Softy Update

The caterpillar lives! I thought for sure we'd trap this thing and it would die of either boredom or not enough food and air......well, now the silly thing has started to spin its silk!.....stay tuned. 

Daddy and Anna have been taking good care of the new "pet" out its "cage" and giving it new leaves every couple days. Now I guess we leave it alone and let it spin itself into a moth (I don't think this is the butterfly kind of caterpillar). 

You can't actually see Softy in the picture, because he's/she's/its spun itself up near the lid. However, you can see the cob webby silk stuff.
