Response from Renée Renata And Matt:
First off, Amy and her friends were great guests and as we felt bad about the situation with the cats, we refunded the cleaning fee to them for their troubles.
Regarding the cats, they were apparently in quite a mood that weekend! As you'll see from the other reviews, we've hardly had complaints about them. We did warn Amanda and her friends that one of the kitties can be temperamental but she's not usually this bad. This is the first we've heard of them being so noisy as to keep people up. And, the litter box is in the living room, so the "cat pee smell by the wall" could have been that. We are sensitive to cat odors and regularly maintain the litter box, in fact, we make sure it has been fully changed before AirBnB guests arrive.
The sheets were indeed clean and had just been washed about a week prior. We store them in an antique wooden trunk which does have it's own unique "older" smell. But we'll address this concern moving forward by adding cedar balls to the chest to freshen things up.
We've never had an issue with our rugs slipping out from under us.....only one of them has no weaving on the bottom, so that must have been the culprit and we'll look into a solution for that.
Thanks Amanda for bringing some of these issues to our attention!
