How do I get cat urine smell out of the rug?

My cat suffered from acute Renal failure. She started peeing on the rug, I have cleaned the rug repeatedly, but every once in a while you get a faint smell of cat urine.. Ewww... This is one of the few things that can turn my stomach... I have tried woolite, spot shot and resolve spot cleaners and carpet cleaners. This smell needs to go away!!!

  • I don't know a lot about this, but my sister had a similar problem. She found this web and it worked for her. She tried one of the products, I don't remember which one. I think it was one called Urine Out or something similar. I will check with her and let you know, because that product really work for her.

    Hope it helps

  • Department stores like Target or pet stores sell stain/odor cleaning products. Any of them should work. They usually contain proactive bacterial enzymes that remove the hormones that urine contains and is scented so that the cat doesn't smell where they've gone before and try to go there again. You should allow the product to soak for at least 2-3 minutes for it to work well before blotting/rubbing it. Some bottles say to allow the product to dry naturally without blotting so follow whatever they say. Some products I've used are below:|Stain+%26+Odor
