It can take a year or 2 for an aloe to produce pups so don't be discouraged. They need to be a little root bound and have lots of heat and sun. Water only when the soil completely dries out.
As for the cats what can I say - I have 2 young girls that I am the humble human servant to. They are strictly inside cats and can get into serious mischief in no time. I fuss up a storm and they give me the "who me" look. Sigh. I am such a sucker for my girls and so is my big, brawny, man's man husband. The girls will curl up on his lap and he baby talks to them for hours.
IDK - I think I lost my train of thought. Oh Aloes - let the forum know how your rooting experiment goes.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown
