Just get about 20 cats yourself, you will soon not notice it at all....

(Why bother, are there no other properties for sale in your area?)

I'll bet its flip! No matter though, you can get rid of that stink.:thumbup:

Odor neutralizers that are enzyme based does a pretty good job with a LOT of cleaning...

It will NOT come our of any pourous material easily.

Walls, furniture, floors, insulation, subfloors: rip it out. The smell is surface smell, so remove the material, give a good cleaning (bleach and enzyme), and good to go!

(don't forget to clean the vents, a friend of mine's cat like to piss down the air vent; kind of like a bidee (that toilet that quirts water upwards) of air)...

LOL Tscar!

My wife has a 19 year old cat that sometimes loses it. She bought a product off of QVC that works GREAT at taking the odor out.

It cant live that much longer can it??

Nah, 5 or 6 years and it's toast!:laughing:

If those previous owners were that filthy....forget telling what other filth is "buried" in that house...
