Urinating and pooing are all too common and when they start defending their territory they start “marking” with the scent gland on their chest. This leave marks, really dirty, hard to remove marks on all the surfaces the touch.

  2. Every time it rains the uric acid absorbs the moisture and it starts smelling all over again.
