What does cat urine on carpet even smell like? I found a damp spot at the edge of the wall near the door that leads to our patio, and to me it smells like a mix of mildew and urine. My husband and mom both say that it smells like cat urine.
If one of the cats is peeing, it's probably our female because the male tends to spray in his litter box. So if it was him, I figured I'd see it on the wall. We recently adopted the male, about four months ago actually, and about three weeks ago we had the carpet in the entire house replaced because we're trying to sell it.
I've never had a problem with her peeing on the floor, and I'm still not convinced that that's even what the smell is. It doesn't smell like "typical" cat urine to me. It doesn't have that strong ammonia smell. Unless.....does it smell different on different surfaces??? I really am not fond of the idea of one or both of the cats peeing on brand-new carpet when we're trying to sell the place. I have enough stress as it is!
But yeah, does that sound like urine to you, or a leak coming in from somewhere and mildewing?
