Maybe with climbers you could try some grasses, plenty of variety in colour and textures, they would add interest and thrive in poor soil conditions,

Cat poo is awful, especially if you don't see it and put the lawnmower over it 

WE have a water pistol and a pea shooter, used to dispatch dried peas to just in front of the cat which usually makes them scarper, good fun too

Agree with Fidgetbones,you will be surprised how many shoots you will get and they are so easy to propagate, don,t overwater, and keep out of direct draughts. If its now dark green I think your plant will be fine.

A miniature bookcase and chair,painted pink, and made by my Dad and Grandad.with a cushion covered in a remnant of one of her flowery dresses made by Mum.

I can also remember Mum making miniature outfits for my Tressy doll as the shop bought ones were too expensive.
