Keeping the catty smell away

(Q) I'm a breeder and have a houseful of cats. I have to confess; sometimes my house does have a 'catty smell'. Can you suggest ways that I can keep it smelling fresh?

(A) Vet Richard Allport says: Simple - I'm sure you must use a disinfectant on a regular basis for floors, work surfaces, litter trays, food bowls and so on.

Look for a disinfectant that's safe for cats and effective against germs - and one with a pleasant scent as this will help solve your problem.
