Stubborn cat

For some bizarre and unknowable reason, last night the cat peed in a random box in the kitchen. He's never done this before, always using the catboxes and ignoring the random packing boxes lying about. It was almost as though he was protesting some smell in this particular box.

But just in case, we watched him carefully last night and I'm keeping an eye on him today. I really want to make sure he's not sick before concluding that this is some wonky behavioral thing or a random bad smell in a box. Fortunately, he's not showing any signs of distress other than the one random peeing incident. I really hope that he was just being a butt and didn't like the smell of that box. In fact, I can hear him upstairs, using the catbox now. The one thing I'm really worried about is getting rid of the smell on the wood floor.

huh!? that's odd. I have no advice about the floor. Though I did want to say that the photo of your home with the new paint is awesome. I think I forgot to say that when I say your post.

Yeah, I think he was just being a pill. Making his feelings about the catbox situation known. It seems he likes the small one. Of course.

"Nature's Miracle", which you can find at Petco or maybe Home Depot, works great as far as getting animal smells out of darn near everything. And it's not nearly as caustic as, say, bleach.

I used vinegar because it was an emergency. So far, no lingering smell. And no repeats, thank goodness. But I'm definitely going to look for that stuff next time I'm near a place that could sell it.

Petsmart definitely has it - I noticed it just Saturday when we were browsing. But yeah, it's a good one to have on hand for cleanup of various unpleasantness.
