    Matchmakers need to have lot of e-VEAL steak! Yummy!!!

    I don't wanna to be on a vege diet! If I like that too much, I am afraid I would make salad out of my orchids! Hehehe! I need all of the proteins for swimmin', runnin', weight trainin', bikin' ... Vege diet would be bad for my look in Speedo!!! In fact, right now, in preparing for my work-out routine, I am chowing down lot of proteins ...

    Default C. Jose Marti 'Mother's Favorite' (Bob Betts x Bow Bells)

    Very floofy white catt! It was named after the famous Cuban poet (1853ľ1895). Very pretty!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default My floofy cat!

    Mildred has bloomed! Two HUGE beautiful flowers. Two more buds just broke their sheath, and one more sheath coming.

    I was trying to get a picture, and this pest kept playing with the strap on the camera, until I agreed to take her picture.

    She's a sweetheart, but when she's bored I can't get any work done! She likes to sit in front of the keyboard while I'm working. It's a pain, but it's hard to get upset with her purring away the whole time...

    Default Here's my other floofy catt

    I'm in luv! And it's all Hoa's fault...

    You can see the next two buds, just in front of the leaf on the upper left. The flowers are 7"! (Don't mind me - this is my first big floofy catt to bloom. I have two others that are getting close...)

    I love both types of Cat(t)s!... Now, the challenge is Getting Mildred to ReBloom! Lovely blossoms on that one.

    Yup! Having an FCC-awarded clone certainly lessens the fear of a dog. And no one wants a catt that turns out to be a dog...

    Rebloom...right! First things first! The other two floofs in sheath are species plants that I've had for two years. There were supposedly NBS, but many of the plants I bought in that purchase are just blooming now for the first time. I figure if after two years of cohabitation with moi, they decide to bloom, then reblooming a hybrid ought to be easy!

    Hi Julie,

    Isn't your cat(t) ahem I mean the really really fluffy (not the floofy) one adorable? She just wants some attention. Pet her for me, will you?

    But then, your Mildred blooms are so gorgeous, how can you not be in LUV? Will the fluffy one willing to share the LUV with the floofy one, who knows?

    I was in love with Mildred myself when she just emerged from her cocoon and showed her beauty at first glimpse of light, pristine and aloof as cold white snow yet her lip burns with red hot passion! Hope that you enjoy it.

    Many many cheers to you, Julie! Hope your finger healed soon!
    Hoa.

    PS. BTW, blooming catt species are similar to hybrids. Once they bloom at your conditions, they will bloom again, I am quite sure! Just don't kill them first!

    Default Shots from our live (nearly) Teka-cam!

    Fluffy cat (aka Teka) has assumed the position. Her winter one, anyway. Asleep on the radiator! (I'd crawl up with her if I could - it was cold and windy here today.) I'll deliver said pets when she stirs.

    Thanks, Hoa! And I'll try not to kill the floofy catts...
