    Well, that is about an eighteen hour drive from where we are Julie (at lest!), so I don't think that field trip will happen any time soon

    OK, off to plant some seeds....

    Ehhh, I was eating one and there were all of these seeds....I couldn't help it. I know sometimes they irradiate these things...I figure I'll either get nothing or I'll end up with monstrous cat eating blooms.

    well, I figured that since my cats like to graze on plants (but they'd better not tough my orchids...that's right Azrael and Trouble, I'm pointing at you!), its only fair when plants fight back

    Actually both my kids (one's an Abyssinian the other is a Maine Coon Cat) are both well behaved, and so far, my plants have tolerated them.

    An Abyssinian and a Maine Coon? Thats about as different as cats get, except maybe for the hairless one.... Must be quite a pair.

    Now the name Azrael - means.......?

    Azrael is arabic, and in the Qur'an is the Angel of Death...she's a little demon...cute, but evil..lol. Actually they are quite a handful. Both are fairly talkative, I guess common to their repective breeds. Mr Trouble the Abyssinian is the 'hangin-out cat'...reading, watching zombie movies which he seems to particularly enjoy. Azrael is the curl up in your lap, giving adoring looks and then munch on your hand cat. She apparently like to watch violence on TV. Whether or not this is truly the case, or just me imposing my errant human observations on my cats' personalities...I don't know.
