Company and pee! (rantish)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Let me start off with a description of the layout of my apartment....

I have 2 bedrooms, with 1 ajoining bathroom, I keep 1 litter box in the guest room, and 1 in the bathroom.

My company, rightfully so, slept with their bed room doors closed (one to hall, one to the bathroom) and I said to them, that the bathroom door that leads to my bedroom will need to stay open so teh kitties can get to at least one box. Sure easy enough, no problem. WELL someone went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and did not re-open my bedroom door....

At 7:30this AM I wake up to a warm sensation on my leg..... then I realize its a warm wet sensation.... I feel to figure out waht is going on, and then I relize Tonks is trying to cover something, like she does in the litter box... I smell my hand and sure enough, she had PEED ON ME IN MY BED!

At this time, I start to freak, then I look and notice that the bathroom door is closed, so of course I can't be mad at Tonks, she was just letting me know that well, she had to pee and couldn't get to her box!

What makes this even worse is that my company didn't offer to help clean my bed, or my sheets and they didn't even say sorry! They just went about making coffee while I scrubbed my mattress!

I just needed to vent... thank you!

This isn't going to help but ( I apologise in advance) the mental image of you waking up to Tonks peeing on you makes me giggle.



That said.... I'd be peeved at the situation. An apology would have been the least they could do. I could see how they could forget to open the door but still, they need to be accountable for their actions.

I think was very rude of them to not say they were sorry. Sure it was an accident they left the door closed, but they could have appologized!

She's a smart kitty tho. Look at it this way, if she didn't pee ON you and wake you up, she might have had more than one pee outside the box at least this way she was able to assure herself access to her box.

Seriously tho, I'd be more than pissed (no pun intended) at the company not apologising or offering to help. That was quite rude of them

Sweetie, I think the lesson here is that the next time you have company, set the guest room litter box outside the door of the guest room during the night, and pull the litter box in the bathroom into your bedroom during the stay.

I'm sorry they didn't even say anything! Hope you don't have to invite them back!

Sorry, but me too. I am all to familiar with what it feels like to be woken from a sound sleep by pee. My girl Amber is famous for that

I agree with Laurie. Ok they should have apologised, but when your half asleep and in someone elses house?

Oh well, live and learn

Yes!

While it may have been an accident for your guests to forget, it would have been more than polite for them to apologize. If I was your friend, I would have been horrified at my mistake and apologized all day. But I love cats and their needs mean a lot to me so that could be part of it....

Everyone else is right though, the image is pretty darn funny.

You MUST MUST MUST use an enzyme cleaner. !!!!!!!!!!!! This is the ONLY thing that will get rid of the smell to the kitties! The one most readily available most places is Nature's Miracle. It works, but it's not best. It can be added to your wash, and if any of the mattress got pee in it, you must COMPLETELY soak the area with the enzyme cleaner. Lay a folded over towel over it and make the bed - change the towel every day. But you soak the area, let it sit for 10 - 15 minutes, blot up the excess, and you HAVE to let it air dry. No cheating and using a hair dryer or something, it makes it not work right.

I actually got Natures Miracle already, took the top of the mattress off, soaked it, and layed it outside in the sun all day... it helped but it still smells to me! SOOOOOOO I stripped my bed AGAIN this morning and did the same thing, minus the outside drying, so we'll see. They kitties were deffinatly paying extra attention to the spot last nigh, ugh! luckily, no accidents

2 cups hydrogen peroxide
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 drops liquid dish soap

Mix and soak the smelly area and allow to dry. Your problems will be solved.

Enzyme cleaners are a big waste of money, IMO. Any enzymes that may have been active during manufacturing quickly die and are ineffective.

Awww......... it was just a joke about the amount of pee. I didn't mean to offend! And we LOVE your bobcats! (Of course we're still waiting - pretty patiently, for the most part, I might add! - for current pictures!) ...And, of course, we're happy that you're willing to put up with Amber peeing on you!

I keep losing the formula, so thank you for posting! And you may be right about the enzyme cleaners. I know Nature's Miracle pretty much sucks and usually needs to be applied at least several times. We use Nok Out, but you're right, it is expensive. It also works well.

I should update, that w/ the 2nd application, and it drying in a dark room all day with the AC going and a celing fan, I can no longer detect any smell... and the kitties seem to have lost interest! YEY!!! The true test is how much sniffing goes on when we go to bed tonight!

Well, I wasn't offended in any way, I understood what you meant As for the pictures, the whole thread with all my pictures may be dead, due to the image hosting site possibly being hacked with malware. Anne took then down for now, even my signature, due to this situation. I will being setting up a Photobucket account so I can post pictures again.
