    Default The Cat and the Snake

    Yikes, I'm freaking out, my sons King Snake Elvis is missing. Meeko our cat has just started a new habit of sleeping in the laundry room on top of my sons snake aquarium. It has a screen that locks on top, and a warming light, so I think she likes to sleep near the warmth. I said to my son yesterday, I hope she doesn't fall through the screen and break it, and let the snake out. He keeps moving her, but she goes back when no one is looking. Today we had to go out to Doctors appointment, and then my son got a haircut, and we went out for lunch, so we were gone for a few hours. When we came home, my son went downstairs to put in a load of laundry, and he saw that the screen had fallen into the glass aquarium, and the screen had been pulled off the frame, he looked in the tank, and Elvis was gone. We checked everywhere,behind the washer and dryer, under the furnace, behind the shelves, under the utility shelf, and we moved the boxes, but didn't see any sign of the snake. We checked Meeko for any signs of blood, or bites, but nothing. We don't know if Meeko fell in the tank, got scared or spooked and took off, and then Elvis may have climbed out of the tank and slithered off somewhere and is hiding, or if Meeko grabbed the snake and bit it, and it slinked off somewhere and it's injured, or if God forbid she grabbed the snake played with it and then ate it. I checked on Google to see if cats could actually eat a snake and apparently they can. They also can climb stairs, which is my greatest fear. I'm not going to be able to sleep until I know the snake is found, or if I see remnants of it in the kitty litter, it said on the Internet to look for pieces in the poop in the kitty litter. Ugh I hate snakes and I'm not going to rest or be happy until I know it's not somewhere in my house, or crawling up my vents, or in my bed. I am totally freaked out. HELP

    Oh that sucks. I hope you find it soon. Several years ago we were dead asleep and in the middle of the night we heard our cats going crazy at the foot of our bed. I get up and turn on the light only to gof wtf. Somehow a baby cotton mouth had got not only in our house but made its way to our beedroon sight unseen for the kitties to play with. Needless to say my wife wasn't very happy about it.

    I don't blame her. Snakes and spiders, but especially snakes freak me out. This snake is/was my sons pet. He's pretty upset right now. He's ready to string up the cat. Lol

    No Elvis, is still MIA. We're thinking Meeko may have eaten him. I read on line that cats will first play with a snake because they move slowly, and then they will throw them around or eat them.

    Bummer, I hope you find Elvis soon. How big was he? I would think if he was at least two feet long then the cat would not be able to eat all of it, or if he did would have a stuffed belly that you could feel.

    Elvis was about 3 feet long, I thought the same thing, and looked for blood on her fur, she white and light grey, but didn't find any signs of blood on her or in the laundry room. But if she bit the snake, he might be hurt and hiding somewhere and could die. I guess if we start smelling a funky smell we'll know if he died. Ugh.

    Well, the only GOOD news is that it is not a python..................and check your shoes before you put them on.

    OMG! I'd be staying in a hotel! My son always knew that there were no snakes to be kept as pets in our house! When we lived in Texarkana, my husband found a total of 4 in my living room. That house would have been sold immediately if I had known!
