Pets are amazing and I truly admire pet owners! Although I love pets, I don’t have enough time to take care of them…and they require constant grooming, care and love.
During a recent visit to a friend, I saw this beautiful cat. It simply captivates me! Every time I pass her house, the cat jumps into my lap for some cuddling. However, as I was putting my shoes on and leaving the house, the odor of cat pee hit my nose and wet my socks. My friend was extremely embarrassed and I was completely socked. Yuri peed in my fancy leather shoes. I could smell jealousy in my shoes. Cats are extremely tricky animals. The one moment they are loving and adoring you, the next they are taking revenge on you for something that you’ve done wrong. It’s probably not a wise idea to kiss my friend goodbye!
In spite of not being upset, because it’s an animal, I had to come up with a solution to save my leather shoes. It’s my favorite pair, and I plan to wear them for a long time without any funny odors. That’s why I bought leather shoes in the first place!
Hence, you must engage in patience and hope in order to remove the cat pee smell from leather shoes. In the end, you’ll get rid of that pungent cat urine smell.
First things first!
◼ Sprinkle baking soda all over the shoes to absorb moisture. Don’t be greedy! You should let the baking soda act for about half an hour before tackling the vinegar.
◼ If your leather shoes still smell of cat urine, mix one part white vinegar with two parts warm water and a few drops of scented mouthwash. Use an old toothbrush or a cleaning cloth to rub the solution into the leather’s pores.
◼ Rinse the area with a clean cloth dampened in plain water.
◼ Repeat the baking soda and vinegar steps if necessary. I did!
◼ In order to dry the shoes, I thought that burying them in a pile of cat sand litter would do the trick. It did. Cat litter absorbs moisture, but also the pungent smell of vinegar mixed with cat pee.
