should I move the cats inside?
About four years ago, I collected the monarch eggs from a stand of wild milkweed that had taken over a garden in my front yard (which I had purposely left for them) :) That year I raised and released about 23 monarchs if I remember right.
I had to rip out all the invasive milkweed but planted several more 'tame' varieties out the back. This year I finally had a monarch discover them. After the lone visit that I witnessed, I searched the plants for eggs but was disappointed to find none, but yesterday I discovered two cats!! yay! ......even better, I found another one today. Now I am concerned about predators finding them and wondered if I can safely move them inside at this stage.....one is fairly large although not big enough to pupate yet. the others are kind of a 'medium' and a 'small' :)
advice is gratefully accepted.
this is a pic of our first monarch from that year. It was a male which my granddaughter promptly named 'Louie' :)
