info to my review, but Amazon is not letting me save the revised review. I'll keep trying.

You are right the one I got does not have a warning sound either. I am going to call them and see that they say. Kid you?

There is no alarm/beeping sound to the current SSSCat device. It's either "on" or "off" - "on" means it will spray. There is another type of device on the market with this feature, but the current SSSCat is no louder than a hissing cat.
