Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best deterrent yet! I've bought 20-30 different products - usually something you spray on furniture, carpets etc. Nothing works - and some left stains. I tried all the other remedies others claimed worked from them, bubble wrap on furniture or taped to corners, spritzing with water bottle. Again no luck. I've moved this from item to item (flat screen tv, curtains, antique rug - and all 3 cats have finally learned where they can climb and play and where they cannot. And, because I'm not the one hissing at them - unlike me spritzing them, I'm not the bad guy. Wish this was around 17 years ago when I had my other cats.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of waste, poor design My cats were terrified and I was dancing in victory for about two weeks. But upon installing the 3rd can, the cheap seal that the air can sits in broke and would not hold the seal. Having dealt frequently with compressed CO2 during my paintball years, I could tell that the seal was not designed to last. It was about as strong as a balloon. I'm still trying to find a replacement seal but not having much luck. Also, as someone else mentioned, the open and fold design and the way the can screws in is very poor and awkward to install. You have to be quick or you waste a lot of air.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It worked... for a few hours. After the first few hours it just started venting the can. The cats weren't anywhere near it at the time. I suspect a fault O-ring, but I'll be returning it tomorrow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Petsmart NEVER has the refills!!! I purchased one, it comes with the cartridge. Works great so I purchased another one. Problem is Pets Mart exclusive and they NEVER have the refills in stock. I have to call and have them hold the 1 (never have they had 2)and then run down there to pick up. If I am in the area and stop by they are out of stock and when I call they are usually out of stock. BIG problem since this is the only place you can purchase the refills. I complained to the manger twice now and was assured since this is a new product that this problem would not continue. Two months later, furniture is scratched up and they are still out of refills. Sunbeam can you help! I do not have the extra money to order a case as was suggested or order on line, pay the same price as in the store plus shipping!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product! The first one I bought was defective and drained the can of air as soon as I loaded it. So I returned it to the store and got another one and it works great! We adopted 2 adult cats from a shelter but made the decision when we got them not to let them sleep in our bedroom. The first few months every morning when the alarm went off they would scratch and meow at the door. But soon it became earlier and earlier until they were waking us up at 4:00am. My husband was ready to send them back! We tried double sided tape on the door and barricades but nothing worked until we found this product. It has worked beautifully since the day we got it. The cats have learned not to sit outside our door anymore, they don't even make a peep until I come out and turn it off. I highly recommend it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works but doesn't last! The egg works very well as a deterrent. Cats hate the noise. Unfortunately, the canisters of gas last for about a half-dozen squirts and then need to be replaced. In my house with my three cats, this means a canister lasts a few days at best. WAY too expensive to keep replacing these! So I would give this a big thumbs-down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great tool terrible design Works excellently as a pet deterrent. Unfortunately, the smooth design is difficult to hold and the cylinder as a result is almost impossible to replace tightly such that it does not leak. Changing the way the back/ bottom comes off could solve this. Will not buy or recommend until this design failure is solved
