Counter-surfing kitties have you down? It's time to show the furballs who's really the boss around here. The Ssscat Automated Cat Deterrent ($40) is so brilliantly simple, we're amazed it took this long for somebody to think of it. A motion sensor is connected to a pressurized canister full of harmless, odorless gas. When your cat decides to go exploring in forbidden places, Ssscat emits a high-pitched noise and gives them a brisk squirt. The results are hilarious. No cat? Don't worry - it's also great when used on roommates and family members.
