Though I only have 1 reptile (a cornsnake), I do have many amphibians living with my 4 cats. I have never had a huge problem, but the one thing that I would recommend in addition to just keeping lids secured, is using pegboard lids for your tanks instead of screen(unless the kitten grows up to be a tiny cat). One time my cat was laying on top of a screen-top lid of one of my frogs and the screen broke through (Cat is about 11 lbs). Luckily the frog was busy hiding, so it didn't come out to meet a certain death. Also, some herps are poisonous if ingested so if the cat eats one it can be a bad situation for both critters involved. As long as you are careful, you can happily enjoy herps, rodents, and cats all in the same house. But just keep in mind that just one accident can be dangerous or deadly to all involved.
