It is kinda good to have cats in the house with herps.....
My house gecko escaped for over 6 months and we couldn't catch her. Then finnaly I heard my cat making a very strange cry, so I went to check it out and she had my gecko in her mouth, I told her to drop the gecko and she did, YES we finnaly caught the gecko, the downside was there was a small hole in the gecko from the cat.
That wasn't the only time that same gecko was caught by a cat.....the other time the gecko let go of his tail and it worked!
Our cats are scared of cars.......well you have to be when my moms driving....lol
