This is a photo of one very scared and confused kitty-cat hiding in my basement. Hans belongs to my grandsons, but he can’t live at their home anymore. One of the boys developed an allergic reaction to cat dander. They love their cat, and didn’t want to give him up completely, so now he lives at Nanny and Papa’s house.
Through all the confusion of the move, and after Hans hid under a guest room bed for over fourteen hours, the call of nature could not be denied and an accident happened on the good rug. Oh my! The smell of cat urine filled the room. Thankfully, I caught it right away and blotted it up. I immediately cleaned the carpet with rug shampoo, but the smell lingered.
I found a remedy on the Internet. Today I followed the directions. What an amazing solution. As soon as I poured on the peroxide and dish detergent over the baking soda, the smell completely disappeared. I also added a few drops of lavender essential oil I had in the house. Now the room smells fresh once more. This recipe really worked!

I am hoping that Hans will soon realize there is nothing to be afraid of at our house, and the next time you see a picture of him, he will be napping on a cushion or watching birds from inside the screened in porch.
He’s coming around a bit. Here he is sitting on the top of the basement stairs. I think soon he will begin to feel at home. I hope so!
