Little Cat, Big Lizard

This is a remarkably patient and tolerant lizard: he must have a good home. The kitten has no idea how close he is to being bitten. There’s just a tiny bit of lizard body language to suggest he wouldn’t mind if the cat went somewhere else. But these two are going to be good friends before long. Trust me, I’ve seen it done.

I don’t think the colossal green lizard we see at the end of the video is real.

  1. Let me explain this from the cat’s post of view.

    If cats had a Bible, written for the benefit of created felines, the opening words would be: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, so that when He made cats, there would be lots of interesting things for them to explore, for verily, He did it all for the sake of cats, and especially for the sake of kittens.

    So, a kitten, exploring a tiny corner of a Universe made expressly for its entertainment, comes upon an interesting looking animal with a long tail, and the kitten, being spiritual by nature, realizes that it is God’s will that he bite the end of that tail. It’s the Divine plan of the ages. 🙂

    1. My iguana, 17 years old and four feet long (a bit of his tail broke off when he was a baby), liked dogs and cats and sought them out as friends. Alas, our family dog couldn’t overcome her fear of him. But I’ll bet my cat Buster would’ve curled up on the couch with him. Buster was a social director, and would’ve been great at running a welcome wagon.
