What kind of carnivorous plant are hermles to domestice house animals
like dogs and cats. I wanted to start a venus flytrap garden in an
aquarium and was afraid of what it may do to my cat or dog. What if
the animals ate the plants??
Thank you VERY much
Is this supposed to be a lame attempt at being humorous?
I really can't believe that there would be anybody out there that naive.
There are no carnivorous plants that would be harmful to pets.
Do a google search on carnivorous plants and see the many websites on the
If the dude is growing the plants in an aquarium, how in the heck would the
animals be able to get to them to eat them in the first place?
If only there actually were plants that could eat pets (and people), the
world would most certainly be a better place!!!
Got to get me an Audrey2 too!!!
Have you never heard of pets knocking things over and sampling the flavors
thereof? Granted a Yorkie probably couldn't do it but a German Shepperd or
even a good sized mixed breed woud have no problem. Especially were they
playing with the resident cat. Even a cat could knock over a large heavy
object if the cat were one of the heavier ones. Not to mention a cat could
easily climb into the terrarium (yes even with a lid on it) and there by
sample a few plants.
How sad that you have no faith in a person's ability to train their pets to
Dogs may be the morons of the pet world but they can be trained to behave
Cats have enough sense not to go poking around into a smelly wet terrarium
full of plants.
Kids are far more likely to be the ones to mess with the terrarium.
Ha ha ha ha ha, that is probably one of the funniest things I have ever
heard. I'm sorry, have you ever been owned by a cat?
Curiosity killed the cat - and in my Max's case, didn't kill him, but got
his furry tail singed by a candle on the bathroom counter - he just had to
look out the window didn't he ;-)
Unlike you I don't take things personally. I was making a statement on how I
make use of candles with regard to my pets. As for peering into her bathroom,
"huh" is all I can come up with.
I no longer burn candles. I now have a parrot.
I don't take your observation personally :-) This was actually the first
week we had Max and he was busy getting to know the house. I was home,
candle in the bathroom and he came waltzing out into the kitchen w/what
looked like poo on the tip of his tail - I was like, great, I adopted a
positively sloppy cat-box habit cat - then I got closer and could smell the
Luckily kitty did not go up in flames, he doesn't do counter things
anymore - unless it has to do w/chicken or dried flowers or easter basket
grass or presents w/ribbon or, or, or, :-)
I never meant it to be a slam on you, so glad you didn't take it that way. I
lost my kitty "Nermal" to a fire. It was the devastation of my life. I no
longer leave candles anywhere in the house unless I'm there, but as I said it's
not an issue any more. Candles and birds are not companions. Their little
lungs are delicate. They are probably much hardier than they say in all the
literature, but I'd rather stay on the safe side.
Glad your kitty was none the worse for wear.
My friend had a swimming pool once with a "Creepy Crawley" vacuum-cleaner
installed. It would venture forth from the pool at nights and consume the
odd wayward cat and dog, and make a mess of the Peony patch.
Indeed, if the windows of the house were left open on hot humid summer
nights it would apply itself to the feverish bodies of the guests in the
most untoward fashion, to the delight of everyone.
Watch out or I just might just might use that foot to kick your fat baboon
Is that where your wannabe monkey brain is too?
Sending you off to Iraq would make this world a better place.
Where you been hiding, monkey boy? Or should I say Mr. Peepers?
Its been so long since I posted that that I gave you up for lost.
Was almost ready to have your monkey face posted on milk cartons!!!
