Cats make such wonderful pets always there for you to pet them and just make your day nicer. Unfortunately, cats also like to pee all over the place, and unlike dogs which you can housebreak and teach them not to do it. For cats, it’s not a “just at first” kind of thing, while you can definitely teach your cat to use the litterbox (and I even know someone who manages to teach his cats to use the toilet..)
I personally could never get a 100% success rate with it. Which means that sooner or later you will walk into a room and get hit by that horrible smell of cat urine odor. The goods news is, this article has quite a few tips on how to remove cat urine smell which should help the situation.
Where Is The Cat Urine?
Seeing how cats like to pee all over the place the answer will probably be “everywhere”. But different objects or surfaces on which a cat has urinated might require different methods of removal. If it’s something that you can put into a washing machine, then do that and just add about 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar to your regular detergent.
If it’s a flat surface like linoleum, tile or hardwood floors (or the top of a table.. love my cat!) then cleaning cat urine is fairly simple. If it’s on a large rug or carpet then it’s much harder, especially if you don’t find it right away and it dries up.
Removing Cat Urine
If the pee hasn’t dried up yet, then use paper towels to absorb as much of it as you can (especially crucial on the carpet.) Once all the urine has been absorbed use a mixture of 3/4 water and 1/4 vinegar (some recommend 2/3 water and 1/3 vinegar.) Pour the mixture over the spot and then use paper towels to soak it up. Sprinkle some baking soda over the spot, then vacuum it up in a few hours or so. On a surface like linoleum, you may not even need to use the baking soda.
