Say hello to my little friend

Say hello to my little friend

Postby Icon » 04 Jun 2013, 16:43

This little fellow is making quite a rumble in my house. He is huge, like hand size, but the cats pay no attention to him. But he tends to jump around and appear at the darnest places... unexpectedly. Not funny.

Adorable. I bet that guy combined with the cats means no cockroaches for you.
This is a highly proper signature.

Dunno about roaches, but mosquitos there are none. :)

As to the cats, no way, Their Lordships do not chase roaches. Their royal paws are too clean to dirty themselves -please read above dripping with sarcasm. My cats do not hunt, period. Their bowls are never empty, and it takes too much effort to leave their cozy bed.

The trees and walls around my place are full of them. One fell on my arm the other day, they heard me screaming in Timbuktu.

Given the title, hadn't the OP been a woman, I would have never clicked on this thread.

Cool gecko though! :)

I'm surprised the cats leave it alone. We managed to rescue a gecko that got mauled (50/50 whether he made it or not, but he did scuttle off) and had to clean up some remains once. Might be best to put the little guy outside if you see the cats starting to show interest. Maybe yours are just super-lazy.

I am far more worried that the geeko will be "smoked" by Bobby, my Maltese. He chases butterflies in the park.

The cats? Doubtful. It takes a pigeon to attract their interet. Anything smaller is beneath them Majesties.

I always thought these wall geckos are adorable. I once saw two giant ones fight each other. The most of have seen their kind move. In the end they grabbed each other with their fore-limb, and realized now there's no way to stay on the wall. They make a pretty big noice (i guess that's how they scream) as they fell to the floor.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

Yep, noisy, that they are. You may not see them, but you can surely hear them.

Told you about the time one smuggled itself into my office?
