Could someone please ID these cats. I'd also like to know the name of the vine they are on. I saw something offered at a nursery recently as a passion flower that looked very similar to this vine. I have always considered this a weed.

I believe the vine is Passiflora lutea, a native with fairly inconspicuous flowers so I'll let this one stay.
