OT: Cat Pee

Page 1 of 3  
Short story ... Cat pee'd in my hockey bag.
What's the best way to get the smell out of the equipment? Is it even possible?
Thanks,
Larry

Stores like Petco sell some sort of enzyme based product that some people have found successful. However, if the piss has permeated into seams and padding, you may never get rid of the stink.
By the way, bitch-slap that cat and tell it to stop acting like a friggin' dog.

Wash a couple times. Use white vinegar in the wash water. Dry in the sunshine, if possible. I've tried enzyme-based products for this kind of thing before, without much luck.

Soak the pissed area in that enzyme stuff then toss it in the washer if it is washable.

Is the cat neutered? Whacking his nuts off might make him stop peeing on things. Use a dull knife.
Was the cat's little box kept clean? It might have been too dirty to use, so the stinky gym bag looked like a good replacement.
I've heard that vinegar and baking soda can help in the washing machine. A cup of each. Soak it first, then throw it in the washer on HOT, rinse, repeat. Hell, toss the cat in too.
If one of MY cats did that, they would get a bullet between the eyes. my cats go out in the woods though, never use a litter box.

That cat was sending Larry a message, kind of like the horse head in the first Godfather movie. Larry better figure out what's up, and quick.

I think you're exactly right. Unless it's an unruly cat, they usually do that sort of thing to express their displeasure.

On the contrary, whenever we've had a cat pee in an inappropriate place, the cat was trying to tell us it had a physical problem, and in nearly every case the vet found a bladder infection complete with high white cell count, bacteria in the urine and all.
The exception was Rocky, who we discovered was trying very hard to get attention from one of the two of us for a while before giving up and leaving us a "present". Once we figured out the solution was five seconds of attention, we never found another piddle puddle.

So, your comment is that the cat has a bladder problem, or the cat is trying to get your attention? What if the OPs cat does not have a bladder problem???????????

First, check with the vet.

I think this response was supposed to be for clifto. My cat 'Puss' does not have a bladder problem, and if he wants my attention, he follows me all around and continually meows until I give him what he wants.

he probably forgot to clean the cat's litter box,or the food dish was empty.
OR,he did something to the cat,and this was the cat's revenge.

Actually, not quite so. My guess would be the bag was made of some sort of vinyl or plastic. Cats are often drawn to the smell of these kinds of materials, and it's very common for cats to urinate on them (even neutered male cats). I don't know if on a cat's level they smell like another cat or what the situation is, but I do know it's a not-uncommon occurrence. Also, it's very common for cats to be attracted to musky smells, e.g., sweaty hockey jersey, dirty socks, et al, and, again, to want to over-mark them.
Cats don't think in terms of "My bowl is empty, pissing in this guy's gym bag would send a message about that." More like, "My bowl is empty, waking this guy up at 3 a.m. to ask for food would be a good idea." Peeing in the hockey bag likely was either "My box is unusable and this raunchy bag needs a new smell anyway." or "My owner's bag smells like Cat X and I want to re-mark it with my own smell to show Cat X whose owner this is."

Got a message once. Cat (neutered) I had it for a decade and never went in an improper place. Suddenly went in a chair. I'm baffled. Day or two later same thing.
Off to the vet. Result - Cystitis (urinary problem). Resolved the medical issue. Cat went on to expire of old age with no more "improper place" events.

If not, owners own damn fault. It's not a matter of pissing. All unneutered males mark. Their nature and instinct. Once neutered, they will even hold it until they can get outside vs. a litter box, gym bag, tool box, whatever.

Said feline is female, spayed, well fed and watered. Litter box is clean. This is an indoor cat. However all this doesn't really answer my initial question of how to get rid of the odor ... Any ideas on that?
