Urine Stain and Odor Removing
for a pet urine solution?
By Alan J. Fletcher
At this point I am
desperate to find a solution to my cat urine problem and am willing to try
anything, at any price, to resolve the problem, as long as I don't have to get
rid of my cat, my best feline friend I named Carmen
Carmen is a middle
aged cat, about 7 years old. I rescued her from the humane society about four
years ago. She is a multi-colored cat, with a caramel tone, so I named her
Carmen, after Carmen Electra. She is a lazy mostly indoor cat, but she goes
outside when it is not raining and the mood suits her. Otherwise she likes to
curl up in a ball and sleep on my bed or near the window on her cat condo that
I got for her. Most of the time she uses her litter box when she is home alone
but sometimes she sneaks behind the television and pees in the corner. I don't
know exactly why, perhaps I am at fault for not putting her outside more
often. When she wants to go outside she waits by the door patiently.
It might be all my
fault. Maybe she is not able to hold it very long and I don't notice that she
wants to outside in time. Perhaps she is just lazy, I don't know. Regardless,
I have a couple areas where the odor is pungent and I just can't stand the
smell of cat pee, especially in the warm summer days. I have got to do
something, and replacing the carpet is not my first choice, nor in my budget.
I have tried three
pet urine products in the past 6 months without much success. Recently I saw a
new product on the market, lets call it brand X. This one says it will
cure my urine problem once and for all, I really hope this one works because I
am tired of spending money trying to deal with this problem.
They claim that it
can quickly and easily remove pet urine stains and odor from carpets and
upholstery simply by spraying on their newfangled enzyme solution and letting
it dry. So for about twenty bucks I desperately needed to give it a try,
hoping and praying that this time it will be THE product that will finally
solve my never-ending dilemma of pet urine from my beloved cat.
Once the product
arrived, I eagerly headed to the main hidden area where Carmen tends to
frequent. So I spray and spray the magical solution until my hand becomes very
fatigued, soaking the entire area as the directions have stated. Then I
sprayed the other areas that were not as severe.
During the treatment,
my curious feline wanted to know what I was doing so she came over to the evil
spot and sniffed around momentarily and then fled indignantly. I could tell
that she recognized the stinky area as one of her no-tell zones and she didn't
want to hang around long enough to be held accountable.
After applying the
product I am instructed to wait until the product has time to work it's magic
and dry completely... So I eagerly wait.........................
If you're like me,
waiting for something to happen is nerve racking. Waiting for a stain to
disappear or odor to be eliminated is very difficult to see as it happens, but
every couple of hours I headed back to the scene of the crime and look to see
if there was any noticeable difference. I put my face down close to the carpet
and sniffed eagerly. Not a fun thing to do, and at this point the smell was
still there in full force. Eewwww!
I have to say that
cat urine (or any other urine) is not a nice smell to endure and putting my
nose within two inches of the nasty spot is making me feel like a slave to my
beloved kitty. And although I would never consider giving up my cute little
friend, this urine problem is putting a horrible strain on our relationship. I
have spent over $80 in the last two years on urine remedies, so far no luck in
solving this issue.
The next morning I
woke and went straight to the treated area to see if it had dried. It had not.
I rub my hand across the carpet and feel wetness. My hand now smells of cat
urine. In my eagerness I had used up almost one entire bottle on this one main
spot, so drying time will obviously take longer. I figured if I sprayed on a
ton of this stuff it will work better. Once again my nose is inches from the
carpet hoping to smell nothing more than a sweet fragrance, but the urine
smell was still very evident. I am not going to make any rash decisions until
the area is fully dry.. so I am off to work. I want to make sure this product
has plenty of time to work it's magic. I will check it again when I get home
in about 7 hours...
Home from work I head
straight to the spot to see if the area was dry. It was not. Again I put my
nose to the area hoping for a sweet smelling carpet. Eewwww... no sweet smell
yet. I rub my hand across the carpet and feel wetness. My hand now smells of
cat urine again. This is frustrating. I decide to not deal with this
again until the next morning.
I wake up and the
first thing on my mind is the cat urine issue. I have more important issues to
deal with but this issue is the one on my mind. What have I become? A slave to
my cat? There are major issues at work that I am facing, legal and financial
obligations looming but still the cat pee is the first thing I think about
when I wake up. So, I head out to the living room, move the TV out a little
and once again rub my hand across the carpet and I discover the area is
finally dry! I quickly place my nose to the spot and.... It still smells like
cat pee. But there is a hint of fragrance too. I guess it is like the old
saying of fish and roses. I think the smell is not as bad, but never the less,
the smell is still there. Even after two weeks, the smell is still just as
strong. Now my cat has found a new spot to pee, behind the plant next to the
couch. It happens to be near the heat vent. I think my problem has become
For those of you
looking to find the best deal for your pet urine problems. I don't believe any
quick-fix spray is going to do the trick. One product I have found does work
very well but it is not a quick fix. It requires some effort and diligence. If you are interested in replacing your
carpet I have the information you need to save time and money.
