    LOL. Louis is a cutie--and looks very well fed--orchids must be very nutritious! I'll look at the picture again, but sure looks like Pat is trying to strangle him! :-)

    That is one FABULOUS cat he's enormous! Luckily mine has never shown any interest in any of my houseplants. I have loads of catmint in the garden, and all the neighbours cats! Judi

    Louis is a little innocent cat... he has recently turned his attention to a Boston Fern

    He's 8 month's old, and looks pretty big... my g/f was the strangler in the other pic... here's another pic of him now conquering her

    Amazing, I don't see one bit of cat hair on her black shirt! My cat can't walk thru the room without hair all over my clothes.

    Umm.. did anyone else think that Pat's girlfriend has a really hairy elbow? Or is that your knee Pat? As your little flower-muncher is still quite young, there's a good chance he'll grow out of it. It's such a shame that they lose a lot of their bouncing around the room enthusiasm, but can mean that your sofa survives

    He just loves plants! He was munching on a sporing fern tip I collected of Acrostichum danaeifolium (Florida Leather Fern), so now he is going for fern "delicacies" (rather than plain old Boston Fern).

    He was unfortunately declawed recently, so he won't be tearing up furniture. Declawing is really horrible, and cats can be trained not to scratch anything but their post or mat...
