    I think you are headed to heartbreak. I do not know that butterflies have a good recovery rate. Not sure they have much of a lifespan either.

    I am sure your heart is in the right place though, good luck.

    Get a cotton ball and soak it in sugar water! Whats wrong with it? We have a butterfly garden and take some of the chrysilises inside to hatch them!!

    dont worry im expecting the worst. its missing a leg and cant fly so i know it wont last too long but still. its either die in one piece in my house or die being eaten by a bird.

    Aw thats so sad. Thats nice of you to help it

    Awww... a butterfly as a pet. Think of how cute that could be. You walk around and the butterfly follows you around. It sits on your shoulder and wants to be pet. That would be something to see
