The Mysterious Smell

There is a horrible smell in my front closet, it smells urine-like to me. I suspect it's cat-related. It is driving me CRAZY. It happened before and I cleaned and disinfected everything and it still smelled, but then I threw out the mat in front of the door and the smell went away. Now the smell is back. Sigh...

Do you live in an apartment of some sort. Sometimes smells from neighbours mysteriously seep through your walls and ceilings and floors. Or maybe you get up in the night and sleep pee in odd places?? har har

I just discovered that my cat peed in my yarn stash. I have no idea how long ago or how frequently he did it, but I have no doubt it was him. The entire yarn stash went out to the curb last Thursday. Perhaps you will have to bite the bullet and put your closet out to the curb too.

I'm re-evaluating the sensory data - it may not be cat pee (or vomit) - it may be off-gassing of some kind (from... my yoga mat? a raincoat?)... I'm pretty sure I don't sleep-pee.

I had a boyfriend who sleep-peed. Fortunately he always sleep-walked before sleep-peeing.

I found the location of the smell, which was a fleece sweater hanging on a hook. The source of the peculiar pungency remains a mystery...
