Both the lips and the petal's smoothness are very well rendered and blended together by that blurry yet delicately spotty texture, almo...

  • Mood: Gloomy
... We are facing a recurrent problem with our male, fixed, and formerly stray cat.
When we would move, he'd always be stressed during the first monthes in the new house. And during these first monthes, he would be perfectly clean...
But as time would go by and he would grow used to his new home, he would start, well, marking territory.
With pee.
Everywhere :dead:
2nd time we switch houses with him. And 2nd time it happens.

Closets, plinths, couches, armchairs, beds, curtains... and carpets. Nothing is spared. Except things hanging on walls and out of reach for him.

In a twisted way, it's positive because it's sign he feels relaxed around the house. It's good to know our cat is happy with living with us.
But for us... It's sad to say, but sometimes we would prefer that he did not feel so much "at home". For the sake of house's furniture. And for the sake of our sanity.

It was still manageable when we lived in modern houses, with PVC, synthetic floors than can be cleaned easily (Although, when he pees on carpets it makes no difference whether the floor below is easy to clean or not :dead:)
But now we're living in an old, 30's dated house, with 3 levels and wood battens floors at every level.
And cat pee not only burns the battens' wood, but also sneaks between the battens. Where no cleaning stuff can follow...
So the smell slooooooowly settles in.

Ah, yes: as soon as we clean, he pees again at same place, or close by. Sometimes while we're in eye range, staring at us square in the eyes...
I love my cat, but seriously, I could strangle him when he has that @$$h0£€ attitude.

And of course, it doesn't stop when we're asleep. Cleaning dried cat pee before even having breakfast at mornings is becoming the norm...

We don't dare using pheromones or anxiolytics, because it's supposed to make him relax and feel comfortable around the house, and well, we know he does this *only* once he feels home...
And old wooden floor doesn't quite tolerate the radical "cat-repulsive" solutions like lemon juice or vinegar that we used in our former homes...

Help, please.
