I'm Jacqui's friend - Gillie, with the house butterfly who can't fly. Had him for a month now and I pick fresh flowers for him each day and as Jacqui says, take him outside so he can forage for himself. I keep him on a table with a mosquito net around him as I have 3 curious cats.
I have 2 female monarchs that have just emerged and as Jacqui says, I'd love to know if I could get him to mate with one of these.... then at least he could die happy
Good luck with your little one
