I was so excited to go outside and look for eggs and see a large cat on my milkweed. Usually, they are nowhere to be found due to predators. I bought it in but have no idea if I am supposed to be keeping it separate from the cats that I'm raising from eggs. Any other precautions?

I'd keep it separated from the eggs and smaller caterpillars, they will accidentally eat them. But, also keep it separate due to possible fly problems.
