Cats; who doesn’t love cats? These cuddly companions steal our hearts, beds and become a part of our families. Simply owning a cat is known to benefit your health by curbing anxiety, and lowering stress levels and blood pressure. If you have pets, at one point or another you’ve noticed a smell that leads you to the scene of a crime and lo and behold, your beloved kitty has had an accident on the floor. An all too familiar scene of scrubbing and blotting on our hands and knees only to find that the odor still lingers! Spot cleaning only cleans the surface of your carpets and therefore makes it almost impossible to rid your house not only of the smell but also the bacteria now living deep in your carpet fibers. As we walk around we rustle up the old allergens hidden deep in our carpets and release them back into the air we breathe.
Health Effects & Illness from Breathing in Cat Urine Odor
To make matters worse there are several health risks associated with inhaling cat urine and feces. Cat urine wreaks of ammonia which is known to cause respiratory issues, especially in those who suffer with asthma or COPD. Highly concentrated amounts of ammonia can also cause other respiratory ailments such as bronchitis or pneumonia. Unfortunately, the list doesn’t end there. Cats also carry the parasite Toxoplasma Gondii and the bacteria E-coli in their intestines and pass it through their feces. We can get sick by simply touching our mouth or not thoroughly washing our hands with soap and warm water after coming into contact with cat feces. Normal healthy adults naturally have E-coli living in their intestines, however, certain strains can make it into your bloodstream and wreak havoc. Those who are pregnant, young, or have a weakened immune system are especially at risk of contracting these diseases.
