First off let me say there are no UTI issues,all 5 cats are healthy,and<br><br>
I change the cat boxes daily.<br><br>
I found a puddle of pee on one of the burners of my electric stove this<br><br>
morning.It leaked all over the underparts and took forever to clean.<br><br>
Not only that but some little kitty got into the lower cabinets and did<br><br>
the same thing.<br><br>
I took everything out, cleaned as best as I could and used an<br><br>
enzyme product which is supposedly specifically for cat urine.<br><br>
The smell on the stove is better, but for some reason, I can't seem<br><br>
to get the smell out of the cabinet.<br><br>
I'm pretty sure of which kitty caused the mess. One of the younger<br><br>
cats loves to bother the oldest one who is very shy and freaks out<br><br>
when this happens. She sleeps on top of the fridge and probably really<br><br>
had to go but was afraid to leave the kitchen.OR Maybe she was acting<br><br>
out.<br><br>
ANYWAY- I would greatly appreciate any ideas as to how to get rid of<br><br>
the smell.<br><br>
This is really grossing me out.

I don't have any ideas other than to continue applying the enzymatic cleaner. Sometimes repeated applications do the trick.

Baking soda often removes smells, too, and possible less expensively.

Yeah, I tried it,but kitty pee is pretty potent. Didn't work.<br><br>
Thanks for the suggestion though.

I guess a couple cups of water, + about a tbl spoon of baking soda w/ a few drops of lemon juice gets rid of the smell and kills the amonia.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: If your cabinets have absorbed the urine directly into the wood (such as if the wood is porus and not sealed), I'd clean it at least a few times, then apply KILLZ. (found at many home stores, wal-marts, etc...) Then add a fresh coat of paint and/or sealant.

a product called anti-icky poo is the one I've found to be far superior to most products. It does not require that the surface remain soaked for a certain length of time- it continues to work even if dry. It uses special bacteria which multiply and eat the stink instead of just enzymes. It can be hard to find in stores, I recommend ordering online.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.antiickypoo.com/c-antiickypoo.html" target="_blank">http://www.antiickypoo.com/c-antiickypoo.html</a>

Thanks for the tips. I think the antiickypoo (the name cracks me up)<br><br>
and KILLZ just might do the trick.<br><br>
AND making sure Grandma Kitty has access the cat box at all times.

if this is a normal thing, you may want to consider getting her some Feliway. It's a synthetic pheremone. Either a diffuser or spray it where you don't want her to eliminate. It may help her anxiety about the other kitties.

Feliway may not work in this situation. It helps best in situations where cats are spraying, although it is worth a shot.<br><br><br><br>
Another thing to try would be to add a few drops of rescue remedy or five flowers formula to the cats' water dishes. It should help calm down the stressed out kitty.

My mom had this problem with her kitty a while ago and found that the cleaners they sell at medical supply stores for bedpans worked much better than anything from a pet care store. (I wish I could tell you how she got him to stop peeing around, too, but it seems like he just got tired of it.)

I feel so much better now!! All I did was a google search for "cat pee on stove" and wow did I ever come up with ALOT of links/posts!!<br><br><br><br>
After reading all the various ways and places that cats have peed, I feel so much better that I am not the only one with this problem.<br><br><br><br>
I have 5 cats. And as many litters. Yes I am very busy taking care of them. Three of my cats are outdoor cats, but they do come inside. They are NOT my problem children!!!<br><br><br><br>
One of my indoor cats is. I know it's him. I have caught him once or twice, so I know it is. He has urinated on my countertop, in bowls left on the table/counters, on plastic bags, on the stovetop (in the burners - what a terrible smell when turned on by unsuspecting humans) and he has defecated in the tub and bathroom sink. Just about everywhere BUT the litterbox.<br><br><br><br>
I have tried different litters. I even have three different types of litter on the go at once. I have tried the litter boxes in all the same place, and in different places. I now have three on one floor and two on the other floor, of my two story house.<br><br><br><br>
Still he insists on doing "his business" everywhere but the litterbox.<br><br><br><br>
I have used bleach and vinegar to clean the spots. It helps for a bit, but he just moves onto the next spot. Eventually he makes his way back to his original favorite spots. I feel as if I am running in circles and he is the puppetmaster.<br><br><br><br>
Frustrated, you bet!!<br><br><br><br>
But he is the sweetest, most affectionate cat I have ever had. He loves to snuggle with me at night, sleeping next to me with his head on me or my pillow. When I watch TV, I have to lift him off of my face so I can see the TV. He still thinks he is kitten-sized!! I can not move anywhere without him following me. It's just when he wonders off by himself that the trouble begins.<br><br><br><br>
I really don't want to put him down. It would break my heart. He gets along great with the other cats. He cuddles with them too.<br><br><br><br>
So what the heck is his problem??<br><br><br><br>
Oh, well, at least I am not alone in this world with this problem. I feel a bit better!!<br><br><br><br>
Good luck to everyone with similar issues!!

Whoah! Holy bumped old thread, Batman! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":surprised"><br><br><br><br>
So, Sally, did you ever get the smell of cat pee totally removed? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">
