low maintenance pet

After several months of attempting to convince Madeline that it's a sign of good luck to have a gecko in one's bedroom (instead of a reason to shriek in teror), we have success. The tiny little gecko who has been hanging out behind her chest of drawers for the past five days or so has been named "Squiggly" and Madeline gives me updates throughout the day about whether her new pet is hiding, peeking out from behind the chest of drawers, or basking in the heat atop the furniture. 

I have no idea, honestly, if geckos are viewed as a sign of good fortune in this culture. It was just the quickest thing that I could think of to put a positive spin on a renegade reptile.
