Cacti are pretty amazing sometimes. This one got its tiny pot knocked around by the cats, so that I had no idea where it had even gone. It did get sun where I found it, but no water for probably a year. The couple of broken-off pads were looking particularly shriveled, but I decided to stick them down in the soil and hope they’ll root.

I know they’re adapted to quickly slurp up whatever water they get access to, but this is still pretty amazing. I just repotted it yesterday afternoon, and already it’s looking pretty good. Well, other than the fluffy cat hair I couldn’t get all brushed off… ;)
