Caterpillar house.

Laurie called and asked if I'd like a caterpillar for the girls to watch. Of course I said yes! They not only got us a caterpillar and milk weed but Uncle Chris made a nice home for them.
There are 3 caterpillars and they are growing like weeds.

Jerzie is fascinated by how much they poop.

They climb from the branches to the milkweed and back again.

This pic was Monday

and this one today, Wed.

When I was telling Jerzie about them she add, 'and they will turn into butterflies.' I'm not sure where she heard this but it stuck with her. We'll keep you posted.
Thanks Uncle Chris and Aunt Laurie!

Interesting pets :-)

Remember we did this...so much fun. Make sure the mouth of the container is not so big that the cats fall in and drown.

Cool idea! Never thought of bringing them in to observe their growth. Lord knows I have plenty of them thriving in my gardens, it would be easy to "select" a few. Can't wait to see more pics of the progression. Thanks for sharing.

What pretty caterpillars! I hope your granddaughter gets to see them turn into butterflies.

I am thinking about getting some sleeves to put on plants outdoors to protect the caterpillars. I need to get through some medical bills first.
