    Well today I was preparing to mail out some plants that I have promised to people.

    The first step was to seperate the large clump of VFTs and repot the ones I wasnt sending. Step 1 went smooth as silk, I brought in my plant, popped it out of its pot, broke off the media and seperated the individual rosettes.

    When it came time for step 2, I discovered that I did not have enough prepared soil media for my needs. I went out on the patio for 2 mins to bring in a bucketfull of peat and sand. In the 2 mins I was outside, my cat, the orange plant eating furball from hell, had eaten the traps off at least half a dozen stems. 1 plant is completely bald now, and another is lookin pretty unhappy. *sigh* Why oh why did I ever get a cat? lol

    ps. Anyone want a slightly dead orange cat? lol j/k

    Keep the cat submerged in the bathtub, and apply way more pressure than you think you need to to strangle it.

    Or take the varmint out back, and blast 'em with a shotgun.

    Sorry to hear about your plants. If that happened to me I'd be so mad I'd probably take the clippers to the cat.

    Dogs eat plants, and taste like chicken, too.
