Date Notes: 
I found this on my kitchen floor last night, the cat was playing with it. I saved it so I could find out what it is, turns out it is a Giant Leopard Caterpillar! Not sure what to do with it, trying to find out what to put it in/on and how to feed it. I understand they can be difficult to bring to metamorphosis successfully through the winter until the Spring.
