: Hi Caren,
: Can you describe the marks a little more?
: Have the paw prints have discolored the buffet, or does it look like a difference in sheen? Is the finish still smooth, or is it rough where the prints are?
: I have a little furry rascal myself, and Wood Elixir is certainly been helpful to have around the house when you have pets! (I get a lot of surface scratches on one particular table from her claws)
: : I have cat paw marks on the tops of my furniture that I can not get off, I've tried several cleaners and polishers but they won't come off. I even tried elbow grease with a nylon covered sponge. One of the pieces is an old Buffet and I am not sure what the top finish is and the other is,I think varnish, and the other probably a varathane of some sort.
: : I'm thinking they are as a result of the clumping cat litter I use for her but I am not sure, which has left a residue on her paws. It could also just be the oils in her paws.(she gets on these pieces at night when I have no control).
: : Any help in this regard would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for responding to my post on the cat paw marks.
The marks are dull marks with no sheen. They almost look a little Smokey. I contacted a Veterinarian about my problem, and she told me that cats perspire thru their paws, and that a good polish should get it off.
I use a good polish and cleaner with a lot of elbow grease but they are hard if not impoosible to remove. And of course once I get them off, my cat has returned with more paw marks.
What is "wood elixir??" and where would I purchase it. I live in Canada.
Any help would be appreciated.
