    When I first got my kitten she peed on the carpet a few times and I bought No Vac from the supermarket. It s the one for pets which says: neutralises pet odours. When you spray it on it s foamy and then goes into the carpet and takes away the smell.. has worked perfectly well for me :)

    Thought I'd wandered into a different forum but then realised we're in the Coffee House where anything goes. Just can't get my head round why someone would come onto a NZ immigration forum and ask about cat wee.

    A chemical-free option I've read about is to use vinegar although I don't know how it would work on old, dried stains. One of our cats suffers from fits and wees during her fit so we have a lot of experience of cleaning up after her. Luckily our floors are marble here although she does land on a rug or two now and then. I've often used vinegar, which is supposed to neutralise cat urine smells. The smell seems to linger for a little while but then disappears, unless I just get used to it, which is a worry . I haven't quite gone to the lengths mentioned below though.

    Home Remedy for cat urine smell. This is a great recipe for removing cat urine odor from carpet. Start by blotting up as much of the urine as possible with old rags or paper towels. Next mix 3 parts water with one part vinegar and saturate the spot.Dry thoroughly using the same method mentioned above. Once dry, sprinkle the area with Baking Soda. Next mix ĺ cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with one tsp. dish detergent and sprinkle over the Baking Soda. Try this first on a small inconspicuous area of the carpet to make sure the hydrogen peroxide wonít discolor your carpet. Next, use your fingers or an old brush to work the Baking Soda in. Iíve used an old hairbrush with little bits of plastic over the tips with good results. Allow this to dry and vacuum it up. If thereís still a slight odor when done, lather, rinse and repeat.

    From here.

    Another site saying more or less the same.

    I don't know if there's a NZ equivalent, but in the States I get a product called Nature's Miracle. An internet search might find something for you. It uses enzymes to break down the urine so it doesn't smell. I think it's also good for other pet odors. I've had good luck with it, though deep, old smells in carpet won't go away completely. Good luck!
