I've had my cats for over 2 years now and I just discovered that one of my cats has decided to start using the ficus tree pot as its litter box.
They don't eat the leaves or do anything like that, but this peeing is awful. I have a couple of questions and I'm hoping someone will know the answers.
1) Is it hopeless for the ficus tree now? In other words, is death inevitable since cat urine is like amonia?
2) If its salvagable, do they sell a type of cover or lid for the pot (with a cut out for the bark of the ficus tree)??? Don't know if this exists, but if it doesn't, I think I'll patent it! lol
3) If its salvagable but such a lid/cover does not exist, does anyone have any suggestions to avoid this from happening again????
4) Do I need to repot it???
The ficus tree has some sentimental value because a good friend of mine gave it to me when he moved to California. He said that ficus trees don't do well with moves. And he's had this tree since he was like 12 or something. I would hate to have it die on me and its not like I can just send it to him in California!
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
