I'm sure. No old women that have cats in houses, boats, RV's et al, ever have a clue that they and their houses, boats, RV's et al have a distinctive "cat" stench, just as old moonshiners have a distinctive "corn" stench (tho' one is endurable and the other not). In the case of cats, it's the ammonia that burns out their olfactory nerves, I'm sure.
N'any case, don't get me wrong. I like cats. Medium rare with coleslaw and a side of fries particularly.
If you're not "susie screwdriver" yet, work
one it or find another hobby. In the mean time, follow the instructions offered to you earlier (or save the bandwidth) and you'll resolve your problem. Dealing with a pump involves disconnecting two hose clamps, four mounting screws, one electrical plug
, and 6 cover screws over an impulse damper. Cleaning involves--cleaning. Clean water and a toothbrush seem to work
well. Follow up with previously offered advise/instruction as to raw water lines and your tank. Once the business is cleaned up and you've added the sediment filter (2 microns works) and, if you are wise, an activated charcoal filter, as previosuly suggested, add 1-1/2 Oz of unscented household bleach per 50 gallons of water to you tanks
as an antibacterial measure (and, of course, keep the cat litter out, or better yet, get a Freeze Dried cat that doesn't need cat litter at all).
