Just like other foul smells the cat urine odor is also something that lasts for much long and is very unhealthy and irritating for every human. The bad thing about it is when the cat urine happens to get on some cloth or any material you have, it does not get off very easily and the smell proliferates like anything. You need to be very careful with that because sometimes you don’t notice that your backpack or anything has been affected with cat urine until the smell starts coming off from it.
