Why is my cat peeing in my basement? WHY?! It smells like hell and I can’t get her to stop.
My sister tells me this is typical cat behavior. Being a pathetic pushover of the worst kind, she’s made the mistake of taking in a coworker’s cat. Not surprisingly, the owner has yet to retrieve it and it’s been almost a year. The topper is that this thing has peed on her carpet so much that her house smells like the stadium during a Lokomotive Leipzig soccer game.
Anyway, here’s my story.
Like a cat novice, I chucked a beanbag in the basement this summer so my 4-year-old and his friends could sit down there watching TV or talking about Euclidean geometry or what have you. But after a week or two, I started to notice big ol’ puddles of PEE on the chair.
I took the logical approach and blamed the children.
For a month, I kept demanding to know which one of them had peed on my beanbag chair. During the height of Popsicle season, I had several suspects to choose from, but my accusatory looks were usually directed at my 4-year-old who was still in diapers at the time.
“Any idea who peed on this?” I’d ask him. He’d just stand there.
In hindsight, I should have known it was Wonder Woman. The stuffing inside the beanbag obviously reminded her of her litter. I’ve since removed the chair, but she’s STILL doing it. I also put another litter box down there. STILL. DOING. IT.
Advice, please. Also, what’s the best product for getting the stink out?
