 My best friend that hasn’t left, time to take proper care?

I had a green anole enter my room about 2 months ago, being in North Carolina they are common, but usually I can leave the door open and they leave. I gave up, it seemingly made my room it’s home. In the area I am in I am always killing what probably would be in its diet at any given time prior to my new roomate. Now that I have grown attached and have always not been a reptile fan. And it doesn’t enter other areas of the house and seems healthy and content? I want to take proper care, would this shake up its now normal routine?

Also not sure how to edit sorry! Meant to add, It does get water, it likes to hang out in a decorative vase of dried roses so I spray those with water daily as well as leave out a shallow dish.. that’s about all I know. I just want to convert to confined so it doesn’t get hurt in the room or become depressed confined. I’d rather know I can feed it than depend on what it finds lol

My anoles are pretty chill and just lap up sprayed water-- not sure that they would take it from a dish though. If you have a small bowl with steep sides, you can toss a mealworm, cricket, small roach, etc. in there and they will eat it. You can probably feed him one or two small bugs every two days-- remember, they’re used to not always catching their prey in the wild, so don’t worry if he misses a feeding. Allow him to roam freely so he can warm up outside, otherwise you’ll have to spend some big bucks to get a UV light system if you plan on keeping him confined. If he can come and go as he pleases and know he can get food from you, then that’s probably the best way to handle it. It would be a shame for him to have such a huge area to roam and then be tossed in a small tank!
