Cats are among the most adorable creatures on Earth, being for us like good interlocutors, and even friends. There are practically no people who do not love or sympathize with cats. However, they have a drawback, namely their specific cat urine smell. Even if they sometimes scratch the curtains, or scatter garland all over your house, their smell becomes a burden for everyone. Some people even have an allergy just from the simple smell of a cat around. What is to be done in the given cases? Are there effective solutions to combat cat urine smell? For all these questions, I will try to answer in the following lines.
Are there “no odor” cats?
If you do not have a cat yet, but you want to have one, first of all, I suggest you pay attention to the advice of the specialists or veterinarians. They believe that most of the cats have no “smell”. Many of these species of cats have been tamed domestically that not only do not have a specific smell but cease to mark their territory, eliminating this habit from their genes. Thus, I recommend you to have such cats and you will have no problems with their smell in the house.
An example would be the “Sphinx”, which not only does not smell but also has no fur, which can be enjoyed by people who are allergic to cats. But even if they do not smell, their toilet needs to be changed periodically, because the urine smells anyway, even if not as much as other cats.
Other cat breeds that do not really have a strong smell are Toyger, Kurilian Bobtail, Scottish Fold etc. You may even ask the vendor if it is necessary to sterilize that animal. There are cases where this is not at all mandatory.
Besides, I would also give you some tips on choosing a cat or a tomcat. I would choose a cat because unlike a tomcat, it does not mark its territory. But if you choose a tomcat, then I think that it should be castrated, but this option is the choice of the master, many of whom do not take this step. Besides, an uncastrated cat will bring a little more to the village or to a villa than in an apartment.
How do you eliminate the urine of the cat?
But no matter how adorable our bloody and fluffy creature is, we get angry when they “forget” where the toilet is and it’s doing its “chores” elsewhere. Many feel that the urine of the cat’s urine is very hard to remove. Moreover, sometimes their toilet becomes unbearable.
If you use sand or other similar material, then change it once a day, and if you have a “hot” tomcat, then at least twice a day – in the morning and in the evening. But if you use a simple toilet without anything else, then the most recommended toilet is to use plenty of water to remove odor. It is recommended to rinse two to three times a day.
In the case of the thresholds and stairs of the block, then it is best to help with washing with chlorine or bleach solutions. They can almost “kill” the smell of cat urine. But caution is that chlorine is only used in open spaces, not enclosed as an apartment or room because of its active substances it can seriously damage the health of both the cat and the human.
Moreover, if the smell of chlorine is harmful to all, the smell of perfume is most harmful to cats. We like the smell of deodorants, fragrances, and other flavoring sprays, but it has negative effects on cats. So it would be good to keep in mind that.
Returning to the smell of urine, in flats or other closed spaces where people live, the best solution would be potassium permanganate. Wash the “displacement” of the smell and see how the smell will disappear. Also, many housewives use iodine, making a solution of water and a few drops of iodine tincture.
In addition to these, the alcohol and hydrogen peroxide are very good. Spreading it around is a good neutralizer of virtually all the smells. It can also be replaced with vodka. Depending on the “power” of the smell, you will use a larger or smaller quantity of vodka. It usually mixes with water. Other housewives use vinegar. The concentration used with water is 1: 4. To eliminate the smell and the yellowish color on the floors, it’s great to get the handle of sodium bicarbonate.
If any of the above-mentioned tips you would not find more effective, find out that the best method is prevention. So you better educate your pet not to be naughty. This is possible because there is a lasting example where the cat has been taught to even use an umbrella. So the main factor that you need to take away is the education of the cat, and then the use of odor removal tips.
I wish you a good and obedient pet!
