two questions

1) a few plants that i ordered from michigan bulb company came in over the weekend and they look awful! i'm a novice gardener, but i know it can't be a good sign that my plants were yellow when i opened the box! is this common with michigan bulb company? 2) i have a rather nosy cat that likes to jump inside my larger houseplants and use the bathroom. i read somewhere that soaking cotton balls in oil of cloves and putting them 1/4" deep around the edge of the container helps keep curious felines away - does this work and/or do any of you have any suggestions for keeping my naughty cat away? thanks!
