View Full Version : Stinky Cat Pee on Baby Playmat
OK so today I find that my cat has p1ssed all over the new floor playmat/ gym that we gave our DS for Christmas :banghead:
I expected a bit of jealousy/ territorial behaviour when we brought bub home (he's 11 weeks now), but she was fine, and she hasn't done it to any of his other stuff (even his cot and change table, which she used to sleep on before he arrived). So I thought we might have been safe. Not so. The mat is brand new, so it's not like she thought it was hers. Maybe she just thinks that anything on the floor is fair game? Or maybe it's because it smells new that she's peed on it? :confused:
Anyway I don't want to have to chuck it out, it's only a few days old, so I'm soaking it now. We'll pack it up when not in use (just to be safe) but I don't want her peeing on it again especially while bub is playing on it.
How do I fully get her scent out so that she doesn't keep doing it? I thought maybe if I sprinkle orange essential oil on it (I heard cats don't like citrus)? Any ideas?
Try biozet laundry detergent. It works for dogs pee, dunno about cats pee.
Cat pee is one of the worst smells in the world I reckon. My cousin breeds cats and her house reeks. All the biozet in the world won't help that place.
Oh dear! All I can say is this is just the beginning...sorry to say! This happened to us when DS was born...started with one thing, then another another and another and both cats have been living outside for 3 years and still peeing over things outside! Its just disgusting and my DH has been wanting to get rid of them for ages but I just can't part with them....made the commitment to have them and all that! No suggestions as I have tried everything and nothing worked for me!!
thankfully she's a girl cat so her pee isn't as bad as a boy cat, but it still has that horrible cat stink that just won't go away...
anyway I'm soaking it at the moment with biozet (which we use anyway) and lavender + orange oils and will add more essential oil to the final rinse. Maybe it will be enough to get rid of the smell but if not, it's gonna go in the bin :mad:
OH SORRY TO HEAR THIS! BLOODY CATS! HA I HAVE HAD ISSUES WITH MY PUDDY TOO! IM ALMOST DUE AND WE HAVE HAD TO KEEP DOORS CLOSED IN OUR HOUSE TO STOP OUR CAT GOING INTO THE NURSERY ETC. MY CAT HAS PEED ON TWO OF OUR BEDS IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS BUT HE HAS BEEN OK LATELY AND HOPEFULLY WILL STAY THAT WAY.
BUT TO GET RID OF CAT URINE..(I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING AND I SWEAR BY THIS AS NOTHING ELSE HAS FULLY GOTTEN RID OF THE SMELL)..WHAT U CAN DO IS TRY THE FOLLOWING:
i FOUND THIS WEBSITE AND BASICALLY U USE WHITE VINEGAR TO TWO PARTS WATER. GO TO THE WEBSITE I ATTACHED ABOVE AND READ IT AND TRY IT OUT. I ALSO JUST WASHED MY QUILT COVERS IN THE WASHING MACHINE WITH VINEGAR AND DISINFECTANT. I HAVE FOUND ITS COMPLETELY GOTTEN RID OF THE SMELL.
GOOD LUCK :fingerscrossed:
Well, as sandj, Vinegar works well, as does aniseed (if you can handle the smell) Eucalyptus does too....
Hope this helps....
I think vinegar is supossed to neutralise urnine smell.
Not sure how to prevent her from doing it again though. Good luck!
i just posted my big long cat pee problem i looked to see if any similar threads and missed this one!!!
it looks like a few of you have had some bad peeing problems.
But with regards to the smell, my cat has been peeing inside every few days for the past 4 months, BIOZET really does get the smell out. i think it breaks down the enzymes or something. i always have a real good sniff after washed normally in machine and i really cant detect any smell at all.
As one of the other ladies said, this may be just the start.
(and it hasn't given any hope to me as my first bub due in may!!! looks like no hope of getting better). :(
