Monarchs in January
Crumples the Butterfly on PhotoPeach
UPDATE : Crumples is still alive and doing fine. Today's date is February 16th, and Crumples is holding out for some spring flowers.
Today is January 7, 2010 and all three butterflies are doing fine. Well fine might not be the right word. Last Saturday, I awoke to find the top of the butterfly tank collapsed in. It seems that Meow Meow has been sitting on top of the tank, and his weight must have pushed in the screen. I was dismayed to find only two butterflies in the tank. I looked at the cats who weren’t talking. Then the missing butterfly walked out from under the desk. I scooped him up, he was alive, but his wing was a bit tattered, like lace. Otherwise fine he was put back in the tank, and is doing well. We now have Crumples, Tatters, and Battty (he likes to bat his wings). I have changed their food to Strawberry Kiwi juice as well as the honey to give them some variety. They seem to like both.
