The Amazing Longevity of Cat Pee

My mother has spent the better part of the last week and a half moving out of her apartment to my Grandmothers house. We moved into that apartment in December of 1990. The landlord, one of her co-workers, told us that the previous tenant had cats who had peed everywhere. He promised that he'd replace the carpets awhile after we moved in. This never happened. So my Mom has had the same carpets for over 19 years.

When we first moved in, the cat pee smell was noticable, but as the years went by, it became less and less until you could no longer smell it.

Until recently.

I went into her apartment Sunday afternoon to retrieve some of my things and was hit in the face with a blast of cat pee smell.

Who knew that cat pee was so potent that it could still stink up a place after 20 years? Yuck!

I hope the landlord finally replaces the carpets.
