I started w/17 cats on 8/26. Lost one on the 3rd day. All was well until yesterday, all are in the process of doing the chrysalis thing. The cat had 'buttoned' fine. When it shed its outer skin, it was wiggling to discard the 'cat skin', instead of the skin falling, the chrysalis fell. I happened to be there (quite by chance) and tried to help. I pcked up the chrysalis (terrified on how I would reattach it), but it had broken its new green layer of protection and it was oozing a green plasma. It was downhill from there. I lost it. Did this ever happen to anyone out there? How do they attach the chrysalis to boards? I have seen this at butterfly sanctuaries, but never looked close enough (didn't think about it). The very thin black extension looked to 'thin' to use a straightpin. Thanks for comments shared.
