Caterpillar update time – week 2

Saturday 15th June – I can see our pupating caterpillar moving from the underside of his home.  I picked the glass jar up earlier to remove the uneaten Hawthorn leaves and I could see the cocoon moving quite a lot.  Guess our caterpillar is making himself at home within his casing.  It’s still quite fascinating and Monkey asks to look at it every day.

No real further action to report this week,  It would appear that part of the caterpillar was discarding in the pupating stage, but it’s still in the cocoon – must ask Guru Gramps about that when I Skype him next.

Let’s see if we get further movement next week, Guru Gramps thinks we have a few more weeks to wait until our moth emerges – perhaps we should run ‘A guess the date’ comment fest?  What do you think?  I’m going to go for 4th July – Independence Day and also would have been my dearly missed saggy old cat’s 20th birthday, bless him.

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
