Number: 30

We continue to discover tiny cats as well as mature cats ready to form their chrysalis. My husband continues to locate wild milkweed stems so we can feed them. We are almost out of food. The cats are beginning to nibble on Asclepius bare stems. We have been overwhelmed with cats this year also. I will need to plant additional Asclepius seeds next spring to serve as food if this continues. I thought I had more than enough food this year, however
I need more. It’s so wonderful! We have chrysalis’s formed everywhere, even on facia above our wall joints and back doors near our garden! The adult cats have been climbing our brick walls to locate a spot under overhangs to continue their metamorphosis. We have been checking for spiders as well as any other threats to their safety.
