Fly away, high away, bye-bye

The big day has finally arrived! I got up early and got ready to release my Painted Lady butterfly pets. I am a little bit sad about this.
Mommie, are you sure we have to let them go? She said Yes, I must follow the directions.
I will give my butterflies a final kiss goodbye. I am whispering to them "Be happy and fly good!"
The Habitat is open so they are free to go. Goodbye my friends! I hope you have some babies.
This one stayed for an extra second to say goodbye. Then he joined his friends.
I am watching them go with a heart filled with happiness and a little bit of sadness. I think I done good.

katztales said...

You're doing such a nice thing there. And you didn't even bat one with your paw! Now that's super sweet of you...

vettech said...

I am fairly sure my cats would have made chasing and swatting down those butterflies the mission du jour. Those butterflies were pretty, but not nearly as cute as you in that pink harness. Where did you get it?

The Whiskers and Purrs Gang said...

Dearest Daisy,
We think you done good, too! We is REAL proud of you!

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers and Purrs Gang

Daisy said...

Vettech, that is my fancy Puppia harness and leash. I won it in a contest! I am very lucky!

Poppy Q said...

Daisy you and your mommie have big big hearts, and sweetie I think you did a really really good job in looking after your flutterbies and setting them free.

I am glad that none of these pets got deaded.

Smooches.

Sweet Praline said...

You did great! I am so proud of you for helping to raise them from caterpillars to beautiful butterflies and then having the courage to release them. I did notice, however, there was a "leash" attached. Hmmmm. Do you think mom didn't trust you to let them go?

What next?

Henson Ray said...

Great pictures, as usual. Daisy, you certainly have some interesting outings.

Alexi said...

Daisy, you done real well. What a wonderful foster parent you are. The painted ladies were beautiful!

Your pal,

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Fly away, flutter-bys, fly! How exciting Daisy! Are you a Mommy now, or an Auntie?

Casbah Kitten said...

Oh Daisy, that is a little sad but you did the right thing. Maybe they will tell their babies how you took such good care of them.

Cecilia, The 2Bs & Madness said...

Bye, bye Butterflies!
Hey Daisy we want to ask you about your harness? We want to get one for Bubbles and are trying to figure out the size. We know Luxor wears a medium. What size are you? We know girls don't want to talk about things like that in public, so our e-mail is the2bsATgmailDOTcom

Furkidsmom said...

Dear Daisy,

You did a great job with your butterflies! We're very proud of you. We know it had to be sad to release them. We have a butterfly garden, but we're not allowed to go outside to see it. We watch them from the windows.

i beati said...

You surely did good and ambivalent or not - mostly good- Daisy had a new adventure. Time to write a children's book of all Daisy's adventures..

dennisthevizsla said...

You know what they say, Daisy. If you love something, set it free. That way you can chase it around the yard when it comes fluttering by again in the future.

Aoise said...

Just fink Daisy, thems flutterbyes can go and haf a wonderful life now thanks to you.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

oh Daisy, what a nice thing you did. butterflies are universally loved, so you put some love into the universe. that is a good thing.

i'm sorry you're sad, but the butterflies will come back to visit every year and so will their babies.

wow! i never realized Daisy went for walks in a harness... i wanted to get a giant rabbit that did that, but got put off getting one due to the number of ruffians who kept fighting dogs in my old "manor"...

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

You did a really great job with these pets! Fly away purrty butterflies!

Thoughts said...

Hi Daisy!!!

We have missed you so much! Our human had to have surgery so she hasn't been online in a month. We are so happy to see you again and hope you had fun letting your "flutter-bies" go free! We love to chase those things when we are outside! We hope you can come and visit us soon!

Love Theodore and Sasha
(and Benson and Gibson too!)

Maybe sometimes you can get a pet you can actually keep. At least these didn't die.

You're a terrific momma, Miss Daisy. Are you gonna get some more butterflies to raise?

Marian said...

Daisy - You did a great job with your butterflies. We know it was hard letting them go, but it will be better for all in the end. We know that Crazy Lady keeps wishing that The Big Boy (who came home after college and stayed!) would fly away so that she could let him go, too!! She says it all the time!
:o) Thomas, Phoebe and Trixie

HotMBC said...

I think you "done good" too, Daisy. You are very kind to let them go so they can be free and have a life outside the habitat.
