Liliane - you need a bottle of Nature's Miracle.  Its available at pet supply places, in the Clean Up aisle.  Use it like the package says - saturate the smelly spot, let it dry naturally.  If it dries in less than 6 hours you didn't use enough, try again. 

If the smell can be removed from your mattress and feather blanket Nature's Miracle is the product that will do it. 

It may leave a water mark.  Use any upholstery cleaner to get rid of that.

I've got a bottle, and it seems to be working on my mattress. The blanket's beyond repair - whoever made the mess dribbled all the way down the blanket and it's soaked into the feathers. I did want to get a proper blanket shell and better feathers, I guess now I have an excuse... *sigh*

Can you wash it with vinegar?

No. It's a full-size blanket and there's no laundromats with a washer big enough. Trust me, I've looked into every option, I really don't want to have to remake the blanket, but that's what has to happen. :-\

I still think Nature's Miracle can save the feather blanket.  They way I see it, that blanket is headed for the trash.  So try it.  The worst that can happen is that the blanket still goes to the trash.

I've already tried - it only made it smell even worse, actually, probably because the feathers got wet. It's alright, I really did need an excuse to get a proper blanket shell and better feathers.

(ETA: I have given it another soaking with Nature's Miracle and I'll let it sit overnight. Mutter grumble cats...)

Try taking it to the dry cleaners and ask if they can have it washed - you'd be surprised at how big the commercial washing machines are.

That's not a bad idea, I'm just afraid I'd be charged an arm and a leg (if they'd even take it) for 1: oversize item, and 2: cat pee smell. It's...pretty vile. I can smell it a good ten feet away...  :-\

Dear Beankitty,

Yes the male-person-who-is-not-Mama and I are trying for a baby.  I promise we do NOT need your advice (you're spayed and a kitty virgin, so far as I know) and that we have got this handled.  Sitting at the foot of the bed and watching the entire event is creepy.  Holding up scorecards is just unnecessary.

Love,
Mama-Bean

The real Midnight Kitty would wait until .03 seconds after we finished, then squeeze in between us so she could wallow in all that lovin' feeling. :-*

Dear Mike,

No, no, no, NO!!  I don't how you figured out how to open up the medicine cabinet.  It has the kind of latch that you have to push in at the bottom of the door and then pull the door out to open.

But you did and I found most of the contents in the bathroom sink/bathroom and I am currently missing tweezers, eyeliner pencil, a small tube of travel size toothpaste, hair ties and a bottle of Zantac.  Since it is me that is getting ulcers from your thievery, I would hope that you could at least return the bottle of Zantac.

Love,

Dear Mittens,

When I yell, "Mittens, get off the kitchen counter!" I mean, you, Mittens. 

There is nobody else in the house named Mittens.

Love,

Dear cats,

I'm glad you at least seem repentant for ruining my warm blanket, but really, I have plenty of blankets for situations such as this. I really don't need a cat on my feet, a cat on my head, and a cat trying to burrow into my side, just because I've had to layer thinner blankets instead of cocooning in a big puffy one.

It was quite comfortably warm, though.

With yawns,
the Not-Furry One, who really needs to go check on that warm blanket again.

Dear Dash,

I never thought I would be saying this, but thank you for throwing up politely.

Our dear departed Tigger used to hork while reversing around the living room so as to make the most mess possible. You, on the other hand, were kind enough this morning to stay in one spot so that I could get a piece of kitchen roll under you.

Just try not to eat the tinsel in future. It clearly doesn't agree with you.

Love,
she who provides the REAL cat food
