In a desperate attempt at saving my Christmas tree, I bought this for my kitten...it did absolutely nothing. What a disappointment.

Cat appears to have gotten used to it.

I purchased this product at the store and they said if it doesn't work I can return it as long as it is still about half full. I figured I couldn't go wrong with buying it! I have a leather couch and chair and my cat loves to scratch at it so I sprayed it all over both pieces of furniture and it didn't take up much of the bottle. It seemed to work great at first. I even went out of town for 2 days and left him alone in the house and the furniture remained untouched. But unfortunately about a week or so after the first spray he started to scratch again and now he will start scratching the furniture once it dries. It appears he has gotten used to it and I've used to much to return it. So I believe the product has potential to be good but it doesn't last and isn't worth buying.

I have sprayed this on my new furniture and rug and both my cats (not related to each other) have no reaction at all to the spray. They scratch everything as if nothing is on it. The odor has no effect on them whatsoever.

I bought this so our cats would stop scratching our new rug. Despite the fact that they have a scratch board, they still continue to tear apart the couch and rug even right after spraying it.

Ive had an old couch for several years that I had no particular love for. It was functional but made of old material that resembled tightly woven yarn. My cat didn't claw anything but the sides of it - and it never showed much wear from years of cat abuse.
Fast forward to when I move into a new home, and naturally I trashed the old couch, and bought a new one. It didn't occur to me that kitty would think it was still okay to go after the new couch. With microfiber sides - it was a disaster waiting to happen. Sure enough, not ten minutes after it was delivered, there was kitty, stretching his claws and marking his territory.
Kitty isn't scared of water bottles. He climbs in the bath any chance he gets! So I went to Petco, and after reading reviews on several products decided to give this anti-scatch spray stuff a try. Kitty has only touched the couch once since then, and quickly seemed to change his mind and never went after it again! To make sure he'd stay away, I went out and got a cat scratcher for him. Now kitty is happy with his new scratcher, and so am I on my nice new couch.
I spray the couch once a aweek, and it, coupled with the new avenue for his scratching needs, I no longer have issues with scratching. It may survive a few years yet!
I recommend this product - but I can understand that it may not work for some. My kitty has never before encountered anti-scratch sprays as I never used them until now. A cat who is used to scratch sprays, may not be so easily dettered.
Good luck!
I would recommend this to a friend!

My kid's new cat destroyed her grandpa's prize couch, practically triggering an eviction ! (not really ... but closer than the benevolent grandfather has ever come since offering us refuge here a few years ago)
Fortunately, NM cat scratch deterrent spray WORKS! You have to apply to pretty much daily but (together with StickyPaws tape strips) it has worked to totally rebuff the cat. If you don't apply it everywhere on the couch the cat may scratch a new location; when this happens, I spray the spray right in front of the cat & he seems to get the message that the coach is going to have this (to him) horrible scent that neutralizes his smell glands in his paws. To a human, it smells great! Clove & orange oil l think. Because of this product, the cat & we get to stay in our happy home ...
I would recommend this to a friend!

I have two cats. One is an angle, one is a devil. The devil likes to scratch the carpet, chairs, pillows, mattress, etc. I have tried everything. The only thing that is effective is to squirt him with water while he's in the act. I was hoping this spray would be a deterrent, but it isn't. It works as good as the water bottle- I shake it at him and he runs. :-(
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
