    Default Another Classic Catt

    This is my all-time favorite green catt, the first one I ever bought. Since moving her outside this year she has rewarded me with 2 spikes, one shown below. Her color is hard to capture, it's a bit deeper green that appears on my screen, like a lovely green apple. She inherited a night time fragrance from her famous parent.... New members - can you guess what that parent is??
