While I am not entirely sure what does neutralize cat urine. I have had some problems with my cats missing the outside latrine. I do know that cat urine is acidic.A normal range being 6.0 to 6.5. I believe lime or baking soda would be the more appropriate pH balancer. Considering that all plants are different in their pH preference, but most can survive an neutral (7) to neutralize you wouldn't need to much. Use some pH strips to continue checking your progress as you flush and neutralize. I haven't had to much success with curbing their desire to keep their connection with the dirt but my plants are still alive..  

Good luck!
