The House of a Thousand Lizards


The title may be exaggerated but lately it seems like I find the cats playing with a lizard almost everyday. Sometimes it happens more than once in a day. I can only guess that they come in under the patio door, Chris or Puck finds them, asks them nicely if they want to play, and when hearing no reply (lizards can’t talk silly) bring them into the house for fun and games. It always seems to be a group event. Apparently they think they are pack animals like wolves.

This past week I had to dislodge three lizards from either Chris or Puck and put them outside. A couple more times I was too late.

The other day I walked by the bathroom and noticed Puck in the litter box and Chris standing next to it as if he was waiting his turn. Upon further inspection I noticed that Puck had brought a lizard into the box. I was too late to save it and I am not sure if it was a ceremonial burial that I interrupted.

Hurry Puck! If they find it we will be in trouble.

I am burying it as fast as I can.

              We are just entering fall here in Florida which is my favorite time of year. The weather cools a bit and the rains slow down but the Gulf water is still warm enough to swim in.

    Here in S.C., we have these ugly “skank” lizards…they are nearly an inch wide and gross me out…fortunately, the “kids” keep them in check! Motley will just PARK over an area of the rear deck until one comes along! He also has brought me (inside) a few dragon flies this year…and they are big ones… 🙂

    I’m sure Sam would have NO IDEA what a lizard was……bugs yes – lizards no. That’s fine with me………and honestly, in the 20 years we’ve lived here in this house I’ve seen a lizard ONCE.

    That is funny that they were hiding the evidence. I am so glad I live in Massachusetts and don’t have lizards.
