Have landlord refinish the floors

Could be your furniture. Has it all been 100% cat free?

Haha gf is highly allergic to cats so when she viewed it the place we were told it'd be completely cleaned and she was in and out quickly. Def does not smell bad 😬

Sounds like additional cleaning is in order. Pick up a black light flashlight and walk around the place in the dark. Check bottom half of walls and floor. Never dealt with a smell in a place full of hardwood, but there must be a cleaning option.

Prior roommate had a puppy and I was traveling for six weeks and she never took it outside, just let it use the bathroom on the hardwood floor. I used a steam cleaner with materials that wouldn't bother a hardwood floor twice, and the issue was resolved.

Paint a wall (even partially). The house will smell fresh.

You’re already letting your significant other win? What the hell’s the matter with you?

On the bench this week anyway so it'll be a good little project and hopefully a nice treat for my GF when she comes home this week
