Dangerous lizard like amphibian

John Ross,

We have loads of cats and I quite often see Fire Salamanders on the lane beside our house, but I haven't lost a cat yet to that hazard.

Try not to worry. Generally cats are aware of what's good for them and what isn't.

First of all it's not a lizard.[;-)]

Secondly they aren't that "toxic" and cats will leave them alone because salamanders don't move quickly. I frequently handle them and only remember about their delicate nature when I feel my lips burning a bit. It's amazing how many times we touch our mouths.[:D]

Having recently lost the most beautiful cat to poison I can appreciate your concern,  not helped by some of the more flippant answers[:(] Sorry if I'm having a sense of humour failure but he was a beautiful fella.

Sorry for your loss Jo and I too am concerned about folk who just stick poison down willy nilly as whilst I appreciate the need to control vermin many household pets and wildlife like owls and other birds of prey have been killed by ingesting poison either first or second hand.................................JR

When Wikipedia says "but some secretions could also be dangerous to human life" I take it that it is felt that this is overstating the case?..........................JR 

PS Not aware of any snide asides unless I am missing something.
