Krys:I don't have a Venus Fly-trap and am not sure how to reply
in Internet. If yours eats the cat, please send me a sucker.
I did review a book on "Plants that eat Animals" where it says:
Keep wet. Do not use tap-water, only rain-water, do not wet the
leaves, use sphagnum around the pot. Keep frost-free. I cannot
see much about sun or shade, so I'd keep them - maybe not very
strong sun, subdued. Have some flies fly around. If none are around 
occasionaly feed only one or two leaves with lean raw beef (not
the cat, silly - but Mcdonalds best! - but raw!)
	That's what it says. JULIUS is in no way responsible
if the darn cat or the Venus Fly trap dies.  Luck!
