Those Terrible Cat Odors

How do you get rid of them?

Between us taking a 4-H roadtrip and the basement (where the litter boxes are located) flooding, our house has become cat stinking grounds this week. It's unfortunate because we have company over often and it's just unpleasant to live with, period. Do your cats "revenge pee" when you leave for a day or two as well? They seem to behave better when we get a "sitter" for them, but this time we just had someone come over to let the dogs out since we were gone for one night.

In my experience, the only thing you can do is find the source (use a blacklight detector) and treat it ASAP with an enzyme cleaner made for cats. If not, it's pretty much hopeless. Those things can SMELL up a room. You can get both of these items at a pet supply store, and the enzyme solution can be found at Target, too. I have had success with some other items (baking soda, simply washing in the machine), depending on how much urine was present, but the enzyme stuff is my favorite go-to solution.
