Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. He’s adorable. Just make sure he understands that if you ever do decide to make use of that space, he’s going to need to move along. 😉

  2. Quilly…..Have you put up a fence? How does he know what is his area and what’s yours? My rule is, if it has a name and a leash it’s an indoor pet. My sister, in Florida, has several of these little fellows in the yard and they are really cute. But, I’m sticking to the (my) rule. However…if he spoke with a country, English accent and had darling fingers and toes like the Geico Insurance salamander/gecko, I’d keep him in my pocket :-)……. Judy

  3. Melli — he is cute, and very well mannered.

    Brig — he actually only comes in for the evening. During the day the space is all ours.

    Polona — a perfectly unobtrusive house guest.

    Nessa — I’m not, but that may be my house guest’s line of work. I’m not certain. He really isn’t very talkative.

    Doug — when it comes to bugs I am happiest with the ‘goings’.

  4. Morgan — OC was more worried that he’d end up in our sink and/or dishes and when the little fellow ventured a wee bit too far into our space he was scooped into an empty jar and released into the wild.
