    They're only about a year old (they were feral kittens when I found them) so they only really make it to the end of the block before the dogs spook them. I usually bring them to the tree after as a...

    Hot Take: bramble edition

    I've seen a catagory on this forum that has devil's claw listed as a quasi carnivorous plant, so why not include other plants that are known to snare animals? I've seen multiple reports that thick...
