We have lived in the country for 13 years
and have loved every minute of it...or almost
every minute. It was such a nice day here
and we opened the front door to let the
sunshine in. A few minutes later my husband called
me to the living room where laid a snake in
the coiled position...the cat had been playing
with him. So we pick him up and take him outside
and dispose of him. About an hour later I saw the
cat out of the corner of my eye and she had
a skink about 5 inches long in her mouth. So I
chased her to the bedroom, praying that she
kept him in her mouth...thinking all along
that if she lets him go I will never catch
him under the bed and will not get a good nights
sleep until he he is caught. She held him tightly
in her teeth and I took him out of her mouth and
put him outside. The picture I am going to post is
a much bigger one for those of you that are not familiar with
skinks...they are harmless..but I still do not want
them in the bed...I did not take a picture of the
one she caught. Oh, by the way for the past two nights
I have had dreams of snakes.
do you know what kind of snake this is..I could not
find it on the internet.
There was about a 1/2" opening where the rubber flap
on the glass door had slid to the right..so that is back in place now so
hopefully it won't happen again.
Then about 2 hours later I heard the cats growling...like cat fight
growling. So I go to the living room and the inside cat is trying
to attack the cat outside through the glass. Ziggy adopted us
a few weeks ago..he is our barn cat. He proudly displays his
catches of field rats for us.
So we have had an exciting day here.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
