My poor baby was an abused animal and I haven't the heart to get rid of him, he needs love and I can give him that. He wants to urinate everyplace but the cat box, tried every type of litter......but I have ceramic high gloss tile floors through out the house, he chooses corners and it gets into the base boards also. I've tried bleach, vinegar an mint oil, cat urine be gone products....nothing works...please help me!

    first of all make sure he's healthy--- a frequent cause of inappropriate urination is bladder stones/grit -- it HURTS when they attempt to urinate, and they associate the pain with the location -- so they move to another spot. Secondly, if he's not altered/neutered/de-sexed, what ever term you use, get it done. that may help reduce the incidence of 'marking' which is not the same as 'urinating/voiding the bladder'. Then make sure he's eating a species appropriate food -- the food a cat eats has much more to do with the urine/fecal odor than it does with dogs. Cats are obligate carnivores and need a meat based diet, preferably canned to increase his fluid intake.

      Thank you, yes I believe it is in the grout and base boards. Not sure what his history is but he was found with his collar rotting off and skin an bones. From day one it's been an issue, he will not eat unless you sit with him and put him in litter box to duty! If it's in grout an base boards, guess when he passes I will call in the Pros! Thanks for all your help...I shall try some of these suggestions,

    This product is also recommended for urine, fees, vomit, blood and odors -- not just from dogs/cats. IT's a bio-enzymatic product that work on the source of the odor, not trying to cover it up

    This is a disinfectant just for urine smells and pets. O d o ban. You can get it at home depot 3 dollars per spray bottle. Not a cover up cleaner.

    Good luck -- Hypothyroidism in cats is a real challenge - sounds like you in it for the long haul! You could go ahead and remove the baseboards now and just caulk the space that the base board hides - would get rid of a lot of the odor that way I think ..

    Try pouring kitty litter on it and letting it sit for a few days to soak up the smell. Afterward, apply a paste of lemon juice and baking soda and let that sit. Wipe up -- the smell should be substantially reduced, if not gone.

    I had a litter of puppies and they all liked the same corner any way when the puppies went to their new homes then we found out that their urine had gotten up in side the edge of wall and the frame. I took paper towels and packed the cracks and filled the towels with o d o ban and let it sit and dry. Once dry would give a day or two to see if the smell came back then I would do it until there were no more smells, probably 4 or 5 times.
