    Help! This morning, my cat...the darling little putz...knocked over my quilting hoop and peed on the quilt I am making for my step-sister's first baby. DH caught it pretty quickly and has blotted it up and used Nature's Miracle Orange Oxy-Power...but darling kitty has a very pungent pee...think skunk crossed with fresh cut juniper. Since it appears that MANY of us have cats, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions? The quilt in question is the one in my picture. I appreciate any help!

    How close are you to finishing it? After it is done I'm sure a washing will take out the smell.

    The cat peed on my DH in my pickup about 5 yrs ago...we scrubbed and extracted 2 or 3 times with enzymatics...you can still smell it on a hot day. (In the truck that is...not on DH! *laugh*)

    Follow the directions on the Nature's Miracle - soak the spot (I mean really get it wet), then let it dry on its own.

    You can also try vinegar, but I haven't had a ton of success with that.

    Oh man, good luck. I feel your pain.

    BTW, where did she get it? Is it in a spot you can remove and replace easily?

    Ok, I asked my husband and he said to wash it in vinegar water. He said to use the red vinegar. He also said if you boil vinegar in water on the stove, it will take smells out of the house.

    It appears to be just one corner but it is all the way through batting and backing and top. *Grrr* (Repeat after me...I love my cat, I love my cat, I love my cat!) No handmade felt catnip mousies for him for christmas!

    Oh wow. How far are you from being finished?

    If you are almost done and can stand the smell, I'd finish it then wash it. You might try Febreze to keep the odor down.
