Just a little addition to the story of Harpo in the last Phoenixine; to bring the story up to date. A couple of days ago I was woken about 5.30am by the sound of retching. I turned on the light to investigate and there was Harpo, being copiously sick all over my shoes. Close scrutiny of the shoes suggested that he'd eaten a leaf that disagreed with him.

I threw the shoes away.

I didn't throw Harpo away. But I was tempted...

It's a good thing you are not a heavy sleeper, imagine the effect of jamming a freshly besocked foot into a slimy shoe first thing in the morning.

I've always been amazed at how one leaf can purge a cat, yet they can spend hours chewing at a manky old rat and be quite unmoved by the experience.
