Though im not sure I could trust my cat enough unsupervised lol but if you can then you got one good cat lol. It's not that she wants to hurt my beardie it's just that she is so curious. Whereas my other cat is terrified of my beardie and the most he will do is smell her but the minute Molly moves he is gone lol. I never understood the "Keep your cats away from your beardie, don't let them in the same room, don't even let them see each other" like even if they don't get along too much if your tank is sturdy it should be no problem. My beardie is in my room but before I got her it was cat central so they own my room she is just a permanent guest lol they would in no way they'd allow me to kick them out.
Yeah, cats will claim an area, and woe betide anyone who tries to change that. When I had mine, I had a miniature couch he'd sleep on in 'his' corner, and he had none of it when my wife & I wanted to use that space for something else.
In defense of the poster who hates cats, I've been on this site about a year, and he's definitely someone with a ton of BD knowledge who is passionate about their health and wellbeing. Tone & personal feelings about cats aside, it would be a mistake IMO to dismiss his comments out of hand (and I know the OP is being careful with her setup, so this is directed generally). My nickname for my cat was "HK" for hunter-killer, and while I loved him for what he was, I also had no illusions of what he was capable of as a natural consequence of being a cat. The takeaway from this thread probably ought to be that it *can* work in certain narrow circumstances, but it isn't recommended and can have tragic consequences.
Well - To those who criticizes me or keep giving me unasked advise - I did not ask for permission, advise or your opinions on what you think is right- I merely asked if anyone else had free range dragons - not your option on the matter.
You do not see our day to day interactions or the fact that my cats are not “hunter killers” .... not all cats are one step away from bring feral.
As for the poster/cat hater Nobby - I would just assume that he/she never respond to any of my posts ever again.
My cats and my dragons are just fine - Kevin is an unusually large dragon - that even the vet and herpetologist suggest he is part German giant - because he really is a big guy - the cats run from him when he gets territorial.
I will state yet again - is not for everyone and we do know that this us and the norm - but it works for us. thank you all very much.
