How to remove the smell of cat urine from leather
Questions Ask a Question Here are the questions asked by community members. We cleaned up our leather furniture as best we could and then put clear plastic shower curtains over the furniture anytime we were not sitting on it and some times just sat on the plastic ourselves rather than take it off and put it back on!

Multiple repeat offender cat. Now I'm going to try vinegar. Any step by step methods for these specific circumstances? I've only managed to find instructions for using vinegar on leather couches with cat urine odor that involve removing cushions or covers.
I don't mind the couch smelling like vinegar for a while, but not forever, and I don't want to mess this up. Any advice or experiences?
The couch has been through a lot but it's our first nice expensive-ish couch and I really don't want to have to replace it.
The first pee event was about 2 months ago. Now it has a strange smell that has evolved from cat pee and the various products we've used, which easily transfers onto anything that makes contact with it. The main spot is between the seat cushion and the back cushion. None of the cushions are removable, so to saturate this area we've either held it open and sprayed, or poured it on to soak entirely through so that it even drips out the back an attempt to simulate the path of the pee to make sure all parts were treated.
I wonder if inadequate evaporation prevents the smell from being removed, though mold does not seem to be an issue. It does dry completely eventually and does not smell like mold at all.
We've tried enzymatic products Nature's Miracle and Zero Odor but not the chemical-y carpet cleaners for fear of messing up the couch.
How to Remove Cat Urine from Leather Furniture
We're keeping the cat, no matter what. Also, we have been to the vet and she is physically healthy with no infections or illnesses causing the misbehavior.
Cleaning Cat Urine on Leather Boots
We have two cats, and two litterboxes that are cleaned daily. If you find the stain while it's still wet, use a white paper towel or cloth to absorb any urine still puddled on the surface of the cushion. Be sure to blot the stain and not rub itas rubbing will spread the urine around and make the problem worse.
If your couch allows, unzip the cover over the cushion and remove the padding inside. If any urine has reached the stuffing, take it to a large sink or your bathtub and wash it thoroughly with an enzymatic cleaner, the type that is readily available at pet stores. Squeeze and smoosh the stuffing to work the cleaner in and then repeat the process with plain water to rinse the cleaner away.
This is to try to help the cat forget it ever peed or sprayed there. The important thing is to discourage reuse, as cats tend to return to the same place. Another alternative is to keep the cat out of the room until it has resumed toileting where it is meant to. Already answered Not a question Bad question Other.
How to Clean Cat Urine From Leather
Tips This method is advisable mainly for black or dark coloured sofas. Throw away any towels you use right out of the house preferablyas they retain the pee odor. Keep your cat away from the item while doing the cleaning, to avoid re-spraying behaviour.
Warnings Don't yell at your pet. I would no sooner get rid of the cat than my child. Our cat, however, will be neutered because that is something I can do to remedy the situation. Our cat peed on my leather chair and our leather sofa.
We took her to the vet and she was free from infection, so we can only assume it is behavioral she is two and a highly anxious cat. The smell diminished, but was still present in the creases of the furniture.
Today we tried orange essential oil we bought at our health food store. Not sure how long the oil will cover up the urine smell, but we are hoping for the best. I used almost a whole bottle and it did nothing.
If you have a window in the affected room that you can open and put a fan in, do so. It sucks a lot, if not all, of the cat urine smell out. I have a leather chair I soaked in vingar. So far, he has not urinated on the chair again. The things that have seemed to have helped us so far are: We changed the litter to Dr. I will be back for Dr. Unfortunately, I am out of hydrogen peroxide at the moment and only used the vinegar, dish soap, bubbly water mixture this time around and the smell is still 90 percent gone. When my hubby wakes up to take over watch of our kids, I will return to the store for the correct cat litter and hydrogen peroxide.
I now remove the treated and clean couch pillows from their cases and covered them in plastic trash bags and then put the covers back on over the bags, in case of another pee attack, so I can just wash the covers in the laundry and follow the drip pee trail through the couch and replace the plastic trash bags. Although I know most of you are more interested in leather treatments…hope this helps someone.
It is so very frustrating to deal with cat pee issues…squirting them with water when they are near the peed on areas, or during the crime can deter them a bit, but probably not the end game. Our cat is 11 years old, and in the last year she has decided that going poop outside her litter box was the way it was going to be.
She has pooped on my leather furniture, and I am unable to get the smell out I need help. This morning she pooped on my rug by the front door and her litter box was completely clean.
How Do I Get the Smell of Cat Urine Out of My Leather Shoes?
Your cat could have a medical issue. I have a cat who has pooped on the floor but urinates perfectly in the litterbox since I got him at 7 months old. He is now 7 years old. Try a new, lower side litterbox, or change the type of litter you are using.
