    There are very few eggs or cats surviving outside at the moment at my place in Hamilton, so whenever I see cats at any stage I bring them in to raise, with good success so far. However, the other night I brought in some first instar cats & put them in with some slightly larger cats. In the morning the smallest cats, plus the leaves they were on had disappeared & only the original larger cats were there, roaming around looking for more food! So now I separate the smaller ones until they are larger. One learns a bit more with each year of raising Monarchs!
