No, this is not the title of an Old Time song...I don't think.

And no, it was not the cat's fault, and therefore we should not tie it by its tail to the clothes line.

My wife took our sick kitty to the vet in its carrier, and apparently rounded a corner too fast, and the carrier rolled. That scared the pee out of the cat...a lot!

So, I tried a liberal soaking and wiping with special cat pee formula from pet shop, on the seat and on the carpet under seat. I don't believe its doing the de-stink cure.

What is your hack to remove cat pee smell? Brad

(I am considering, taking up smoking!)

If possible, I would remove whichever seat it was from the car and even try to take out the carpets. The best thing would be to soak it all in the enzyme stuff and then get it out in the open wind and sunlight.

If nothing you try seems to work, wait until January (when things tend to freeze up) and then sell the car to a guy with a really bad head-cold.

That is kind of like taking your pin vice drill with a itty-bitty bit, and punching out your check engine light, through the plastic.  I heard folks do that. ;-)  Brad

Right now I am keeping the windows open, while its so hot out.  Holding out some hope that after the stuff I soaked on there, wiped up a bit and fully dries, might help...then retreat.  Before, I have to do all the work you suggest. Which may iin fact be the only solution. thx, brad

We use the Bissell Pet Stain Formula for vomit and urine.

https://www.bissell.com/2x-pet-stainodor-carpet-cleaning-formula-32-oz-74r7

Works well.

We use it in their Little Green Portable Carpet Cleaner.

This is why, when I take the cat to the vet, I strap the seatbelt around the carrier.

Have you tried baking soda? Sprinkle it everywhere that got urine on it and let it sit overnight, then vacuum it up.

We’ve had good luck with Nature’s Miracle, but I don’t know how much better it is than any other enzyme cleaner. As other’s have suggested, get as much out of the car as you can and use carpet shampoo, and dry in the sun. There are lots of car detailing forums out there who would be happy to tell you what to do in excruciating detail.

Try Autopia.org, which is one of the biggest, and is full of helpful OCD types who really want your car to be spotless.

Spray Lysol. the brownian movement of molecules is taking over surfaces on your heater and air coil, Quick. Get it down into the fabric, so it changes the molecules, quickly, men.

I am a used car dealer(prius.store). When we get really bad seats, we remove them and power wash them.
Then we let them dry in the sun. (Fortunately, it is summer!)
We are usually dealing with coffee (I hope!) but have had some that had mouse smells. The power washer does the trick.
I have power washed carpets and then shop vacuumed the excess water before letting them dry in the sun for a couple days.
We do have a Bissell Green Machine which works reasonably well if we do not want to take the car apart.
The result is not near as thorough.

You might consider a dog as your next pet...

Just sayin'.

I once heard that you should spread lion muck on the affected area and the moggie will stay away

On an old episode of Car Talk, they talkeda about a similar problem. Somebody had found some kind of expensive cleaner/odor remover, and they found out it was mostly isopropyl [rubbing] alcohol.

You can't believe everything you hear on Car Talk, but I'd say it's worth a try to get a bottle of rubbing alcohol and give it try. I'd go for the stronger stuff and use it liberally.

I was bringing two little dogs home from the beach and one had a terrible accident in my truck cab. I was in bumper to bumper traffic on the Walt Whitman bridge.The dogs were so upset they tried to climb in my lap. I bought them home and shampooed both dogs. I cleaned the seats with Simple Green, a scrub brush and a shop vac, and repeated the process three times. I think I still smell it once in awhile.

Once you've cleaned as best as you can, you should try an ozone generator. I got one after I loaned my caravan (trailer?) to someone and they smoked in it. I was so mad that I was desperate to be able to still smell the smoke so I could rant some more, but in all honesty, it completely eradicated the odour.

We've successfully used: " biokleen Bac-Out stain + odor remover" on house carpet and on wood. This product has "live enzyme cultures and lime extract"....so don't use if you don't like lime fruit smell. But the lime does not last long (I think it's in there to discourage the cat from peeing in that place again).

I rolled our cat carrier once, but cat was too scared to pee, I guess. Seatbelting carrier is a good idea, if your car has long enough belts. Or you can use a rope through the carrier handle, with both ends of the rope tied to the secured seat belt, in effect lashing the carrier to the belt.

If you can't get it out enough for your nose, maybe an auto junk yard would have replacement seats at reasonable cost.

Best wishes for your success, Brad.
