There seems to be so many eggs this year! After collecting 15 today I have decided that I just can't take them ALL in anymore .I just don't have the space.
Finding egg free leaves to feed the cats is the hardest part! I have options, though. Since I have my garden here, a local wild patch and the school waystation.
I want to grow some milkweed in an enclosed outdoor environment.
This way I could use that milkweed to feed the cats I collect.I have been lobbying my husband to build me something.
Cleaning the critter keepers is fairly easy. I seem to get into a groove,I just gather everything I need in one place and do it in esembly line fashion.I keep a little diaper pail-like garbage can near by.
Changing/feeding sessions take about 15 minutes twice a day.I do it once in the morning and once right before I go to bed.
Right now is the calm before the storm....I have newly formed chrysalises and newly hatched eggs. So I have at least a week off
