Urine-marking can indicate some hard-to-handle stresses in a cat's life. It can also indicate medical problems. This undesirable and troubled behavior is probably the most common cause for cats urinating outside of the litter box. It is also the #1 reason cats are surrendered to shelters and pounds, which often results in their untimely demise.
Regardless of the cause, cat owners have to deal with the smell. And once cats "go" in one area, they will often go again, and again, and again. With the warm weather and humidity, pet owners can really notice some urine areas that were previously not as noticeable.
Over the years, I've tried most all of the products in the market today and have been disappointed (most of them just don't work as promised).It has taken me years, but I've finally found a product that works on cat urine odors. I've tested it in a variety of situations including on clothing, carpet, hardwood and vinyl flooring. Zero Odor has worked the best for me.
Many of our readers say they've tried everything to remove certain cat odors with mixed results.
I was very happy to find an odor control product that really works! It's called Zero Odor. Not many people have heard of it (it is a well-kept secret). Zero Odor works by "bonding" to the odor molecules and changing them into molecules that no longer cause odor. We've tested it on some VERY tough odor problems and we were truly amazed by at how well it worked. This is unlike any other product we've ever seen.
I love this stuff. I have used it in many difficult situations – including cat urine in carpets, on sofas, on hardwood floors, on a screened-in porch and more – and had great success. I've recommended it to clients for years and it works!
We have hundreds of testimonials from cat lovers like Christine.

Dr. Debra –
As a multi-cat owner for many years, I have tried several different products to eliminate pet odors, with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, one of my cats has recently taken to marking different areas of the house, so when heard about Zero Odor, I thought it was worth a try.
I have been using it now for about one month and I am very pleased with the results. It seems to work quicker than the other well-known product I have been using (Nature's Miracle) and it eliminates most, if not all, of the cat urine odor I have had to contend with. I like the smell of the product – it has a clean, light, almost bleach-like odor when you spray it on, but it doesn't linger too long. I have been recommending it to my friends with pets and even left a sample out for my dog walker to try.
Thanks for recommending a great product.

I really need this pet odor product. I am ready to rip up my wall-to-wall carpet. We have tried everything from soaking the carpet in vinegar, ammonia, carpet cleaning product and even peeling back the carpet and replacing the wood and the padding in the offensive section.
What happened is we had a cat with chronic urinary infections who could not always make it to the litter box, so she chose a spot right under the dining room table. The cat died 2 years ago and after rigorous cleaning the smell subsided except in the humidity.
We now have 2 dogs and one of them favors this same spot to urinate on occasion and the smell has become overwhelming. We would welcome the trial of this product to help us eliminate the returning odor.
If it was in a corner or a hidden part of the room, we could take it up and replace it with some of the remnant we have left but since it is right smack in the middle under the dining room table, that would be impossible.

We thought Marianne had a bad problem and so we sent her some Zero Odor to test.

Dr. Debra –
As I mentioned before our one dog was urinating in the dining room. We tried everything from soaking the carpet in vinegar, ammonia, carpet cleaning product. Zero Odor REALLY seems to work best. It has been 2 weeks and the dogs have not chosen that spot to relieve themselves any more. We can now use the dining room to eat and have no offensive odor. Thank you so much!
