Oh, quite touching, just a had little 6 year old boy at my front door asking if I had seen his pet caterpillar because it had built itself a home a few weeks ago and when he looked today the home was open and the caterpillar had gone.
I explained to him as best I could in words, etc, that he'd understand, that his caterpillar buit his home so he could live in while he change from a caterpillar into a Butterfly or a Moth and that's what caterpillars do.
I hope he understood, well at least he looked like he did as he smiled and walked out of my front gate.

This is the USA. That would never happen here.

What, you mean you don't have caterpillars or 6 year old children in the U.S.....LOL.


That's a sweet story. I absolutely loved your response. That child asked the right person. A much better answer than "my cat probably ate it"
