peewee’s big adventure

Last Friday I had two rebel caterpillars that somehow managed to escape.  My daughter found one of them and put it back.  I didn’t realize that there was another one missing until Saturday morning when I was sitting on the couch and looked to my left and saw a caterpillar hanging from a houseplant leaf.  Since it was already hanging upside down, it was too late to take it off and put it back with the others, so I had to leave it.  It formed a chrysalis later that day, and now I’ll have to keep a close eye on it and hope I can get the butterfly safely outside before my cats find it.  The caterpillar had to go down the side of the entertainment center, cross 11 feet of floor and crawl up the side of the end table and onto the plant.  Quite a trek for such a little fella.

It traveled from the far upper left to the far right.

Now we wait…
