Dead Lizard


Dead Lizard

Half of this lizard was chomped on but as you can see, it wasn't all eaten - in addition, it WASN'T because Pinball was hungry. He is free form fed and has food in his bowl at all times.

I'm sure later on today I'll get the rest of the lizard regurgitated - talk about the gift that keeps on giving.

My cats love to play with lizards or any other creepy crawlies which we usually be very quick with the broom or newspaper to `whack' and dispose. Well, it seems my cats now do the `whacking' while I do the disposal. It is the playfulness in any feline instinct.

Yes the other day one of our cats got hold of a lizard. There was a lot of running around (by cat) and screaming (by people) till lizard was rescued and let outside.

for a few days i kept seeing my cats "ambush" around my washing machine. I join in the hunt but no roaches or lizards came out even when i tried hitting and making a lot of noise... (by the way, can roaches and lizards hear?)
Then one day I saw a dead big centipede at my dining area and they never went back to the machine.. Ah what if the centipede sting my cats...

My cat ate a bug (& threw it out) and besides salivating, his cheeks swelled up and he had difficulty breathing. He had to go to the vet immediately to bring down the inflammation. The bug was squarish with a "face" on its back. It could cause serious allergic reaction to some cats.

Poor lizard, hope it was a quick exit.

Anonymous- happened with my cats too. I find a bit of milk helps.

I won't let my cats kill lizards.
angry with my sister when she removed the spider in the toilet.
Another friend punished his cat for killing a bird by delaying the feeding time.

Anonymous - I don't think that any of us 'let' our cats kill insects. Obviously however you can't watch your cat 24 hours a day.

Also, it is instinctive for the cat to do this - so I really doubt your friend 'punishing' the cat will have any effect because I don't think the cat will understand what it is being punished for!
