Plant Names Relating to Cats

Page One

Many plants have names that are derived from the anatomy of the cat. Some plants have hook-like thorns that  resemble the claws of a cat. Others have an aromatic odour, which has a strange fascination for cats. Some plants seem to have little reason for being named as they are, and do not appear to relate to cats at all.
