We hear these types of stories all the time, but this one was a little different. This is the story of a little white cat who came across a skunk and the result of that encounter.
Recently, I was at one of my regular networking meetings with several of my colleagues from different industries. Linda, the local Kwik Kopy Printing franchise owner, was talking about her recent weekend trip away from town and what she came home to . . .
“While I was away, it seems that my little white cat, Mader (shown here with her buddy, Abby, The Black Lab) went out exploring near our property and somehow had found herself ‘face to face’ with another pussycat – a little black and white striped pussycat – not! – it was a very real, very smelly SKUNK! The skunk was apparently not impressed with our little Mader or her advances, so as skunks do, she sprayed our little kitty. Anyway, when she finally came home she smelled very skunkish so the lady who was housesitting for us tried the ‘old tomato juice treatment’ on our poor little pussy, washing her from head to toe in the stuff to get rid of the skunk smell. When she was finished she was horrified to find that our little white pussy had turned PINK – and that she smelled worse than ever! As you’ve probably gathered by now, the old home remedy of tomato juice doesn’t work to remove skunk odor.
By the time my husband and I got home from our trip, our housesitter was quite upset about the whole thing and worried for our poor little ‘skunky’ kitty. As soon as I dropped my bags, I went to the cleaning supply cupboard and pulled out my trusty EatOils™ Super Carpet-Fresh™ and began to soak Mader in it. I rubbed it into her coat and all over – everywhere that the tomato juice had gone. The skunk smell was gone in seconds and the pink from the tomato juice was gone too! A quick rinse in the shower – luckily, Mader loves the shower, and a good rubdown with a nice warm towel and Mader was as good as new! It’s now several weeks later and there is no sign of the skunk smell or that awful pink color – and Mader is off exploring once again – only this time she’ll know not to approach a striped kitty if she comes across one!”
Linda has used EatOils™ Super Carpet-Fresh™ for cleaning both of her pets, their bedding, litter areas, and wherever accidents occur. She swears by EatOils™ products, and she refers us to her friends – and with stories like these, who wouldn’t want to try our products!
I still can’t get over the fact that her cat loves to take a shower! I’ve had cats who will stand on the side of the tub and glare at me – but never one who wanted to join in!
