Cat Pee
I adopted a 4 year old golden retriever 2 months ago. Since then my youngest cat (5 month male kitten) has happily wee'd on my & my son's bed four times (he purrs while he's weeing). I will have him checked by the vet and handle the behaviour, but I would like to know what are the health risks associated with cat wee? Also, will pheroma odour neutralizer remove bacteria (if any)?
Thanks. Kev

This is definitely a hygiene problem, but not necessarily a health risk problem. It also sounds like a possible behaviour problem, although some cats with bladder problems will do the same. Have it checked out by your vet.
