Enzyme cleaner for cat urine


Enzyme cleaner for cat urine odour

I have cats. Several of them. My husband is allergic to their feline hair and skin. He is also allergic to cats. Cats do have one major problem that bothers us: Their urine. It is the consistency, color and smell that really gets to me. I don't want to call my cats "dirty", but with all the time I spend cleaning up and picking up their solid waste in my home and in the yard I am just not comfortable with the idea of their "urine". I want my home to be a clean, odor-free place for my family to live and I want my pets to live in the same type of environment. I do not like the smell of cat urine on carpets and furniture. Even walking through a litter box makes me gag! I want to know what enzyme cleaners to be used in "cleaning" cat urine and its odour from household items.

I bought some enzyme cleaner at Walmart, but the smell of the urine is so strong it will never come off.

What I am looking for is a product that will break the consistency of the urine so it is easy to vacuum up. I also want to find a product that will get rid of the smell. After cleaning the home I am hoping I won't smell the odor again. I have had cats before, but we have a new batch of "kids" now. We are trying to find the right products to keep the smell and odor out of our home and carpet. If there is a solution on a product that does not break the consistency of the urine I will buy that also. Thanks for all the help.

We have a few cats, I think 8 or 9 now and they have been trained not to pee in the house but I have to vacum and sweep the floor up every day...I think it must be around 60 degrees in here the way it smells...I have tried everything like a steam cleaner and carpet shaper...Nothing works...

I have used the enzymes and it seems to help because the floor stays clean but after awhile it reeks of cat urine and gets worse...

The enzyme works but my question is if you use it on upholstry and carpet if it gets wet there are bacteria spores in the urine it makes it a breeding ground to disease....

If you use the enzyme there must be time between when you use it and when you vacuum to be sure it dries out to prevent rehydrating the urine...I just can't figure out what the optimum time between using the enzyme and the drying time is....

I had the same problem until I went to the vet...He prescribed an antibiotic and to start using enzymes on a regular basis to keep it from reoccurring....I had also given my cats a probiotic to see if that helped...(It did but the smell came back after a few weeks and I started with the enzymes again).....

I have a cat that I want to get fixed and I am thinking of putting her in the cage with one of her brothers as I have four cat cage mates right now but I am afraid that my cat will run away from her brothers...Also if I get the one that is the male I am afraid of the male running away from his brothers because he is stronger and bigger...

How can I train my cats not to run away from each other and not fight?

I have only had one that is scared of me but she is the youngest of the bunch and not used to the new house and I can not train her as she runs when I get out of the car...

Please help me and tell me how you deal with this problem of running away from your other cats...Also if you are going to allow this cat into the house tell me how you deal with fighting between cats in the house...I do not want a fight to happen because I have some expensive items around the house.

I'm sorry you didn't get a response yesterday. The other day was a crazy day. My son and I didn't get to go to the zoo until 10pm and then my niece, aunt, cousins and I missed all of the fireworks at midnight. My brother ended up getting in the way of all of the fireworks. I was so exhausted!

Our cat also has a fear of thunder. If it starts, she runs. If she can see it, she hides. We tried everything. Nothing worked. Finally, we took her to our vet. He didn't try to help. He said it was a learned behavior. I guess it is what it is.

My cat does not run but he will hiss at any cat that is there in the house but is not in his territory. If he hears a cat that is not there in the house, he will hiss and spit if they are close to each other. He will not let them anywhere near him. It is very aggressive.

I wouldn't run if he was anywhere near me. I just let him hiss or spit or whatever he wants to do to me. He always comes to me afterwards and looks at me, as if to say, "That's it. I'm done."

Thanks for your Reply!

I think you should not do any more training if he's scared to death of you.

I agree that not helping doesn't work. If you would like to help, you can just let him hiss. My cat likes to play. I think his hiss is a part of his play time with his mommy. Maybe with your training, your cat will realize that you are trying to help. Just play with him. Don't try to train him with you hissing at him. Cats don't like that. Your training will also take a lot of time. It may not work right away. He could just be playing and testing you.

I'm sorry if this is a repeat topic, but I didn't see it in the search engine.

I don't think you should worry about your cat running and hiding from you. If it makes him feel better, then that is his way to deal with the fear. He is dealing with his fears by hiding. I would let him do this. He can hide in different places. He can hide in his kennel. He can hide in a box or just lie under something. He will figure out how to hide from you in the future.

He just needs to be with you and be around your voice to start getting over that fear. Also I think he needs to know what is ok and what is not ok.

A good test with a kitten is to play with them after they have been fearful of you. Let the kitten play and then you pet them. If they are getting more comfortable, then let them get away if they want to. If they get nervous, they should stay closer.
