I want one of these. Partly because I’m not great at taking care of animals in the first place and partly because I know my cat will go chimp crazy over it.
Irresponsible pet lovers take note. Introducing – a butterfly in a jar.
Not a real butterfly, of course, which is good because people who catch real butterflies have a little bit of Charlie Sheen in them.
One of my favorite online stores – Perpetual Kid.com – sells them. They’re battery-powered, so you can keep one as a pet and not feel guilty when you forget to neglect to feed it because you have wet nails or “The Bachelor” is on or you went out boozing the night before.
When you tap the jar, the butterfly flutters around inside what looks like an old Ball jar. I’m leaning toward the Blue Morpho, but the Monarch and Pink Morpho look awesome too. Perpetual Kid has a video of it. Follow that link!
