Cat Urine Detector
If you can smell cat pee, but have not been able to find it, here's your secret weapon!
The Spot SpotterTM HD by Simple Solution is a little flashlight with 21 powerful LED ultraviolet (UV) bulbs in it to make cat urine glow bright yellow! Once you've found the source of the odor, use your favorite cleaner (that's Simple Solution, right?) to remove the offending stains.
Works on carpet, bedding, furniture...any of the surfaces where cats will pee. Powered by three AAA batteries, which are included.
Use this in a darkened room for best results; the higher the ambient light in the room, the closer you'll have to get the flashlight to the urine stain to see it. I use mine at night and turn off the lights in the room where I'm checking.
Why does cat urine glow under a black-light? It's because of the phosphorous in the urine. When it comes in contact with the oxygen in the air, phosphorous becomes chemiluminescent - i.e., it glows in the dark. We usually can't see this with our human eyes' normal range of vision. But under a UV light, it becomes visible to us. Ultraviolet light ranges from 10 to 400 nanometers. The human eye can observe light starting at around 400 nanometers. Pretty cool, huh?
Also be aware of this: if your cat is regularly peeing outside the litter box, there is a reason for it. In my case, it was a rescued cat introduced into the household after my two boys were accustomed to being the only cats in my home. That was exactly when the soiling of floors near the litter boxes began. Sometimes it may indicate a urinary tract infection. It may also be that your cat does not like the type of litter in the box, or the box is not cleaned daily. Or something may have frightened your cat while he was using the litter box, and he associated the box with that fear. Make sure you address the underlying problem, and you may not need to be cleaning up urine stains as often.
Once you get one of these, you will never know how you existed without it! I love mine and use it all the time!
