I really love this. I'm thinking of asking my roommate if I can do something like this but he's picky about grooming the yard. I want a large airy enclosure to attach to a catdoor for the cats and ferrets to go in and out. In the grass.

I was thinking a slanted glass roofing, will block the rain and snow, but not the light. Catdoor will be always open so they can come in any time

Glass roof spooks me because hail is common here. It would be a good idea, but my main thing is I want grass, and I'm not sure how good grass will do with no water from the rain.

Pic related, another grass alternative so the cats can still enjoy the grass, and I could have a solid roof

Ferret proofing one has got to be a pain in the ass though. How would you manage that? Plexiglass sides? And catios can be beautiful if done right, it would be perfect for plants that climb

It's a wild animal and not domesticated

>>2112750
It's fine to befriend a wild animal that trusts you, but never consider it a "pet" like you would a domesticated species.
>>
>>2113007
No it's not ok to befriend wild animals, especially ones considered threats. Coyotes can and have killed people. You shouldn't encourage them on your property or interact with wild animals like coyotes, bears, foxes, raccoons, etc. You just do more harm than good. You're risking their lives and possibly putting other people in danger of being hurt.

The best thing to do with wild animals is leave them alone or if you must, relocate them if they are a problem. If they are hurt, you call a rehab...

I need to know more about these
>>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropical_house_gecko

Where I live they sort of appear on their own and reproduce a lot, but they're stupid and the young ones die quite often.

I want more of them so I've been thinking on some sort of gecko feeder or 'fake environment' but I have no idea of where to start.
Starting with food that doesn't escape, ideal temperature and whatever else I shouls think about.

Die how?
The easiest thing would be to leave out a dish of water, and a plastic rubermaid tub with some crickets in it if you really want to feed them.

Also yes, they are lizards.
>>
>>2121270
super small ones have wandered a lot in places where there's too much water for them, so I'm guessing they drown.
Breeding crickets would be a good idea, it seems. I just want them to eat up spiders and mosquitoes.
>>
>>2121274
Breeding crickets is the worst thing ever. I highly recommend roaches over crickets, they're better and easier in every regard, and the feeder kind won't infest your house.

can we resettle African lions and camels in North America?
there were once american camels and lions so they will probably adapt and the ecosystem will probably adapt to accomodate them in the long run. And we won't have to travel to Africa to see lions / camelos.

are there other extinct animals in one region we can resettle from another?

My friend bought a feeder mouse to give to his pet and I wouldn't allow it, so now I have a feeder mouse as a pet. I went to petsmart, bought a small cage, some food, and a little igloo house for him/her.

What else do I need to know? What are some good names for a mouse and how long do they live?

If I get a couple feeder goldfish to drop in an old water fountain, will they take care of mosquitoes? And if I put a live plant in there, will that keep their water clean enough to make the fish survive through the summer?
