    Dang cats!

    Ahh! Life is grand! Except for feral cats. They have invaded the neighborhood, and love to drink the water out of the sarracenia tubs. I caught one at it just this morning. Knocked over a VFT pot in its water tray while trying to get away from a shouting MADMAN!! The madman looked a lot like me!!!!!!! Anyone with a Venus Cat Trap get in touch with me. My bow will be the next thing I will try----maybe not. Havahart live capture traps may be a better answer.

    Ugh... I always cringe when I see thread topics like this. I guess it could've been worst, and the feral beast could have eaten the plant. Was the vft damaged at all?

    He already knocked the pot over twice before, and I thought it had to be raccoons, but they would have done more damage. When I caught the little creep creeping among the tubs trying to keep his feet dry, I knew then the raccoons could not climb up on the tables. I put the fear of madmen into him with a rock following his retreating butt! I missed. Later today, on the side of the house, hiding in the lantana, there he was!!!! I didn't miss this time. He left the yard------FAST!! I see him again, I won't be so nice as to just scare him off.

    I haven't put my CPs outside yet, but what will the squirrels do? They can move my moms plants around pretty good, occasionally I'll find some plants in the opposite side of the yard.

    Hey Bugweed, check with Ozzy. If I recall correctly, he had a problem with some of his larger plants and the neighborhood pets a couple years ago. He may still have a few plants he could give you.

    Its funny.. I never have any problems with the neighborhood cats at all. Sometimes they drink from the water trays but that is all. Now my OWN cat... well that is another story
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.
