|Help and advise requested please! I have a poor flamingo plant that was doing wonderful when first brought into my home, and within the last 2-3 weeks has been slowly dying more and more. I just discovered the likely cause when I got up close and discovered my cat must be peeing in the soil because it REEKS of cat pee. Is there any hope for my plant? What can I do to restore its health and keep my cat from peeing in the soil?
Reno, Nevada (Zone 6a)

|Not having a cat, I cannot suggest a way of keeping the cat out of the plant.
For the plant though, set it on the porch or in a bathtub and run a LOT (many, many gallons) of water through it and flush as much of the pee out as possible. Cat urine is essentially a fertilizer, and right now there is so much that it is burning the plant.
