Rescued From The Cat's Claw

Two days ago, I picked my daughter up from school and brought her home.  As we pulled up into the driveway, she noticed a Monarch butterfly on the cement.  It looked like the family cat had just pounced on it and was about to again.  We jumped out quickly and rescued the butterfly.  She had emerged from her chrysalis that day, but her wings were not fully dry.  The cat had probably disturbed her.  Anyway, we got her, brought her inside and fed her.  She rested for 24 hours, and then we released her.  This brings our total Monarchs raised to 2,071.

Happy Monarching!
