Cats can make very clean pets, and they tend to require less time for washing and grooming than other animals since they take care of this job on their own. But cats, although tidy, may not always go to the bathroom where you want them to. They might miss the litter box, or decide that they would rather use your carpet, your couch, or your bed.

Cat urine has a very strong odor, and even after it has been cleaned the scent can still linger in your home. In order to remove this cat urine smell, you must use certain methods to clean the mess the cat left behind.
