    Damn... That's pretty harsh :P

    So far I only have some bite marks in my phal leaves, lost 3 phal flowers off 1 plant and the lid shaped petal on my Paphiopedilum... That one made me cry :P

    She is deffinently a lioness! But her love for orchids is half of the reason why she has the initials PIA! On top of that she has thoroughly trained our little boy on how to eat orchids. Sorry to hear about your flowers. It's always a shame to lose flowers to the mouth of a feline!

    Cats definitely train their underlings!

    But to eat an entire Schomb flower(s) and spike? You must save on cat food, Aaron!

    I'd definitely use a pepper spray on one or two you intentionally bring into the house. I doubt she'd ever nibble again after that. Just consider the flowers sacrificial blooms in the cause of a longer term peace!

    See... that is the fun thing.... they always have food sitting out for them. I have tried pepper, ect ect ect.... She is very smart! She'll just smell the plant to tell if there is something on it. Needless to say..... she will never be my greenhouse kitty!
