Feeding the cat.
Step one - wash cat's bowl and move to kitchen to get food.
Step two - notice the Gecko on the kitchen floor before the cat does, but fail to react quickly enough.
Step three - grab cat by tail (because cat's reaction time is quick) and remove him to another room and shut door.
Step four - spend a stoopidd amount of time chasing gecko around kitchen floor (usually I am Pretty good at catching to rescue lizards).
Step five - finally catch gecko minus wriggling tail, and remove it to the garden.
Step six - let the cat out who eats the tail and complains about the rest of the gecko missing.
Step seven - put cat meat into cat bowl and give to cat.
