Cat pee'd in my bag, now what?!

Patrick F , Apr 11, 2009; 01:34 a.m.

Helllo all! Recently my cat decided that due to the fact that I had not cleaned out her litter box, my tripod bag would make a nice substitute. I have tried to use pet stain/odor eliminator but it does not seem to be working. Any suggestions? I would sure hate to have to throw out a very expensive tripod bag over this, but nothing seems to be working. HELP!

Pet stain removers with enzymes, found in pet stores. Use liberally as per directions, rinse and repeat as needed.

My cat lenses have never leaked -- was it a light leak? Is yours under warranty? ;-)

Seriously, vinegar (acid) and enzymes http://www.shoutitout.com/ might help.

1. Empty the litter box.
2. Donate the cat and the bag to charity
3. Get a dog.

Seriously - I've never found anything that completely masked or eliminated cat urine odors, which is why I refuse to have one.

Put cat in bag with four bricks. Place under water in fast flowing river for two weeks.
After two weeks recover bag and hang out to dry. Bag should be fine and no further problems.

Pet stores have solutions to this problem. Clean litterbox as often as you should, your cat probably saw it as a cleaner alternate, not as a way to get even with you. Store bag off the ground from now on.

Get a new bag and shoot the cat - while you are at it, you can shoot both of mine!

Have your cat stuffed standing, screw a 1/4" tripod screw mount on it, and **whalah*** a new quadpod!

Have you tried plain old baking soda? Spread it generously all over the bag, thickest on the peed on part, and let it sit for a day or two. Brush off and repeat if necessary. Febreeze is also good for odours. Is this bag washable? If so, just soak it for a couple hours with a bit of Tide. Rinse, gently squeeze out water, let dry.

Pet the cat and treat it nicely, maybe then he won't retaliate. Is it a male, unneutered? He trying to mark territory? Time for a neuter.
