- When a cat suddenly starts peeing outside the litter box, the first order of business is to find out why. It could be that your cat doesn’t like the type or location of his litter box, or the litter. He could also have a medical condition, so it’s important before you do anything else to get your pet evaluated by your veterinarian.
- The next thing you need to do is get rid of kitty urine odors in your home so your cat won’t return to those spots and pee. A black light can be very useful in locating all the urine spots you’ll need to treat.
- If your cat has soiled hard surfaces like wood flooring or baseboards, you can probably use a natural cleaner to remove stains and odors. But for urine marks on carpets or other absorbent materials, you’ll need a special enzyme-based cleaner like Nature’s Miracle or Urine Off.
- It’s important to clean dried urine spots on carpet or upholstery in a step-by-step manner that allows for complete resolution of both stains and smells. Prepare to re-treat older spots, never use a traditional carpet or upholstery cleaner on a pet stain, and resist the urge to scrub a stain, as this can destroy the texture of your carpet or rug.
