One day on our way home from Lancaster we stopped into a pet store to pick up some lizard supplies. When we walked in there was an animal rescue place there. They were from Alabama. Apparently the shelters there only keep animals for 7 days, and then they are put down, regardless of their temperment. Well this group adopts as many dogs as they can, put them into foster care, and then they travel to places like PA where they go to stores and attempt to adopt them out. I had been joking that I wanted a weiner dog. And guess what they had....

Cameron's beloved Inky passed away in August 2012. He was VERY upset and cried for quite a while. He had been asking for a new kitty for quite a while, when a friend of ours cat had kittens. She had to get rid of them "or else" so we agreed to take two. When we got there (they were a week old) I fell in love with the little boy, and two became three! Here they are when we brought them home.
Meatball was a chubby little baby when he was born, (they were calling him Fathead). He is a sweetheart and definitley the snuggliest of them all. He was supposed to be "mine" but Cameron decided he wanted the boy instead. (Even though they are the families, he wanted to have one that was "his" to try to replace Inky)
And this is Nala. This is the one Cheyenne chose to be "her's" She is the bully of the bunch. :-(They all joined Belle or 5 year old cat. Here she is watching the anoles and toads/frogs. This is her favorite past time. :-)

So here are some of our other lizards/frogs. This first one is one of two of our Green Tree frogs. (And in the lower left one of the anoles tails)
Originally these guys were only the two anoles, but I got mad at hubby, and I was at the pet store and aquariums were on sale, so that's when we added the frogs and toads. So the enclosure had to be bigger. So then I went all out and added soil and a water feature, rocks and live plants. This is right after I put it all in, it has filled in quite a bit with the plants and they all have places to hide now. :-)
This is a close up of the water part. We added some Lexan (which I found out is what bullet proof glass is made of) I used aquarium sealer to add that to the aquarium. Once it all dried is when I added the soil, plants etc and the water. To that I added a rock and a stick and we threw in some guppies. You can see one of the fire belly toads sitting on top of the filter in the back. It is also nice because all of these pets need a more wet/humid enclosure so the water feature helps quite a bit.
