Don't laugh at my cactus!

Don't laugh at my cactus!

This poor cactus survived a devastating cat attack two years ago. It lived, but has grown this way ever since. Basically the cat nearly snapped it in half. I think it's grown together at the break, but I'm not sure.

I hope the cat was all right. It's very spiny ...
I'm pleased to know it survived though :o)

The cat is fine. They somehow are able to dig the little cacti up by the roots and toss them about.

I'm expecting a Thelocactus bicolor from eBay to arrive this week. It's cold hardy to single digits so probably it will be safe from the cats outside. ?

I've got one of those. The flowers are beautiful :o)
I bring it in for the winter, because it is so wet here, that it would surely rot ...
