- The best cleaners for cat urine that I’ve found are: Urine Off (vet recommended!), Nature’s Miracle (fragranced) and Anti-Icky Poo (fragranced or non-fragranced versions available).
- The above are all enzymatic cleaners, meaning they react to break down the smell-causing components of cat pee.
- Don’t use general cleaners like bleach or fragranced sprays. Not only are they toxic to cats, sometimes their smell can make the cat pee more where you use it.
There are a lot of negative stereotypes about cat owners. One common misconception which I find particularly upsetting is that all homes with cats stink of cat urine. Unfortunately, when you have a new kitten, some accidents outside the litter tray are unavoidable. When cats are older, bad habits can form. Especially if you don’t have an effective cat urine cleaner.
It’s a viscous circle. Once the cat pees in the wrong place once, that becomes his new toilet because of the lingering smell of cat urine. I know how frustrating it can be. We had this problem with our first cat. Don’t worry, I’m going to share how we overcame this problem.
