Every couple of weeks, Blade the gecko gets crickets put in his cage as part of his diet.  In addition to being gecko nourishment, they also provide a source of entertainment for Jack the cat.  Although we’ve had many crickets in house since the week before Christmas, tonight was the first time I heard them chirping merrily away in the aquarium.
