My Yuko is a marshmallow fluff beauty of a cat blessed with dramatic almond-eyes and a curiously photogenic kitten-face. The pleasing exterior hides the heart... of a pisser! My roommate Marianne and I dubbed her the pissant when she randomly violated a couch and some area rugs. Bad kitty, you normally never stray from your box! Luckily a reader sent me an easy, all-natural remedy for pet odors:
I use this spray on everything. I combine 25 drops of my fave essential oil, 2 cups of water, 1 cup of peroxide, and 1 cup of vinegar into a spray bottle. I use it on the hardwood, the furniture, mirrors, anywhere. (Maybe not supposed to wash hardwood with peroxide but I do anyway.) I have four dogs so I have six bottles posted around the house for easy clean up. Love the stuff and I like finding cute bottles and making up gift batches. My favorite oils to use are eucalyptus and citron because they are the cheapest and still smell super.-Delaney, awesome Thrift Core reader, animal activist and puppy caretaker
I mixed my batch of odor remover/cleanser and it worked wonders on the violated areas and makes an excellent all-purpose cleanser, too. Give it a try around your house! Just add one cup peroxide, two cups water, one cup vinegar, 25 drops of essential oil, shake and spray!
Yuko, like most cats, is a crotchety sociopathic pissant (I have her sleep in my room every night now, that stopped accidents) but it's all worth it when you get to wake up to that! Yuko is the most hilariously awkward and clumsy cat I've ever known. I guess I'll keep her!
Any natural pet remedies to share? Do you have a pissant of your own?
