At the end of a somewhat short rope with cat pee. I have an 8’x10’ rug that was peed on by one of our 4 cats. I went to town with the Resolve Pet cleaner, but apparently they could still smell it and peed there again. We pulled the rug outside and shampooed it and let it dry for a month. They peed on it again. I cleaned it again and COATED the area in 3 boxes of baking soda and left that there for 24 hours, then vacuumed it up (huge mess). Another pee.
Around here it costs $400+ to have the rug professionally shampooed. Is it worth doing - will the cats still smell it and find it a great place to pee? The rug cost about $600 4 years ago if I recall? Maybe a bit more?
(Cats have been to vet: one was found to have struvite crystals and she is on gabapentin and prozac and an rx diet… we hope that fixes her up!)
