Cat in Crawl Space

Category Cats

A young cat has gotten under our house crawl space. I have lured it out with food, but was unable to block the hold before it quickly went back under the house. Any suggestions for luring it out long enough to block the hole? It has been under the house for awhile -- urine smell. Any suggestions for eliminating the odor without crawling under house? We do have a crawl space door that I could open and put or throw something into.


Please help,

Try sardines or veal baby food. Both have strong smells (and can mask smells & tastes when you need to give medicine to pets too). As for the smell, try tossing charcoal ( like you use in the grill) under there (unused and untreated, of course). They absorb odors in closets and storage sheds.
Good luck!

White vinegar, full strength, sprayed or poured on the cat urine area often will help neutralize the odor. When the vinegar is finished doing it's job, and has dried, there will be no residual vinegar odor. Might have to use more than one application. Allow it to dry naturally, as it acts as an enzyme & needs time.
