cattlover, it sounds like your plant is drying up, either because of too much water that rotted the roots, or not enough of it. Don't overwater to try to compensate. I don't know what your conditions are, but to get the plant back to its feet, you'll need to supply some humidity. Easiest way to do that is to put your plant in a plastic bag, tie it, and leave it in bright shade for a while without watering so you don't rot more roots. No bright light or you'll boil it! Alternatively, you might try using a rooting hormone (see the Superthrive thread http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...read.php?t=925 for details). Catts really need their roots to dry off (to dryness, not dampness) between waterings. If you go with the bag procedure, leave the plant in there for 2-3 weeks.
Do you have a digital camera? If you take a pic of the plant and post it, that usually helps diagnose things better and faster.
