Some things just don't bother people that much. I am sure that the house I grew up in smelled. Scrape the manure off your boots before you came in and you were good to go.

Make the wife happy I say...sometimes you gotta let her win one, anyway. She'll love you more for it (wink, wink).

If someones house stinks that bad I wouldn't go back. I know people with pets and it smells fine. Then again I used to know a crazy cat lady and her house was disgusting.

As a young lad I was a plumbers helper. Boy howdy you ran into some real hum dingers.

Hmmm...

It looks like that fancy AdSense technology works. The borders are chock full of ads for cat litter when I view the page.

Must be time to change the litter box. I wonder how it detects the smell?

Not at me, as far as I could tell. She and I have one of those "tell it like it is" friendships.
The older dog died soon afterwards, and then the second oldest 1 year later. SHe still has the 3rd dog.
I don't go to her house anymore for a variety of reasons besides the dog thing. It was just too much for my sinuses and me.
She put her house on the market while all 3 dogs were still alive, and is still trying to sell it.
