Re: kmrsy's photo/now catnip

Wish I could plant those plants, but since I've got a bird/butterfly sanctuary going here - I can't plant anything that would attract stray cats into my yard.  Not everyone keeps their cat on a tether when they're outside like I do Sugar.  Even she isn't allowed out back.  Since she was feral, her hunting instincts are just too keen.  But she loves her cat grass (indoors) and that God-awful Bermuda outdoors.  Even if mama doesn't let her catch birds!
