The last one is not an orchid. It is me and my buddy 'Jack'!

Yes it is a Henry Wan! Very good. It is a plant that puts on a nice show when it blooms.
Jack is one half of my "kitten krew" if you will. Rosie is the other half. She catches lizards, frogs, snakes and other odd creatures. Jack is the squeamish one. But they are great company. Here is Rose.

Rose is polydactylic which means extra toes on her front paws! Also called Hemingway Cats.
She has paws that are just like thumbs and fingers. No wonder the lizards do not stand much of a chance when it comes to getting away.
