Judging by the first photo Rob, it looks like she has just found out how much it cost and you were caught trying to make a quick escape by the back-door with it !!!

It is an impressive specimen indeed, is it really as big as it looks (or being held nearer to the camera making it appear bigger?)

Beautiful flower, healthy looking plant and only needs just 3 flowers to make an impression.

that is stunning Rob! I have a Walkeriana "best grower" that I have had for 5 years, that is refusing to flower, any advice? I treat this plant exactly the the same as my other catts which all flower for me (laelia gouldiana, catt maxima, catt intermedia, etc) Dry winter rest on south facing window, outside in full light but not direct sun in summer with plenty of water, reduced watering from October. Many thanks!
