      :o

      Outside of my window, there is a spot that neighborhood cats have chosen to use as their urinal or they have sprayed,  The smell is so strong that it can be smelled even with the window is closed.  Summer is the worst.  Is there anything that I can apply on the area that will prevent them from spraying there?  Or to kill the odor?  HELP!!

        There should be commercial products available at your local pet store or veterinary supply store.  Be careful of applying them to plants.  Read the label; some of these  can kill your  plants.
        Another solution is to scatter mothballs on the ground.  Most cats hate them. ;)

          You might want to check out on the Frugal Life site https://www.thefrugallife.com/pets.html

          If its in the dirt, I would replace the dirt by digging up the infected dirt.  If its on the wall, I would seal the spot with Kilz or something similar or use the product I reference below.  Then paint over it.  The link I referenced above has some good ways to limit cats coming to your property.

          A product specific to removing pet urine ordors can be found at  http://www.healthypetcorner.com/FRR/petforce.html

          This product has been used in kennels, barns and stalls effectively.

          Hope that helps.

            Try shaking cayanne pepper heavily there. Once the cat goes to lick its paws and gets a hot mouth he will put two and two together and realize he’s not going back to your yard.

              *grin*  Okay, first, dump a box of baking soda where it stinks…  

              Second, get a motion activated sprinkler and set it up there.  Cats HATE getting wet.  

              There are some cleaners meant for getting rid of urination odors such as OUT!…  They are usually on the pet food aisle or sometimes the cleaning supplies aisle.  Clean anything above the dirt with those…

                :( I also have a problem with cat urine.  I have never dealt with this before so I’m looking for some helpful tips.  I took in a stray cat this winter and she has been urinating in her litter box as well as on the blankets/bedding and the mattress and carpets in my guest room.  I was told she was too old and weak to get spayed b/c I thought maybe it had to do with her being in heat.  I have noticed that when the litterbox isn’t clean enough she will use the bed instead or if she is aggrivated by my other cat she’ll use her blankets etc.  I’m looking for a way to remove the odor mostly from the mattress.  I have been able to remove the smell from the bedding and carpets using something called trizyme which is a detergent booster.  With the mattress though it soaks in.  I started with a solution of the trizyme and covered the mattress where it was soiled with the solution, let it sit and then used my carpet cleaner to suck the water up.  It still smells and I was wondering what my best bet would be as far as house hold remedys and how to deterr her from using the bed.

                  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.

                    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.

                      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.

                        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
