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?)

CAT URINE odor


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

CAT URINE odor


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??
