    I may not have a gecko, but it might have gotten outside. Also, be careful. It does not take much to injure a little gecko.

    A good, informative book.

    This book has helped me take better care of my pet gecko and know gecko needs. The only bad part is that it is assuming you don't already have a gecko.

    Two Cats.........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

    "Told you he'd do great!!!" A dark brown tom whispers to the cat next to him, his pelt full of stars. The she cat next to him smiles softly, her different brown shaded fur devoid of stars. "I never said he wouldn't," she mews. "Come my daughter. Let us go home," the tom mews. "Yes father." She begins padding after her father, her gecko like eyes saddened. The two disappear into the sunset.
