Best way forward with water damaged iPhone 6S?

My iPhone 6S got wet during a rainy hike two days ago, and despite my efforts to dry it out so far, I still see moisture under the front camera lens and the screen is having major issues. I do not have AppleCare+. Can you help me think through my options for either repairing or replacing my phone? Specific questions below the fold. [more inside]

Need to plant some ground cover in a wet soggy area in the yard.

We live in East Tennessee, zone 6 in planting. The area is a creek that is low sometimes but most always very wet, can not get a lawn mower in that area or it gets stuck, weed eating is being done but I really don't like disturbing the wildlife (frogs, crawdads, etc). [more inside]

What do you feed a finicky cat?

My cat was perfectly fine eating wise until she was 6 months and got spay surgery. I feel that now she is very different- stopped eating dry food and she only eats maybe 1 can of hills I/d gastrointestinal prescription diet per day. That if I force feed her with a spoon. I tried forti flora and even heating up her food. It only helps so much. She does eat a little but simply not enough for her age/ weight. How do I get her to eat more or not be such an ordeal every single feeding time? I did set up feeding times evening and mornings and nothing in between . What else should I put in food to entice her to eat or what type of canned food did you try?
