    I've cleaned up after bunches of sick animals, my own and otherwise, and I can tell you from experience that you are in for a battle.

    You need to break the protein chains in the urine to get rid of the smell and to prevent other animals from using that space the same way. Rubbing alcohol is a cheap solution to the problem, and if you have a local pharmacy that carries the wintergreen kind, even better. Apply it, let it soak down through the padding and cover the area generously when you do. Let it set for about five minutes and use cloth to take up the liquid. Cover the area with something like FeBreeze. Do that three or four times. It shouldn't harm your carpet or flooring, but test a small patch first.

    Good luck! It sounds like your elderly cat may be experiencing some renal issues with age. Been there

    Welcome to the site

    Have you tried to put a cat-litter box somewhere your kitty could goto bathroom in?

    We have 2

    And also you might wanna have her checked for a urine tract infection.. (sometimes that causes it)

    Good luck my friend,good luck!

    Welcome back to the 80s!

    I'll have to try your solution Brandy. My 19 year old is starting this on the brand new carpet.

    Not gonna work! The cat is old and it's urinary tract is obviously weak. Cat's aren't like humans. Their Urinary tract is not designed to "hold it in" like a human. Besides, where would you propose to stick the litter box? What if the cat is too far away to make it there in time? Next step would be follow the cat around with a litter box....not gonna happen. Litter boxes are more or less for cats with a healthy strong urinary tract.

    Brandy's suggestion sounds like a more viable solution in this case.

    Re: Need help!! How do I clean up cat pee to remove smell?

    Being we have 10 cats, I know first hand what you are going through.

    I would advise against any carpet freshener/ odor control stuff. All that does is make the carpet smell better for us humans. Plu all you get is piss and flower smell..yuck!! Remember the cat can still smell where it pissed even if you can not.

    You HAVE to kill the bacteria that is in the pee or else the smell will stay.

    A cheaper solution that works good...

    If the pee is fresh, place a paper towel over the spot and soak up as much as possible. Then in a mixing bowl mix together 1-16 oz of hydrogen peroxide. 2 tbs. baking soda and 1 tsp of dishwashing liquid. Saturate the spot with that. Let dry then vacuum.



    Now a more expensive way is to use Simple Solution or Nature's Miracle Follow the directions. Look for a produst that syas "Effectively kills bacteria" or else you waste your time.

    You can also put baking soda directly on the spot to soak up urine. In a pinch I have even used peroxide only on the spot then let dry and later on took the time to scrub the area. Vinegar works good too. We keep a spray bottle near the outside for stray cat who spray.

    The best thing you can do is rent a carpet steam cleaner and use a product like Natures Miracle on the spot. We have a decent steam cleaner. ( Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet ) I use Natures Miracle in the carpet shampoo tank rather then carpet shampoo. Works fine and is easier then renting one every week.

    I had the same problem with my cat Lupe. She was pissing on the carper in the corner of one of my rooms. I was furious when I finally found out. I wanted to get rid of her or put her outside. Once I calmed down I did some research online. Most cats will only urinate outside of their box when they are sick or old. If sick it is their way of saying I need a vet. As they get older they forget where to go potty.

    Once they have kidney failure, they just can't help it anymore. If there is some other kind of problem like diabetes, they may have fewer accidents but they still cannot help it.

    Putting out an extra box usually will not do the trick, but it may every so often cut down on the problem. Like Dio says, when they are sick like that, they have no control.

    The only thing you can do is to fully break the protein chain that they are passing in the urine.

    The bacteria that TopCat is talking about is the result of sterile urine mixing with the environment when it leaves the cat. No matter how super clean you keep a place, there are ALWAYS bacteria in the environment, and the urine activates it.

    The smell is from the wasted proteins that the cat is passing. Alcohol breaks the urine chain, and then cleaners after will clean the bacteria that are left.

    It's doable, with enough drugs

    10 cats cooperating...I love my cats, but I have no problem telling you that the only way they will all get along at the same time is over food. When they feel like they can "food" ME, there will be peace and harmony throughout the land!
