    Sorry to laugh, but that's hilarious!

    "Honey, look what YOUR cat did! You know, there's this really nice bag down at the shop that I've been wanting to get anyway..."

    Don't feel too bad. Years ago I had a dog that knew she wasn't allowed to poo in the house. She decided to do it anyway and hide the evidence. She nosed open the case to my bass guitar, crapped in it, and nosed it closed again. Took me forever to find the source of the odor and by the time I did, the case was ruined.

    I had a similar situation once, I had a big padded bag in my basement for a video projector. Picked it up hmmm... wet??? Smell to holly high hell. Must have been pissed on dozens of times. The zipper was even rusted. Thankfully the only thing in it was the manual and the European power cord(useless). So in the trash it went.

    And I have 3 cats and a dog, the best part is that the cats attack the dog all the time.

    After you wash the bag out, just an idea...it might look pretty cool with a new cat-skin liner. That would also assert dominance profoundly. :)

    Cat pee is evil, evil stuff. Did any urine make contact with your ammo? I'd imagine the brass looks pretty sad if it did.

    I had a situation years ago while trying to house-break our puppy.
    To make a long story short, I had a real nice Win 97 20" bbl with a vented handguard lying on a gun case on the floor in a spare room (no kids then). I went up one day to wipe it down and when I walked into the room I got a whiff ouf something foul. Seems my pup decided to retaliate for some of my "discipline", and crapped and peed, dead nuts in the middle of my 97. Not anywhere else in the room, just on my shotgun.
    Let me tell you how urine and fecal matter can strip bluing.
    My wife thinks I'm nuts for insisting that the dog did it deliberately.
    Kept the dog, sold the 97. Shiould have been the other way around.

    not only does it smell bad, it is also VERRY corrosive! i too had a problem with cats, mine pee'd on my box i keep my shooting gear in. wasted a couple sks mags, and some aluminum cleaning rods. ( thats the reason i bought bore snakes.) my sugestion to you for the cats is tell your wife that they destroied ALOT of things more than they really did, (but hey, its kinda like telling your insurance agent that you had all top of the line stuff in the garage fire.)

    By Default :

    -Cats own people, in this case your wife.

    -Everything that is yours, is your wifes, and everything wifes is wifes.

    -So by default the cat wet his/her own range bag. :)



    For a $1 I will share the "how" and "why" of the term "Sail-Cat" :)

    Dawgs are Man's best friend...remember that. ;)

    I remember when I put a pair of pants with my wallet in it on the floor and our cat peed on my pants and got my wallet. When I picked up my pants they were not wet from the cat pee, but man , my wallet and everything in it smelled of cat pee. :fire: :cuss: :cuss: :cuss:

    Nope. Not any more. It's marked you. From henceforth, the cat is yours. Congratulations.

    No I'm not really that cruel, just use it as a blessing to get some new stuff. She can't argue the fact that her beast fouled your gear. :)

    Best of luck.

    Egyptians worshiped cats, we humans have forgotten this, cats have not.

    I have three who used to take it upon themselves to "advertise" themselves to me pre-neuter (or spay whatever it is for females) by squating infront of me and going....:scrutiny: :uhoh: :eek: :what: :confused: :mad: was my general reaction. The cat learned that it is not above soccer ball status :neener:

    On a serious note I knwo that pee is some nasty stuff and while I love all my animals they don't come in my room. They don't go outside the litter anymore provided I do my part and keep it changed and clean for them, but they went through a phase and I'm not finding out if they have a relapse with my bedroom stuff.

    I found my cat 7yrs ago on my way home from work, the mom had been run over and the 10wk old kitten was sitting next to the firehydrant waiting for mom to come back and get it. I brought it home and now thinks I'm its mom and it gives me all of its affection, she has even tried to shower with me. You think that wasn't funny watching a cat swat at the water drops and not fall off the edge of the tub more than 4 or 5 times had me rolling in the shower.

    Well I get a new bag :) my wife met me at the range after she got out of work this evening, she wondered why I was using one of her bags (small duffle type) I explained where mine was:barf:

    Shot the ammo, The mag got oiled and cleaned- didn't seem to get a direct hit- the rest is pretty much done. I dont hold much hope, cat pee is impossible to ge rid of.

    On the plus side the owner of the range/shop started talking to her about a nice .357 and a sweeeet Sig Tactical,told her about the Gem Tech (She is almost ready to get her own gun and CCW:) )

    So I guess this is just one of those marrige things

    Remember also: What cats bury, dogs eat. :barf:

    LOL

    About six months ago I picked up a National Geographic RC Tarantula.

    [​IMG]

    When I brought it home, I waited until one of my cats (named Uther) was soundly asleep in a cat bed. I put the spider down about two feet from Uther and softly called his name to wake him up. As he groggily looked around he spotted the spider and jumped up about eight inches, landing back in the cat bed. He swayed from side to side sizing up the spider, then gingerly stuck out one paw to touch it.

    Thats when I made the spider scuttle foward about six inches toward Uther.

    Cat leaped about three feet straight up and came down all fluffed up. Spider scuttled foward another six inches and Uther jumped to one side to get away, landing about 50 degrees off the centerline of the spider.

    Reaching foward again with a paw, the spider abruptly turned toward Uther and scuttled foward again. Uther took off for the high ground of the cat tree, much to the dismay of the other tomcat Kahless who was already up there sleeping (they are NOT friends).
    If you have to ask, you would not understand. :D

    Forgot to mention before. Peeing on the range bag may have just been territory marking. Or it may have been an early sign that the cat is having urinary issues. Sometimes if the diet is off, crystals of MgNH4PO4·6H2O (struvite) will form in the bladder. The crystals act like little shards of glass against the inner wall of the urethra, producing pain apon urination. The cat will urinate elsewhere in an attempt to avoid the pain associated with using the litter box. Keep an eye on the animal. If its constantly returning to the litter box, get it to a vet NOW.

    As a cat owner who has had cat pee on some important things...

    Forget "nature's miracle" cat urine remover, coffee, tomato juice, etc..

    Baking soda works so well in the wash it's amazing- like the cat never peed on it!

    Best buck you'll ever spend (on cat pee, anyway).

    :scrutiny: I don't think having your "buddy" being that close to a mad ball of claws on a short string is a very good idea.

    I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself.

    Get some “Odor Out” or “Odoban”. We get ours from ‘Sam’s Club’. (Same thing either way just a different manufacturer.) It is the single greatest odor killer known to man. It actually destroys odor on a biological lever as opposed to just “covering it up”. It will even kill cat urine odor. I have five cats and use it to deodorize around the litter boxes. There is never any odor in the room plus it doesn’t stain cloth so you can use it on anything. It makes a great general purpose room deodorizer as well.

    Love dogs and cats. Had dozens of each over the years.

    About two-thirds of my cats went nuts over black olives. Seemed to be even stronger than catnip. Darndest thing.

    And all cats seem to love liverwurst and Braunschweiger.

    But cats are citizens, dogs are subjects.

    Here are two cats exercising their proper roles as citizens: Sitting on the government (me).

    Best proactive measure: get a different range bag. Failing that, baking soda and coffee grounds absorb (and in the case of coffee, help cover as well) odors.

    Best defensive measure: take the damn cat out and shoot it. If your wife isn't OK with that, see how she likes a spritz bottle full of amoania/skunk extract coming in contact with her shoe collection. Cats aren't bad, except the ones that don't behave as proper pets should. I love my cat, but if she started pissing all over the place, acting crazy, etc. I'd have to take her out and put her down. :(

    you have a range bag... so, you have a gun. but you have a cat? does not compute. either have gun, or have cat, but cannot have both, and a gun trumps every cat every time...
