Cat Urine/Spray

The Mythbusters addressed this method in a program a few years ago. I tried it, modified it and it WORKS!  They suggested using hydrogen perodide mixed with baking soda in some hot water with a touch of detergent. Wash floors with it and it is supposed to removed even skunk odor.  I decided to use some oxyclean instead of the peroxide. It is cheaper and makes more if you buy to Baking soda in a four pound bag.  When I mix this up and washed cat and dog urine odor.. it was wonder full

Try soaking mattress with white vinager and leaving in sun to dry?  I agree with the poster who said get a plastic sheet cover to protect the bed.

Maybe put a litter box in the bedroom for her to use rather than the bed?  Make sure it is always clean for her?  

Petco/Petsmart sell natural pet deterrants made from things like bitter apple that may keep her off the bed and won't smell.

First, please do not put cayenne pepper down.  That is cruel and inhumane - the cat will get it in its eyes and cats have been known to scratch their own eyes out.

Second. Pour white vinager on the spot and let dry.  Repeat often.  Then seal the area with kiltz and paint over it.

Third, go to the pet store and get some HUMANE pet deterants.

I would suggest replacing the mattress and buying a waterproof cover that can be washed when it happens so that the mattress doesnt get damaged again.  I don't see how you could get it out of a deep mattress.
