    How do they do that anyway? My little girls cat managed to urinate in her book bag last year while it was hanging on the wall. Good luck!

    You should send them to PeeCGS to get them slabbed.

    I am going to try peeing on some coins and see what happens. Might take photos of the coins before and after, and after more periods of time. I do have several cats but have no idea of how to talk them into hosing down my coins.

    Not if you give them distilled water !
    Correct...giving you dog distilled water to drink instead of tap water will stop their urine from burning the grass <aka fairy rings> or your neighbors shrubs on a walk.
    My first home was a town home with a back yard 20'x 37 feet. Put a Dalmatian in that area to use as a potty you learn quick the distilled water has nothing in it like minerals that cause the chemical reaction. Especially from a female dog who chemistry changes monthly.

    If you train them to go in your neighbors yard then your shrubs will be fine.

    Wonder what Pee-CGS thinks of this numismatic accomplishment?

    My cat’s pee would take your head off. Her liter box is in the hallway corner, outside of my office, where the coins are. When she lets go in the box, it can make one’s head spin.

    I can't deny your experience, but I can't see any way that minerals in water would make a significant difference. It's the nitrogen in their urine that causes the problem, as I understand it, not minerals.

    I even see a product that's supposed to help by removing nitrogen from their drinking water. That's quackery, I think. The nitrogen in the pee comes from proteins in their food. You can't cut out the proteins.

    Yeah, that cat pee is right pungent...so is lion and tiger urine.

    Is that recommended instead of acetone?

    ...perhaps you should try the distilled water... :)

    ...but I digress. My major prof in grad school got interested in cat phermones, specifically the musk-like material from civet cats. Now here was his reasoning...if they can collect the civet cat phermone (civetone) from the urine of these cats, why not from lions and tigers...but, difficult and dangerous to collect tiger or lion urine, so why not see what is in the...uh...solid waste product!!! The Atlanta Zoo collected samples for him, but we requested the student working on the project to please do his work after the rest of us had left... The work consisted of stuffing the ...samples into a flask and trying to see what would come out with different solvents. Long story short, it didn't work.

    Well from day 1 of giving her distilled h2o no grass burned no plants either.
    And from thay day on no city water....just distilled.
    And a vet did tell us certain breeds have bladder stones...caused by city water, and she would tell her clients to give their dogs distilled water.

    Wow, we really got off the coin subject on this thread, talking about poop and pee, surprised the mods have not shot us down yet. Apparently some of you are well trained in chemistry, and have more idea of what is going on with these liquids and metals. It is good that you can share your knowledge with the others. I still have not acquired any of that stuff that supposedly stops copper disease.
