The last day when I was blogging about drainage, I touched on making the garden more attractive to frogs.

Today, Josephina turned up with a newt or lizard (not sure, sent the photos away for ID) but thats really good news for me Very Happy . From my initial reading it appears this is probably a male newt

Poor wee bubber had lost his tail and part of a leg thanks to the attention of my fierce little feline friend, but otherwise seemed in good nick.

For now I moved it to an enclosed drain which has water and mud - and provided shelter.

My plan is - subject to advice - is to put dry catfood in under the shelter on a dry spot. This will attract slugs to the drain, and provide food for my retained reptile.

With only 3 legs and a tail (which will grow back) I recon the only name for said reptile is Lucky.
