Our grandson, Bryan, grade 9, made fun of "tuko" , house lizard known as gecko. He let Garfol catch it which is on the wall of our bathroom. Garfol caught it and it dropped on the floor. My wife stopped it and shoved Garfol away. My wife told me while I was still in bed. I couldn't help myself but cried. I got out and told Bryan that Tuko has the right to live. It's very useful for it gets rid of harmful insects in the house like mosquitoes and cockroaches. Tuko lost a part of its and got bite in its neck. Gingging, my 2nd elder daugther applied first aid. Hope it would recover. After a minute, we overheard a gecko's sound somewhere in the house. Any living things have the right to live. Let's take care of them. I hope this words of life preservation is inculcated by Bryan to his mind.

I can see saving the gecko's life, but most of us would put it in a safe place outdoors rather than letting it stay and live in our homes. I didn't realize they killed cockroaches, though. My sister lives in Detroit and the recent tenant brought some into their flat. I'll let her know if she has any problems with them still to get herself a gecko and the cockroaches should disappear. I'm sure she won't think I'm funny and wouldn't want to try that approach, but I may tell her just the same.
