What is best for sealing in/covering up the smell of cat urine in wood?
I'm told that either sealer or varnish are best. But there are many
diiferent types to choose from at the store. Does anyone have
suggestions on what might be best? Obviously, the wood in question
can't be replaced. The only option is to try to cover or seal in the
If memory serves topic has been discussed in alt.home.repair and
several have suggested a product from a per store. One for cats and
another for dogs. Forgot the name, google would find it.
One thing about those odor removers, is that they usually require the
part to be soaked for hours, or even days while the bacterial action
that removes the smell takes place. By soaking, I mean placing something
like a damp towel over the treated spot. This may not work too well for
wood, depending on what the wood is for. If its something that shows, it
might affect the wood with swelling, cracking (after drying), etc.
OTOH, if its something like a floor thats going to be covered, then the
above suggestions, or even KILZ will work.

Yuck. Before you try any of the other suggestions, get some "Pet Odor
Eliminator" at the pet store. Active ingredient is urease. You want to get
rid of as much of the urine as you can before you try to cover it up. You
heard the song "The Cat Came Back?" Yeah, like that.

I wonder if an ozone generator would take care of that...
Also, next time, make sure the cat is already dead before using it as
a push stick. They scare easily around machinery, hence the stain.
In the off chance you're not already using the cat as a push stick,
now might be the time. <eg>
Shellac might do it. Have you tried wash most of it out with hot
water and soap, too?
