Remember me? I'm the bride who needed support walking down the aisle without my dad. Well your advice helped and the wedding was wonderful. Our honeymoon was amazing and we are back and ready to tackle the world.
We recently bought an apartment and are moving in this coming weekend. There is just one problem. We went by the place today to show my mom. And it smells like cat pee! The woman who is moving out has two cats and though the apartment is in good shape otherwise, the entryway and the kitchen smell so bad that it nearly makes your eyes tear. It did not smell that way when we looked at it in April. We think it might be because the old owner is moving and kicking up all the old smells.
We don't have much time and we need to disinfect!! Help me bubby!!
Thanks for your help!
Mr. and Mrs. Smelly Cat
Dear Mr & Mrs. Smelly Cat,
Congratulation on your marriage. Be happy and healthy forever after. Now about that cat. I think it is true when the apartment was being torn up all these bad smells became active, but not for long. First you should go out and buy some deodorant for cats. It is also good to ask a vet what is good to use.
Also if you are going to have the place painted, the smell will disappear. Your floors should be washed using a good detergent. If it has a floor covering - throw it out. A bare floor is better than a smelly one. Put a pine disinfectant in the closet because cats do like to crawl into closets. Keep the windows open and air out the apartment as much as possible. Without the cat and all your disinfectants and soap and water in a short time there will be no odors.
The other people were so into the cat and its odors they were not aware of how bad it was. However, that does not mean that you have to do the same. A good cleaning as I suggest should take care of it.
Let me know how it works out.
