    Well I don't have a cat but the dog is so afraid of the vacuum. He runs to the edge of the yard and cowers there even though the vacuum is inside. I taught him the words "voom, voom" mean the vacuum is comming out. Anyone remember that Mazda commercial with the little kid who said "voom, Voom" that was on all last year. It was so funny because the dog would freak out ever time that was on. HE would race around the house barking.

    My dog is terrified of the vacum cleaner too. He either runs upstairs or hides under a desk.
    What even funnier is when I mow grass. He barks at the lawnmower, runs up and bites the wheel then runs away. Then he does it all over again.

    A 15 year old guy bought one of every plant I was selling at the time, VFT, D.capensis, D.capillaris and a S.purpurea.
    He went home and looked on the internet for other cp's. He sent me an email and asked if I could get him some of the other plants he saw online. I said of course. He spent over $70 more on these plants. So in all he had around $100 in the plants. That's a lot of money for a 15 year old.
    About two weeks later I saw him on online and I sent him a message that asked how his plants was doing. He messaged back they are all dead. I asked him what happened and he said his sister's cat ate them all. I told him that some may regrow from the roots. He said no, it ate the roots too. Some of the plants were almost full grown S.flavas, and other pitcher plants.

    I really felt bad for him. I offered to sell him any plant he wanted at cost. He declined and said he didn't want to get any more plants until he could keep them away from his sisters cat.
    I give my contact ifo with every plant I sell.
    If that were me, I would have introduced my sister's cat's neck to a meat cleaver, and stuck the kitty head on a pike to warn neighborhood cats.

    Ollie loves my vacuum. He loves to play with it. However I have finally taught him that the back and forth motion of it is NOT a game. I have some cute pics of him as a puppy rearing up to smack the hose. He also does that to the mower but I think he will get over after he sees it a few times this summer.

    I wish I could teach him to mow the grass...

    I wish I could teach the cats 1) not to chew my plants, and 2) to change their own litterboxes.....

    Supposedly, they can be trained to use the toilet / flush. But not my cat! Yeah, that would be a handy little trcik with all your cats and boxes! But then you'll need more toilets! Hey, I know how to fix 'em - cheap! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
