            Last week, we released some butterflies from a kit of Zelie's into the backyard after they hatched out of their cocoons. We would've left them in their little mesh habitat a few days longer, if not for:
1. They didn't seem to be eating much of the recommended sugar water, and 2. The cats were intent on having themselves some young butterfly snacks! The poor little monarchs were knocked over several times before they were put out into 'the wild'. Hopefully they're faring better outside than they were indoors!
