Help

My cat peed on my cutting board. My mom got it for me when she went on a cruise to Alaska-it has a little bowl set in it with a special knife. It is very cool, and I haven't even used it yet. Apparently, Orson thought the little bowl looked like the perfect toilet or something. Anyone know how to clean it? Anyone know how to humanely murder a cat? I really like him, but he's been peeing out of his kitty litter box quite a bit-the laundry basket and one of the kids' storage containers were his objects of choice before my beloved cutting board. Luckily, he goes for the empty containers...

I don't know how to clean your board (sorry!) but I do know something about your cat. Take him to the vet. Most likely he has a bladder/kidney infection and needs some antibiotics to clear it up. That's what cats do when they get those sorts of infections, pee everywhere. What a pain!!

Ivy read my mind.

It sounds like he has bladder stones.

As for cleaning the board, I would suggest a mixture of Borax (or baking soda) and dishwashing liquid. That and some boiling water will disinfect and remove the smell.

He hasn't been fixed (spade? neutered?) yet, so that could be the problem too I suppose. I'm planning on calling the vet tomorrow.
