I adopted two cats with  intermittent litter box issues to a very clever 
adopter a couple of years  ago.  These two -- gorgeous Maine Coon sisters -- 
would pee where they  shouldn't when they were stressed, like with rehoming 
for example.  This  adopter covered her sofa with plastic wrap and then 
dabbed vinegar all over  it.  She did this for a month while the girls settled 
and bonded with  their litter boxes.  FWIW, it worked.

Hi, I'm Tonya. I haven't been on list for quite a while. My  positive cat 
DD is doing great. She is going on 14! We had some wetting  incidents over 
the summer, and I was sure we were looking at kidneys, but her  vet visit 
found her healthy....
I am pretty much the queen of waterproofing. And yes it does save  heating 
bills in the winter!
My question is this. I have used everything mentioned for beds on  sofas to 
no effect. Anyone have a peeproof sofa recommendation besides  covering in 
plastic and then covering with sheets? My cat will move and pull  all the 
plastic away and get some of the urine on the sofa. I have a sofa and  a love 
seat turned upside down in my living room right now where I gave  up!

For the summer, you can get either the disposable large size pads  or the 
adult mattress pads that are sold at medical supply shops for adults  with 
bladder incontinence.  Hey, I'm the queen of waterproofing.   With all the 
cats I have had, there has always been a bed wetting problem  with at least one 
or two of them.  Instead of screaming and tearing my  hair out and dumping 
the cat out the door, I used some of my elderly mom's  disposable mattress 
pads for a while.  She actually wasn't incontinent  but she couldn't walk so 
needed a bed pan, so just in case...I would use the  mattress pads.  Then I 
purchased several of the washable types when one  of my very old cats began 
thinking the bed was her litter box.  You can  also purchase a zippered 
waterproof mattress cover, then put a regular  quilted mattress topper over it 
and just toss the topper into the washing  machine if someone makes a 
mistake, sponge the waterproof cover with rubbing  alcohol.  It's a good 
after it evaporates.  But in the  summer, if you don't want to feel you are 
being shrink wrapped, you can use  the top removable types and either toss 
into the wash or toss into the  garbage if they are disposable.  The 
washable are more economical. You  can even make up the bed in the morning and 
put a fitted waterproof  mattress topper over the whole thing to keep 
everything good while you are  gone.  If an accident happens, you just whisk 
cover off and you are  ready for sleeping in the bed.

For the nasty drip into the mattress I  would recommend an enzyme type odor 
eliminator.  I used to use Petzyme,  which you can purchase at PetsMart.  
It doesn't have any added scent as  a cover up.  Sometimes I think I prefer 
the odor of cat pee to those  awful "perfumes" they dump into deodorizers.  
When you use the enzyme  type deodorizer, you have to make sure the spot 
stays wet for at least 24  hours.  If it dries out, by-by little beneficial 
bacteria and the  enzyme doesn't work.
You can Google cat urine neutralizer or deodorizer  and see what you come 
up with. There are many brands and many  prices.

Spay and Neuter  your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty 
neighbors  too!
