Cats and Lizards Photographed Together Is The Most Amusing Thing To Ever Seen

Pets like cats and dogs do not easily give up on their natural wild instincts because it’s imprinted in their DNA. It is evident especially when their preys are under one same roof. However, what you are to see in this intense complication below, things are not that easy as you think.

Reptiles are tiny and big, they are living things and move fast which makes felines think they are a delicious meal or a toy to play with. However, surprisingly reptiles like cold-blooded lizards can make the best of friends with cats too. But do not be so relieved or happy about it. Reptiles of any kind are a danger to be kept in the surroundings of any pet in your household. This statement has been proved by many professionals and people from around the world.

An author and a certified cat behavior specialist, Rachel Geller made a statement with regard to this matter. Geller stated that lizard and cat encounters may look hilarious and adorable to us, along with that comes side effects. Cats are triggered by anything that moves fast. And once it is triggered the situation can be dangerous for both the cat and lizard, she said.

It is fatal for a lizard to be bitten or even scratched by a cat. And on the other hand, it is toxic for a cat to eat, play and even touch a lizard. Rachel went on to explain that many types of lizards carry parasites that would cause digestive issues and also cause harm to the liver or the gallbladder. Cats can also get salmonella from eating a lizard. All these threats can be life-threatening to felines.

However, the specialist advised that if anyone who wishes to keep cats and lizards under the same roof it is safer to keep them in separate rooms. It is because once a cat’s prey drive is stimulated it would make a way to get to the lizard.
