Making Peace With Cat Pee (Is Hard)
“Oh boy,” I sighed. “Making peace with cat pee is hard.”
And that’s what you have to do to get rid of what you don’t want – you have to stop not wanting it.
But who wants cat pee?!
It’s surely from the devil. So toxic. So permanent.
Even skunk smells eventually fade!
Cat pee I found to be a personal challenge.
But dropping resistance to feline urinary misdeeds at home? Ay yi yi.
That’s tricky business.
At least, for me it is. Because I have a charge on this subject.
A charge is when we have a really strong emotion on a subject we really don’t want.
And flowing that kind of energy guarantees we experience it again and again and again.
In fact, this podcast explains what a charge is, where they come from and what to do when you spot one.
But basically, we know that whatever we really don’t want we become strong magnets for.
Because strong emotion is irresistible to Universe.
It hears it as a siren call for more of the same.
So yeah, I know this prinicple, inside and out. I don’t doubt it for a single second.
And yet – making peace with the stuff we Really Don’t Want is hard.
I’m not going to elaborate on the horrors of cat urine on furniture or carpets, but suffice it to say, it was easier for me to accept my highest weight ever than it was to accept freakin’ cat pee on my favorite freakin’ reading chair.
I had an easier time letting go men I loved dearly than getting okay with inappropriate elimination in my home.
So. This post serves two purposes:
One, to offer tips for anyone who’s manifesting a urine-free environment while still keeping their best feline friends at home.
And two, to demonstrate the process that makes it possible to drop resistance to whatever we strongly don’t want.
Does it sound like a magic trick?
It sure felt like one.
And I certainly didn’t succeed on my first try, or my second, or even third attempt.
This one took practice.
You might find the same thing for whatever you’re strongly not wanting in your life.
Let’s start with what didn’t work …
I wasted time trying to manifest cats who didn’t pee on furniture while I had such a strong charge on the subject. That vibrational charge wouldn’t allow for an easy resolution because it served as a contrary instruction.
Second, I personally couldn’t get to the place where I was okay living with the smell of cat urine in the house. I just flat out wasn’t down with that. No one should have to live that way.
And giving up cats was absolutely not an option – although, even if I’d tried that, I had such strong feelings about it that I’m sure Universe would have found a way to get some on my $*&@% pillow. Because it’s creative like that.
No amount of action can overcome a strong vibration.
(Proven by multiple vet visits and extra litter boxes with different litters and animal communicator sessions.)
Experience had shown me I couldn’t action my way out of this problem.
So what I did when I moved into the new house (and even more strongly didn’t want cats to pee in this brand new pee-free place – it had new furniture and clean carpets!) was to find a way to make it not such a big deal if they did it.
How could I get to the place where I was okay with cat pee?
Well, if it didn’t ruin my furniture, that would be a nice start. If the cleanup was easier, that would go a long way in feeling easier about the whole thing. If I were willing to replace furniture regularly, or if I knew there was an end to this routine at some point in my life, that might help, too.
So I’d do the average lifespan math on my problem pee-ers every once in a while, and remind myself how much I’d miss them when they were gone. I suggested to self that perhaps this was a good excuse to have a regular rotation of new furniture and carpets. It’s just money, after all.
That maybe moved me a little bit in the right vibrational direction, but it wasn’t transformational.
What really worked in taking the charge off cat pee was this:
I devised a setup whereby if they peed somewhere other than a litterbox, the cleanup would be more effective and easier to accomplish.
(I put mylar emergency blankets on the potential preferred peeing spots and covered them with easy to wash blankets.)
It was inconvenient and kind of awkward when company came over, but it gave me peace of mind that the world would not end if a cat picked the new sofa instead of the litterbox to relieve herself.
Indeed, it became something of a game, where I felt triumphant every time I outwitted a cat and was able to eliminate their mess with no trace they’d ever been there.
“Ha ha!” I’d shout to cats who weren’t listening and didn’t care. “You are foiled again!”
My vibe went from resistant to triumphant.
Yes, I was doing a lot of laundry, but my system was working.
And guess what?
It was no longer such a big deal if someone peed where they shouldn’t.
And guess what else?
Pretty soon, they stopped peeing in all but one place – a meditation cushion that I’m happy to let them have if that’s what it takes for peace to reign.
I don’t even keep the emergency blankets on the couches any more!
As I chilled out about it (because I found a way to truly relax), they stopped doing it.
Funny how that works, huh?
While it’s not my highest joy to write about cat pee challenges, I am happy to share proof that we can release resistance on the things that bother us most. And once we do so, our reality changes, too.
What to do if your charge is on something like money, or relationships, or health issues instead of stupid cat pee?
It’s the same process …
Find a way to relax about it.
Get a second source of income. Remind yourself you’ll find love again. Or that kids grow up and move out. Practice loving your body as is.
Whatever’s bothering you, there are all sorts of ways we can change how we feel about it, whether it’s finding different thoughts or taking creative action that gives vibrational relief.
Whatever you do, please don’t expect that you’ll be able to create what you want while under the spell of a highly charged negative focus. The system just isn’t setup to ignore that kind of instruction.
And if you have tips for how to make peace with something strongly unwanted, we’d love to hear them in the comments.
Thanks for reading, and for joining me in visioning a happy household where eliminations by all parties are appropriate and desired. Where humans and felines get along fabulously, with lots of respect and appreciation for each other and for the furniture.
And so it is. 🙂
