Cat Urine Includes, But Is Not Limited, To Three Constituents
Cat Urine consists mainly of three parts: The Urea, the Urochrome, and Uric Acid. The Urea makes the urine sticky and allows the other two components to remain for the unpleasant color and odor. The Urochrome gives the urine its ugly yellow color, which stains carpets, furniture, the walls, and anywhere the cat sprays or urinates. The third part, Uric acid, consists of salts and crystals that give off the pungent odor. Also, if the cat continues to pee in the same area, the scent will continue to compound, causing the entire house to overtake occupants with the offensive smell of cat urine.
Used cat litter contains several chemicals, including ammonia, amines, and mercaptans (thiols). These are released (off-Gassing) from cat urine and feces, which degrade in stages. The first part, ammonia, is created, then the amines and mercaptans.
