Good Luck Penny!

Pumpkin's Momma here: As some of you might remember, Penny was a bad kitty last October when she started marking the couch and loveseat cushions when she went into heat the week before her scheduled spay surgery. Even AFTER being spayed, she continued to pee on the cushions. We thought it might be because we couldn't get the smell completely out of the cushions since the urine had soaked in so Dad finally broke down and gave in to Mom's request for new furniture and we bought a new love seat and sofa bed. All went well for a few weeks until the day we found wet cushions on the love seat. After Penny peed on the sofa bed cushions three days later, we sadly decided that we had to rehome Penny.

I took her to the Hawaiian Humane Society on New Year's Eve and left her there on a consignment basis. If they couldn't find a home for her after 10 days, they'd call me and I could reclaim her. I'm happy to report that she was adopted last week! I hope her new family loves her as much as we did and spoils her rotten. GOOD LUCK, PENNY!

P.S. I took the cushion covers to the dry cleaners but they came back still smelling like cat urine! I sprayed the covers with Simple Solution Cat Stain & Odor Remover and it worked wonderfully. No more smells. And we haven't had a problem since then so it WAS Penny who was the culprit.

Did you all ever have her tested for urinary tract issues?

I hope Penny has a very long, happy life with her forever family.

I've found that diluted white vinegar works wonders for pet odors all over the house. White vinegar and baking soda clean very well together so that may be something to try for the cushions.

Good luck!
