    One should never underestimate the capabilities of a drunk or a cat, but I don't think either are involved in this. If the smell is still there after all the rinsing I did yesterday and the airing out that's happening now, I'll definitely be repotting. What a rotten time of year for that, though.

    I assume there's no flower on the oreophila?

    My aunt cleaned the house from top to bottom because she thought her cat had sprayed somewhere. It turned out the S.x catesbaei I gave her had a flower!

    Your are certainly on to something there. Flowers from Sarracenia alata and flava and their hybrids have a strong feline urine smell. People discribe the odors differently.

One individual noted the classic domestic cat urine smell noted in Schnell (1978), while others reported odors of turpentine, "Opium" perfume, fruit, mango leaves or a bitter smell! It is interesting to note the variety of odors reported. I could detect a turpentine odor but could equate this with the spring meadow or fresh odor detected by others. I have detected a reduced domestic cat urine odor associated with a fresh scent. Thus the flower odor of S. alata would seem to be unique, although possibly possessing similarities to S. flava.
