Took basil in the car, then his carrier.
He doesn't allow me to put him in his carrier until he is in the car first.
He put up a little fight this morning, but he finally got in. Started the car and headed to the vet. On the road and he BOLTS through his cage like a ninja!
Pull over and realized he Broke the zippers and everything. Had no where to put him since his cage broke, so had to drive with him loosely.
Have a screaming curious Bengal peaking out all of the windows and everyone's waving at him from their cars.

Get to the vets office late from having to pull over for the whole ordeal and politely ask them if they have a spare cat carrier I can put him in since he broke his. Put him in the carrier and bring him in. Vet tries to get a urine sample by squeezing on his bladder a little because it usually works, nada. He has a full bladder but wont release so she has to use needle to take sample.

We sit in the waiting room for about half an hour to get his urine sample results- I figured out how to fix his broken zipper cage and put him back in his own cage. we get the results, and our prescription and head back on the road to pick up his prescriptions. Suddenly I smell it- he pees himself. He never pees himself, poor baby probably couldn't hold it any longer after! Well- his urine seeps through the carrier and a bit of the smell got on the car seat.

We finally get home after having to pick up his prescription (somehow accomplishing to get cat urine all over my leg) and poor Basil is so humiliated with himself he didn't even eat his lunch. Just hid under the kitchen table trying to clean himself for hours. I felt so bad for him.


Here we are 12 hours later with the carrier in the wash being cleaned and a stinky sleeping kitty on my lap.
What a day.

Lesson here? Invest in a hard case carrier.
Any suggestions on how long you think Basil will have a musky Urine smell to him? :confused2:
I don't think its a good idea to attempt giving Basil a bath....LOL :rolleyes:

oh Basil you naughty puddy-cat!!

Erm - I would bath him, or at very least rub a wet flannel on him. He'll hate you for it but it will reduce the smell.
Poor thing - hope he's ok. Good luck getting the smell out of your car - get a good enzyme killer on it quick otherwise that will come and haunt you on the hotter days.

Oh crikey that sounds like a hellish adventure, what a cheeky little thing!

My sister has a bengal cross who also managed to break the zips on his carrier when we were coming home from the cattery & kennels the other week, absolute mayhem as they also had their Pointer puppy in the car and Bruce (the cat) was climbing all over him meowing while he was howling :eek:

I think i would also probably try to wipe him down with a damp cloth. Not sure that i would be brave enough to give a full bath! Hope he gets rid of his stink soon!

Reminds me of the time I took Maddie our Grey British Short hair the Vets a couple of months back. I didn't want to freak her out to much by getting the pet carrier out too soon, but in hind sight if I had of left it around for a while she may have gone for a pooh before me wrestling her into the carrier. Half way to the vets the smell of pooh starts wafting around the car and I'm left wondering what to do. I wasn't in a place where I could open the carrier so I waited until we arrived at the vets (holding our noses the whole way) and then ushered her out of the basket and on to the back seat of my car.

Eventually I managed to let her out in the back of my car, remove the towel, but as I did that the pooh feel out on to the car park floor right outside my car. I ushered her back into the box so I could take her in, then sheepishly asked the vet if they had a carrier bag I could use to pick up the pooh from her car park. Luckily I had a hard carry case so no pooh got on the car seat.

Poor baby! Hope he's OK after his trauma!

Get a new chamoise leather, and give him a really good rub over with it slightly damp - The leather will stimulate the natural oils in his coat, and leave him smelling of leather for a while. Also works after vet trips if you have multiple cats - just rub them all over with it, then they all smell lovely!

Wipe him down with a damp, warm washcloth. If a cat i unhappy eough with their stench, they will happily let you do it.

One time one of mine peed in the (hard) carrier on the way home from his neuter. He was so mad he flug the pee at me through the carrier door the whole way home. Funny now, I was so...I don't even know what the word is...at the time!

I hope you both have a better day tomorrow! :biggrin:

:rofl: !!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS! I was literally laughing out loud picturing this. What a nightmare that would have been if Maddie's poo was garnished into the seat. Scrapping the seat all day with soap and remover- and sticking your nose into it to try and get test whiffs to confirm the smell is gone- Hahaha.
Transporting always seems to be full of SURPRISES.

Hahah! :lol: Naughty Mcnaughty!
Immediate shower is required. Did it take a couple washes to remove the smell from your clothes?
Basils Pee is so potent, I know it would take me a few washes and a good urine remover spray to get rid of the smell.
