So my house was invaded the other day...
by a stray cat...
my front door is messed up, and unless you lock it it doesn't stay shut. well my boyfriend left the other day and didn't lock it. I ended up getting a call from my mom, who saw the door open when she drove by. apparently it had been hanging open for like an hour. she managed to get it shut by wedging something under it.
so the next day my 4 year old tells me about the black cat in the hall. she's got a pretty good imagination so I just brushed it off. she insisted, so I ended up looking for it a couple times with no evidence. and our house cat was acting normal.
2 days later my boyfriend was here and we both heard a cat meow from the hall. it was just us, and my cat was beside me. we looked again and found it. we tried to chase it out, but it somehow managed to crawl under my bathroom sink. I thought it was curled up behind the water heater, but then realized it had access to underneath my tub too.
so we tried to get it out for like 2 days. and it refused. we had no way of getting it. it would come out if we left the cabinet open, but shoot right back in if we even breathed from another room.
yesterday we decided to hunt it down. and looked all over for it. there's no evidence that its still here. I even put down baby powder to see if it was under the sink (paw prints).
problem is, either he sprayed or my cat did. and now my house smells horrid. does anyone know how to get it out. we've been lysol and febreezing every couple hours. I put down baking soda and tomorrow I'm moving all the furniture out of my bedroom and cleaning the carpets in there really good. but if it was the other cat, and it sprayed where I physically can't get too...what can I do?
I'm seriously contemplating moving at this point. any advice would help!
