View Full Version : Cat Spray...oh yuck man!
Our elderly cat has decided to pee in OUR bedroom, it smells so bad that it brings tears to my eyes, i've been told to use charcol, vinigar and bi carb.... is there anything else?
You could try a product called spray away... I am not sure where you get it (maybe try ebay) or urine off.....
They sell products for this at the vets.
More importantly, there has to be a reason why he is doing it. Sometimes cats do this (especially older one's) because they know they have something wrong and are trying to tell you something.
I would book him into the vets for a check up as he could have a urinary track problem or kidneys.
I hope he is ok though :fingerscrossed:
I actually know the reason why he's doing it... he's kitty litter was in the bathroom locked behind the door because bubby kept playing sandpit in it, but we forgot to put it back out where he normally goes and the poor old boy had to go somewhere, I'm thinking that he did it in my room to let me know that he had no other access to his potty... but he's done it and the smell is sooo bad in my room that I'll try anything to get rid of the smell, i'm going to the vets this afternoon to get some smelly stuff to fix it..hopefully that will work
:laughing: a child's diet is not fulfilled without their fair share of kittly litter!!!! :laughing:
Did I say that out loud...:rolleyes:
My dad used to have a carpet cleaning business. If the smelly stuff from the vet's doesn't help, you will probably have to lift up your carpet and cut out the piece of underlay underneath it and replace it. Once the cat wee is in the underlay you cannot get rid of it and it will always return no matter what spray you use to hide the smell. That is all the sprays do, hide/mask the smell not get rid of it. I hope this helps
Ewwww you poor thing!
Hope you get rid of the smell hun :D
Stinks doesnt it and its very hard to ever fully eliminate the smell.
My cat peed in my walk in robe at my old house a couple of times and it was ferral. Tried everything from vinegar to carpet cleaner to get the smell out.
No matter how much I soaked I couldnt fully get it out so I put a nice glade smelly thing in my robe so our clothes wouldnt reak of cat wee.
Thanks for the replies ladies, I really appreciate all the help I can get with it...ok so after I had my little online chat with you all yesterday, I went to the shops, I brought some cat off spray and this other stuff that 'stops' the stink..pewwwwie...then we hired a carpet cleaner and done the carpet (we went all out it was that bad) oh the smell comming out of the carpet was just too gross, anyway, after lifting the matrise off the bed and discovering what was under it OMG! would you believe that the old boy actually was peeing on an old baby change mat that I had stored under it, which is what carried nearly all of the stink! I nearly died, I can't believe he peed on the baby chage mat!!!!! So it all ended up really good, we threw out the change mat and carpet cleaned under the bed by emptying two bottles of vinigar under there (just in case) then using the carpet cleaner to do the rest with a double dose of chemical, i've sprayed where the change mat was, he actually didn't quite pee on the floor its just the spray back from when he peed on the change mat.... Still can't get over the fact he peed on the change mat, really he's a smart cat!
So far the stink has gone, it smell's fresh and clean, although give it a day and i'll see, we live in Townsville and the heat has been getting to 35 lately (which is probably why it was stinking soooo bad)
Hopefully he won't go there again....
Its great you've found the source and reason. Our cat has been sterilised but he still sprays to mark territory or when anxious....it drives me nuts....its stinks to high heaven, its worse than pee. There is not much I can do to stop him doing it as he does it when he feels insecure and he is a very nervous cat due to past treatings in another household (not ours). So I know about that smell:barf: ...hope it stays out for you
