  • Ok thanks I will. I spread the rug over railing out side to air but worried it won't lay on floor right after.

  • You won't believe this, but get cheap shaving cream. Spray it on the rug, then leave it set a few minutes and wipe it up. Repeat if necessary. The smell will go away, and cats won't go back to the spot.

  • It is an area rug? Take it to the car wash, and lay it down and wash the heck out of it! Make sure you rinse it really well and let it air dry outside, it will be heavy when you load it back in the car, so make sure you have some help!
