3 more Monarch cats...
I just got back from checking on my little cat over at the job, and decided to check for more hatching eggs on the Milkweed. I found a #2 instar I missed from the first fly thru and two newly hatched cats. I immediately picked a top off a nearby mw and transferred them both onto it c a sharpened pencil. They are now all happily feasting alongside my #3 on common mw.
All my little ones at home, 4 in all, are doing fine and just entered #2 instars. I changed their mw and goaded them onto it c a toothpick. They get easier to work with as they get older.
Each mw sprig is mounted in moist floral foam on a clay saucer and covered c a wide glass vase. All four are munching on Swamp mw.
