Whenever anybody goes in the backyard the dog goes crazy, barking, growling through the fence like he want to eat to you up.

The dog runs off wimpering. It works well. The dog stays quite for about 2 weeks then it has to be repeated.post #95 of 1281/18/08 at 9:35amQuote:My dad does this to the neighbors dog.

Amost doneOK, so a quick follow-up on how it's going. I've soaked the liners in an enzyme based cleaner for over a day and then threw them in the washing machine with the same enzyme-based cleaner, a bit of washing powder and when the water came on, poured about two cups of spirit vinegar into the rinse. The boots have since dried and seem completely odorless (almost a bleachy smell). I'm going to take this as a positive but I guess I won't know the 'real' truth until I go skiing again. So I'm off on a day trip next weekend and so i'll post you guys back the real truth. [I honestly hope this never happens to any of you guys - what a whole bunch of stress and hard work - Yeah I hate doing the laundry! :-)]post #102 of 1281/22/08 at 9:21amMrs. Yuki .. Hey! What's all this stuff inside my boots?
Yuki .. A mouse nest, I told you not to leave them in the garage. She watches as I empty the shreds of paper (yellow urine stained), and mouse turds.
Mrs. Yuki .. Now what do I do for boots?
So I triple washed them and all that and they were fine, but Mrs. Yuki is not afraid of bears or anything ....... except .... she hates mice ...
I will admit to having a bit of fun with this one .... : .... but Mrs. Yuki is so tight with money she can squeeze the nickle till the buffalo farts ... it killed her having to shell out for new boots when she could have got at least 20 more years out of those.post #103 of 1281/22/08 at 9:30ampost #104 of 1281/22/08 at 9:35amDarn cats! I had one piss in my luggage right before I went to Wildcat, NH once.
My friend had a racoon die in his attic once. No idea how it got there. He hired some pro to get rid of the oder. The pro used this.
I also had a dead opposum in an attic of a house I was renting. I poured a bag of crushed lime on it.
Those must be really nice liners!
Sorry I'm late. Just got back from Mammoth.post #105 of 1281/22/08 at 9:59amQuote:I also had a dead opposum in an attic of a house I was renting.Quote:

Once apon a time in Hillbilly country, a young man had just finished grad school and embarked on a new job. Part of the deal was a free place to stay!
The new bachelor pad was in need of a bathroom exhaust fan. So, the young man being quite handy (ie. short of cash) installs a new exhaust fan in the ceiling.
Several days pass in complete serenity.
Then... during the young mans morning constitutional... he notices what he thinks are meal worms laying on the floor.
So... the curious young man removes the exhaust fan and pokes his head up in the space between roof and ceiling.
A slight breeze picks up...The young man falls off his step stool... wretching.
Young man cuts additional hole in ceiling and PEELS a large dead rodent off the ceiling. Wretching, and yes the OJ came back up for air.
BTW...Those weren't meal worms.:post #107 of 1281/22/08 at 12:47pmpost #108 of 1281/22/08 at 2:07pmpost #109 of 1283/3/10 at 3:45pmpost #110 of 1283/3/10 at 5:14pmpost #111 of 1283/3/10 at 5:18pmQuote:Originally Posted by trvlnut1
There's stuff you can buy at the pet store called Nature's miracle. It contains an enzyme that will eat the protein in the cat urine. It's the only thing that may work that I know of. You will need to soak your liners and anything else the cat peed on and leave it soaking for days (maybe weeks). I would put them in a plastic bag to soak because they need to stay wet. Re-soak when needed.
i have that natures miracle stuff, it works so good that you can tell where our dog has peed because that's the cleanest spot on our carpet. But who the heck wouldn't want to have an excuse to buy new gear??post #112 of 1283/3/10 at 5:25pmQuote:You sound like a rottweiler owner.
Edit: aaaaand I just realized how old this thread is.... the more I read though, the more classic it gets. I'm bustin a gut over here.post #113 of 1283/3/10 at 6:14pmQuote:
This definitely a classic thread! Glad to see it again!post #114 of 1285/3/10 at 7:16pmOn the other side Muja is definitely well overdue on his laundry report...
But man, does this thread deserves to be the crown jewel or what! Can't remember when i laughed so hard last time. The poetry bits are priceless
The picture of UTpowder's old man peeing on the barking dog's nose will haunt my dreams forever
BTW, i noticed that someone here proposed to use a bottle of pure alcohol to Muja... Dudes, he is in Finland, that stuff is expensive there and goes IN the person, and only then by sheer luck it might make it down to his boots :D
Vladpost #115 of 1285/3/10 at 8:27pmMan, I hate to be serious in the midst of this fabulous thread, but alas . . .
Neutering the cat (if it's male) may help the situation, but not necessarily. Female cats pee. Fixed cats pee. Neutered cats pee. They all pee.
LIke philippeR indicated, peeing on the cat may be the best bet here.Quote:Originally Posted by Nobody
In all seriousness, if you look for less drastic measures, neutralize him. I know it's not nice and that will not solve the present problem, but you need to look at ways to avoid a future "repeat".
Cats are "territorial"...it could well be that he mistook the smell coming out from your boots as "territory marking" from another animal and hastened to reclaim what he perceived as "his".post #116 of 1285/4/10 at 8:20ampost #117 of 1285/4/10 at 9:00ampost #118 of 1285/10/10 at 1:06pmpost #119 of 1285/11/10 at 9:54ampost #120 of 12810/24/10 at 11:55amThread Starter
Just logged back in after ages... (Winter is getting into full swing here in Finland and the perma snow should be on the ground soon). Might try and get to Levi in a few weeks to watch the pros and start my own season.
OK, the laundry report Well thanks for all the great ideas posted here... Someone mentioned alcohol, and as rightly mentioned by Vladl, expensive alcohol goes down the throat here in Finland and nowhere else
I did the enzyme wash and vinegar rinse and all seemed fine. I don't know if this is a psychological thing but I feel the smell is still there. I can't notice when it's dry but after a day's skiing, I take them off and I'm sure the funky cat smell is still there.
I decided to resign my boots and liners as a second pair now, I bought a new pair of Fisher Progressors last year and they are working a charm. Keeping these well away from the cat, which we still have by the way
