My question too, when do the monarchs actually begin their migration south? Do we only want to tag the migrators - if so, how do I know my cats are the migrator generation? I see you can order eggs all the way into October. Will the October monarchs make it all the way down to Mexico in time to overwinter?
I'm waiting for my tags, apparently there was a large increase of people wanting tags this year. Does that mean the monarch population is up?
Since I've started doing this, my neigbors have commented that they've never seen so many monarchs or butterflies during this time of year. Either they are just more aware because they know I'm raising cats, or as I would hope is the case - the monarch population is up.
