Just now I saw a cricket crawl out from under my bed to my book case. I just fed my lizards two days ago, and I guess one got out. Any clue how to catch it? Or should I let the kitten handle it?

Don't mind it, either the cat eats it or it dies few days.

I don't think there's any way of attracting crickets, but it's a very stupid insect. Normal insects run away from you. Some crickets will actually jump towards you.
Just the other day, I was thinking about breeding minnows so I wouldn't need to drive all the way into town and I wouldn't need to pay for them. Perhaps you could breed crickets if there were some way. That way you'd always have a surplus on hand.

Cats seem to love to play with crickets, then eat them. Let kitty have at it!!!

It will eventually die on it's own. Best to allow it to enjoy it's few short days of freedom

I think I'll do that. Kitten is very good at catching things. When she was
8 weeks old I saw her catch, kill, and eat a mouse. She cleared out ourrodent problem very quickly, and since then I think she's been bored. Too bored really, it has been a constant struggle to keep her from my birds!

Don't leave it! Escapee crickets are imortal and live forever under the floor, chirping away!
