I am a simple man. I just want to watch a caterpillar pupate.
Hello,would you like to come and live with me. I just want to do experiments on you and take photographs.
This is Treacle, my new pet.
There is a little pot of wet earth in it to help keep her greens fresh. I can’t put them in water in case she falls in and drowns. I expect that I will have to buy her fresh flowers every day until she pupates.
I have added sticks for her to climb on and plenty of nettles. I have explained that here she will be safe from birds and those nasty wasps that want to lay eggs in her and that when she is a butterfly I will let her go again. I think that she likes her new home.
It will be like in the “Lassie” films, Lassie wasn’t always the same dog you know?
