What is the best Carpet cleaner for cats throwing up on carpet. I heard that they need enzymes to really help get the smell out? I currently use some grocery store brand carpet cleaner, it doesnt really work that well. Any ideas on whats good?

Thanks :!:

Revival Animal Health sells a product called Equalizer. You spray it on, let it soak in and blot it up. Very easy to use and has a pleasant smell. It is meant to remove any pet fecal odors.

I've also heard good things about a product called "Nature's Miracle". It is a cleaner that removes the enzymes that take the smell away and hopefully discourage the kitty from doing anything in that area again, whether it's throw up again, or pee on it to cover the smell of the vomit...

Best thing for cat puke/pee is a mixture of 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, 1 tablespoom baking soda and 1 drop liquid hand soap. Mix weel and use immediatley. Let sit for about 20 minutes then blot.

Test for color fastness.

My cat has completely stopped using her litterbox and just pees in the middle of the hardwood floors. I keep cleaning it up with Natures Miracle and Wood cleaner. I don't know what else to use. Any suggestions?

We are using a Feliway diffuser in that room, as well as Rescue Remedy in her drinking water.

Has your cat seen a vet to rule out any health issues like a Urinary Tract Infection? Alot of times when they have that cats will use the restroom everywhere but there litterbox. <<))

Now don't laugh, this IS wonderful stuff! I can't tell you the different things I have tried and the smell would always return. The name is "Anti Icky Poo" It is may by Mistermax you can order it online and it is absolute satisfaction guarantee or money back. I am highly satisfied but felt funny when I called in the order " ahhhhhhhh, yes I would like some Anti icky poo, that is the name right?" :D They are extremely helpful should you call in your order and very willing to explain how and why this cleaner Is so different from many! Hope this helps!

I use Nature's Miracle on carpet with lots of success, but we also use a brand called Foley's. Here is the Northwest we buy it at Fred Myer. I'm not sure where else they sell it. It is similar to Nature's Miracle.

Lillitth, just make sure your cat doesn't have a UTI. Cat's don't *like* to be messy, and oftentimes if they are having accidents in obvious places, its because something is wrong with their insides, they don't like their litter, or their litterbox isn't clean enough. How often do you scoop, what kind of litter do you use, and has your kitty been checked for problems?

I have an appointmet this weekend with the vet. Although as I said before, she has had these behavior problems in the past and has always checked out just fine. It's just much worse all of a sudden. It's the same old litter I have used for years, scoopable Tidy Cat. I clean the box twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening.

We had a good night last night by the way. She hadn't peed or pooped on the floor when I let her out this morning. Yaaay!

I am worried about cleaning the urine from the hardwood floors. I mop it up and use Nature's Miracle then Wood cleaner, but I have no idea if the odor is coming out. I am used to dealing with carpets!

It looks like your best bet is the litter then -- if she's had the behavior problems before and has used the same litter as before...that could be it. Some cats do not like scented litter at all. You might want to try switching the litter to an unscented scoopable or an unscented clay litter. The scent or the texture can put cats off. It could also be the type of litter box. Some cats do not like the covered kind because it is stinkier for them and there is less room -- they really need to crouch. Think about what she is liking so much about the hardwood floors and try to duplicate it in your litterbox. Perhaps don't put any litter in, or use only a thin layer. There are lots of things you could try -- kitties don't really pee on the floor just to make mess, they like to be clean.

I have read that some cats do not like their litter too deep.
If kitty likes peeing on the hardwood floor...I would also try shallow litter for a couple days and see if she likes it better...you know so her feet dont sink down.
I would also offer her 2 litter boxes, larger ones!
Bosco has had some spraying issues...so I have been through this!
He insist on 2 boxes...he urinates in 1 and poops in the other!
I have large boxes...if they are standard in size or covered he will begin spraying. He will also pee right over the edges. (bad aim) 8O

I use Simple Solution Cat Stain Remover and Deodorizer, which is in a spray bottle form, and is available at Petco. It works really well, and like Nature's Miracle, relies on enzymes to permanently destroy any lingering odors.

I went to the petstore a while ago looking for some more Nature's Miracle, and apparently they changed the name to Petastic...that's what they sales lady told me when I said I couldn't find the Nature's Miracle. ???
