Say hello to my little friend

I was hoping he had managed to cling to one of the dishes before being swallowed or maybe something along the way down. Alas, even as I stopped the water, I waited in silence for a little head to appear. No such luck.

Maybe yes, a la Nemo, he'll come out the other way... or out the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Poor thing. I was delighted to find a gecko in my kitchen the other day... but haven't seen it since. How did you manage to keep your cats away from your friend for so long? I wonder if my cat left it alone.

Nothing. As said, most of the time, roaches, moths, geckos... they all just go over their heads and they do nothing. They are 15 years old, that's 80 in human years,

Guys and gals, I really need help in buiding a geecko watering station. We had another unfortunate demise by drowning. Any suggestions? Poor thing, he was huge, but fell in a soup bowl with some water at the bottom... not the prettiest sight early in the morning.

The ball'n'chain managed to do this to our resident lizardy thing in the garden. He is resident no more.

I had to explain to her about frog ladders.

A frog ladder is basically a branch that you put into anything that frogs might otherwise get trapped in. Anything that froggy feet can grip will do the job. One end rests in the water and the other end rests on the rim. Frog falls in, frog climbs out.

Works with geckos too, I guess.

There are reptile pet stores around, perhaps they can offer the best advise. They have one of those in Hsinchu, where it's all reptiles, from turtles to snakes to geckos. Surely they have one in Taipei as well.

:oops: But, but... I did not do it on purpose. :cry:

However, as a reasonably undamaged specimen, he will live on as part of my colleague's taxidermic display.

Thatnks. I'll look for one in Xindian. That did not occur to me, but given the endangered current population -though it is difficult to concentrate when you are watching TV and something is scurring about just by the corner of your eye. No, my cats do not scurry. They crash noisily. And Bobby carries a bell on his collar.

Oh, I know. Just sayin', you can't stop them falling in, but you can help them get out.

Just get some bits of climb-able wood or plastic and drop them into any pot that animals are likely to get stuck inside. They'll figure it out by themselves.
