    Febreeze or another similar product will remove the smell. If you can, wash the rug, spray it, and air it out. If it can’t be washed do the last two steps, but maybe several times. This is also essential to getting your cat to stop peeing on your rug, he/she will continue to do so unless the smell is removed. Try a upholstery cleaner, handwash or some scrubbing with water if it can’t be machine washed. I know you don’t want to leave cat pee in your rug! However, we had cats pee on couch cushions and we just scrubbed with water, sprayed with febreeze, and aired. Voila! Make sure your cat is spayed/neutered too, this is the first thing to curing this problem.

    You might want to try Petsmart or Petco or any pet store. They should sell stain remover sprays.

    This is what I use Premium Capture Spot and Stain Remover (works great!!) found at drugstores, grocery stores, Walmart . . .

    don’t listen to steffy with the fabreeze!! That only covers up the smell, it dosent get rid of it!! Plus, the mix smell of cat pee and fabreeze would be worse.

    get a wet vac if you have one, fully wetten the affected area with a cup of water, and quickly vacum it all up by applying moderate to high pressure from your hand.

    then, get a rag damp with ammonia, and scrub the rug

    Febreeze for the smell, and salt for the color. The salt will absorb the urine and the color of the urine then you use a vacuum to clean it up.

    pour baking soda to absorb wetness and smell. there are severl produts out there to help. google dr. foster and smith for cat cleaning aids

    get rid of the rug or the cat. Once a cat has peed on something, it will pee on that from now on- no matter how many times you try to get rid of the odor. As for getting stains out- any carpet cleaner. You can buy a pet odor remover from petco, but they really don’t work- you can’t smell the odor, but your cat will, and probably will keep peeing on it.

    There is a product called Woolite that takes out pet stains. It comes in a spray bottle type of container.

    stanley steamer for the stain and febreeze for the smell

    Use Urine Gone (as seen on TV!)

  11. Gr8 F8 on Sun, 9th Dec 2012 5:44 am

    put the cat outside, buy new carpet

    go to the pet store or a super market and get a “pet” carpet stain removel spray…

    The smell is only a minor part of the issue here. Even if you cover the smell, the cat can still smell it and will continue to pee in the same spot. Go to your vet or pet store and get something specifically designed to remove pet urine. Then cover the spot with aluminum foil, so your cat will not return to the spot. You may need to keep the foil there for quite some time (months even) to stop the behavior. As someone else mentioned, if you haven’t neutered your pet, do so, as it will also help. Lastly, make sure the litter box is cleaned regularly, as many cats will not use a “dirty” box.

    usually stain remover works

    If it’s an old rug she may be trying to cover another scent with hers, if a cat peed there long ago she’ll smell it. There is stuff called urine gone I bought mine on a shopping channel and it really works you pour it on and let is sit the ensymes eat the urine and the scent is gone. Some people use vinegar to remove the urine smell so you could try either one and see which works best. Try the vinegar first if it doesn’t work then get the urnine gone a good pet store may carry the same thing, just make sure it has the enzymes in that eat the urine, not just a scent to cover it up. Good luck. One other thing if your cata just started this make sure she’s getting lots of fluid and peeing as usual, sometimes when a cat gets crystal in their urine they are showing you that they are having a problem. So keep a good eye on her for awhile. Good luck

    blot up the pee asap. then saturate the area w a enzyme spray for odor and stain removal. let dry then brush the surface nap w a cloth. keep litterbox clean, you may have to clean it morn, midday, evening, and bedtime! try having several litterboxes in different locations of home. i have a cat that did same thing and these suggestions helped me….btw my cat is neutered and this was still happening so while spay/ neuter is great idea for many other reasons, it is NOT a solution for this problem. Spending more time with, added attention to cat may be what it wants and if it gets it, not for being bad kitty but just cause you love it, may help stop this problem too. praise when does use litterbox, “good kitty”! they do understand u happy/mad/sad.

    Hi Candy…consider using a product called Nature’s Miracle found worldwide at any pet store. It’s an enzymatic neutralizer which works by breaking down urine proteins and stains when you pour the liquid on the affected areas to soak thoroughly and then allowing to air dry. Heavily soiled areas require repeated applications. Urine Gone and other pet stain/odour removers are like Nature’s Miracle, however at of the bunch we’ve tried we have found Nature’s Miracle better at eliminating the urine odours after pouring this on the affected areas after a few uses for our exotic wild cats which have very strong urine odour compared to domestic house cats. Oxyclean or hydrogen peroxide will help lift the remaining yellow-colour stains by blotting (not rubbing) the areas stained.

    Here’s more on the product itself:
