I too brought home caterpillars but my folks made me put therm back so they could become butterflies!!! (Anyone ever read Hope for the Flowers?) - I also brought home a mole once (sighhhhhh!) and collected snakes, the littke green and brown ones. My mom did not mind snakes though but they stayed outside. I still have one who visits every summer - He is called Snavily and I devise stories about him to tell children who are going thru difficult procedures so they can concentrate on Snavily's tribulations and adventures rather than their own. The other day I did a bone marrow extraction while explaining Chelsea, my Sphynx who likes to climb everybody and evrthing's latest adventures. The sleepy child wanted to know more about the cat when she woke up again - I have created another "monster" one might say,
