LEAPING LIZARD, WHO IS THIS DUDE?

by Janet Blue on May 17, 2015

Have you been wondering all week who would host this week’s Sunday Selfies? It was a tough decision as to who was going to get this honor as we have a backlog of volunteers.

In the end, Lizzie got a paws up from all of us.

 

lizards

 

Mom says that it was super difficult to decide which lizard to feature. They are one of her favorite critters from Tortola. She thinks they are super cute, and she and dad always take lots of lizard photos. For a very long time, the wallpaper on her desktop computer was a Tortola lizard.

None of us have ever seen a lizard. We don’t have any in our yard. Mom says she and dad see them occasionally when they are riding the tandem. We know some of you see lizards all the time, have caught them and even tasted them. Do they taste like chick-hen?

Cat4-001Anyway…We are looking forward to seeing everyone’s selfies this week. And we promise to visit each of your blogs, even if it takes us all week. We are so appreciative of those who participate in and promote our blog hop. You are the best friends Kitties Blue could ever hope to have!

We encourage you to get the link below and post the hop on your blog. We only ask that you include a link to The Cat on My Hand and/or display our badge.

Have a terrific Easy Sunday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth & Calista Jo

p.s. If you are curious as to the actual size of Lizzie, that is a corn nut in the photo with him/her.

We used to have lots of slow-worms (legless lizards) in our garden and my cat kept bringing them indoors. I love them – but not wriggling about on my kitchen floor!

Christy Paws May 17, 2015 at 12:06 pm

I’ve never seen a lizard but mom says when she lived in Nevada she had a “porch lizard.” They called him that because every time they sat out there, there he was catching flies. Eventually, they started tossing him raw hamburger and boy, did he love that.

Annabelle May 17, 2015 at 10:17 am

Hi Lizzie
Your cousins must be living here with us. We see green, brown and multi colored blue lizards everyday in our yard. If only Mom would allow us to “play” together. ^sigh^ We have to delight in just watching them run from us.

Great selfie!

Lizzie is cute. I wouldn’t say this because she’s on your blog, but since you asked, I did catch a lizard once when we lived in Texas. It got in our house and we were on the third floor. The big guy knows they don’t taste very good because he found it after I got a hold of it. There were lots of yelps by him.
Purrs,
Annie

We have LOADS of those guys around our house. Sometimes they tease us from outside the window but, occasionally, they get in the house. Mom has found a LOT of dismembered lizard parts. We won’t tell her what they taste like..and she’s okay with that.

Emma May 17, 2015 at 6:59 am

Oh scary! My mom has a fear of pretty much all reptiles, she really doesn’t like lizards as the ones she has seen are small and fast. She is afraid they will run over an crawl on her! She doesn’t allow us to go near them either. Give her mice or bugs, no problem, but no reptiles ;) Heavens, she can’t even really look at photos because it creeps her out. At least the hop is open to all creatures and we find that generous of you kitties!

Hi Lizzie! I’ve never seen a lizard either….my Mom saw one on the garage door many years ago but since then – no “sightings” around here! I understand they are quite delicious though from some of my friends who regularly snack on them….(eeek)! HAPPY SUNDAY!

Hugs, Sammy

We’ve never seen a leaping lizard but we’d definitely chase one if they ever dared enter our home!

Mom LOVES the Geico Gecko commercials and thinks your lizard is probably a friend!

When Mom was in the Virgin Islands many moons ago she was terrified of the huge iguanas when she first arrived but by the time she left she was petting them and feeding them hibiscus our of her hand!

Your lizard looks a lot friendlier than those scary iguanas though…

Happy Sunday to you!

hehehe just kidding. That’s a pretty cool looking lizard. We’ve only seen lizards on our back porch through the window, but they don’t look like that guy. He looks like he would be fun to play with!

Lizzie is a real cutie pie, and we love her selfie. :)

Our dad grew up in California, and there were lots of lizards there. He says he does not see very many here in Connecticut. Come to think of it, we don’t think we have ever seen one in real life, either!

Hugs to you, dear friends. Thank you for hosting.

Moosey, Gracie and Zoe (and Mom and Dad, too)
