I’m the type of person who absolutely loves animals.
- If I ever see a critter in need I am guaranteed to try to pick it up and take care of it.
I would never turn a little friend away. I absolutely love feeling like I am helping in the world, even if we’re talking about cats and dogs. That being said, I am particularly challenged by cats sometimes. I don’t think that I am a germaphobe or a cleaning fanatic, but I can’t stand cat litter. I think that litter boxes are absolutely disgusting and cats are extremely smelly. No matter what I do in my house the cat odors infiltrate the entire volume of indoor air. I’m constantly trying to find new places to sequester the litter box, but the disgusting smells always walked out and get caught in the central heating, cooling, and air quality control system. Once the bacteria filled air is circulating through my air duct work and passing through the heating and cooling system, it’s game over. The airborne smells are effectively distributed throughout my entire house and my air quality is never the same. No matter how many air fresheners I attempt to use, I can’t remove the stink from my air. I’ve even gone so far as having professional heating and cooling appointments to clean my air ducts work… But nothing gets rid of the cat stench. At this point, I think I’m going to have to upgrade my air filters and air handling devices to eliminate the unwanted cat smells. I’m not excited about paying more money for indoor air quality control, but anything is better than constantly gagging over a litter box.
