This looks like a caterpillar of a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae, such as the common buckeye, Junonia coenia - see Junonia coenia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Junonia coenia - Buckeye -- Discover Life

If that is the case, it will not survive, as they do not overwinter in your area.

Couldn't she create a small "habitat" filled with an assortment of tasty leaves so it could eat its fill then maybe do its thing for her son? I mean.... frost has hit my region already but maybe it's not hit hers so couldn't she bring it in her garage to buy it some time so it might have a chance at migrating down south if they get another warm spell?
