Well, it is Christmas season again and I took the whole day to decorate my lovely Christmas tree – now for a pet-proof Christmas tree with SSSCat Pet Spray Deterrent. I have two young cats who would just love to climb the tree and destroy it in no time flat. My 100 pound dog, Bailey, would love to play with and maybe even snack on the glass ornaments if I were not watching him! I’m so worried he might actually eat one and get glass in his stomach. Then an emergency trip to the vet. Ugh! Not a jolly Christmas activity and it could very easily turn deadly for the poor unsuspecting dog. I’ve had other cat and dog mishaps with past Christmas trees and this year I was determined not to let it happen.
This year I heard about PetSafe SSSCat Pet Spray Deterrent from my aunt who tried it on her tree to keep her young Collie, Maizie, away from her beloved sparkling ornaments. She used two so that they were on two sides of the tree and had great results so I tried it. I’ve had it now for a week and it’s keeping the two cats and the dog away! In the beginning I could hear the devices hissing followed by a cat or the dog running in the opposite direction! Funny, right? Then, after a couple of days they avoided the tree altogether. After all these years it’s great to finally have a simple and unobtrusive solution that’s totally safe for your pet.
How Does It Work? Motion-detection
PetSafeSSSCat Pet Spray Deterrent’s automatic spray system is canned air the size of a nightlight that uses infrared to monitor movement up to 3 feet away to keep pets out of unwanted areas. The spray is just air so it’s harmless, odorless and stainless. You put it under your tree at pet-level and is hardly noticeable. A great solution.
The PetSafe SSSCat Pet Spray Deterrent is an automated pet deterrent that uses spray to set boundaries in the home. The fully adjustable nozzle uses a motion detector and temperature change to sense when your pet approaches and then emits a harmless spray of air to discourage your pets from entering unwanted areas. Each can of compressed air holds approximately 80-100 sprays. The motion detector uses 4 AAA batteries (not included).
The PetSafe SSSCat Pet Spray Deterrent has a delay of 2 minutes at start and 30 – 40 seconds between sprays.
Keeping Boundaries in Your Home
PetSafe SSSCat Pet Spray Deterrent is not only a great solution for keeping your Christmas tree safe but can be used to keep pets off counters, away from trash cans, prevent them
from scratching or climbing on furniture and keep them away from any other belongings you might want to protect. Keeps unwanted feral cats or other critters away too if you put it outside. There’s also a convenient on/off switch.
If you start putting these out in multiples, it could get pricey at $30 each, but with 80-100 sprays (about 3 cents per spray) they last at least two months with persistent pets. And you can get refills for only $14. Most pets can be trained quickly and you can just move the SSSCats that were on the Christmas tree (I recommend at least two for the tree) to a new location that needs protection from pets. Very versatile!
PetSafe SSSCAT Spray Deterrent is a well-designed product that really works with no harm to your pet. It’s priced reasonably so you can get a few to protect different areas in your house. Great for protecting the Christmas tree!
