Alas, poor Yurick, we hardly knew thee

I was thinking about all the animals living with us and started to count them. I was startled to realize that there are thirteen of them.

Dogs:
1. Nellie

Cats:
1. Queen
2. Pandora
3. Buddha
4. Trixie

Fish:
1. Cuter (Betta)]
2. little pink one
3. another little pink one
4. Plecostomus

Snails:
1. Slimey

Rats:
1. Penny

Birds:
1. Lollipop
2. Echo

*Temporary boarders:
5 half-dead butterflies
Which brings me to the next topic...

I don't think our butterflies are going to make it. One of them is still twitching, but it's not looking good. I have had to go in and rescue them all from the sugar water-soaked tissues I was instructed to give them. They keep getting stuck in it, and just lay there and flap. That noise is driving the cats mad, especially Trixie, the only one with a real prey drive.

I wish it had been warmer, so I could have let them out to fend for themselves. (And lessen my guilt a little.)

Oh no! I have an idea. Could you maybe bring them to a greenhouse at a garden center and let them go there? Or buy some cut flowers for them to feed on?

They started dying as soon as their wings were dry. I couldn't get them to just land and drink...they would flap around and just were pitiful. I guess butterflies were not meant to hatch out in a container.
