Our gray cat is a hunter. He was homeless until we rescued him when he was about four months old. He still has the hunting instinct. While we were working in the yard last week, my husband noticed the cat chasing a lizard. It ran up a tree stump and we stepped into rescue it.
The Texas Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus olivaceus) is common in our area. They eat insects and are fun to watch. This fellow was very calm when we approached him and let my husband move him to another, safer spot to continue his life free of meddlesome kitties.
