Darnit, we have a cat that was dumped on us two years ago,that we started feeding in the barn. Then last summer he got his paw crushed, and no one would come shoot him for us, nor would anyone put him down for a reasonable fee. We made sure he got food everyday and he was recovering. He eventually moved up to the porch and has made friends with the dog, sleeps with him on cold nights, etc. Well we had to put the dog inside recently for his own protection and the cat got left out in the cold, quite literally. We take sympathy on him now and again and let him in for short periods to "warm up" then back out he goes. Well last night was it. He peed. And our house is pretty cluttered, and its choatic. So we couldnt figure out WHERE he peed. Oh reason he never came in for long, is we are severely allergic, so 10 minutes usually was tops. Well I have done about 5 loads of wash, near where he normally sleeps, tryin to figure out where the smell was coming from. Let the little tiny peacock out of his box, and he happened to go back into a corner where we have some stuff piled. So I sat down to try to coax him to eat a treat and WHoaaaa! Smell SO bad I it was nauseating. Stupid cat peed on a bag of DE that I have to throw out, a whole box of vitamins that havent been opened but smell so bad I tossed them, cant stand the thought. I scrap of linoleum, a big piece of screen, our expensive swiffer steam cleaning mophead that I will try to save, and some clean rags that were in the corner (not so clean anymore) So I tossed all of it either outside or in the garbage and took that out and it STILL smells. He is male and definitely scent marked as well, its overpowering. No more sympathy for that animal, oh its awful. And too darned cold (windchill of 15) to open the windows. I am dying here... But thank you tiny peacock for letting me find where the stench is coming from. Even my dog jumped on his bed last night, sniffed and got back off! Its THAT bad!
