We have three cats. One of them, Greysie, is a voracious killer. She’s very deceptive… fluffy, sweet, affectionate… but she brings down everything from large grasshoppers to full-size turtle-doves.
I moved a kitchen towel that had fallen on the floor, and SURPRISE, it’s a snake!
These tiny snakes, called DeKay snakes, are common in much of Texas. They live on little bugs, and I’ve never seen one offer to bite a person. People tell me, “Oh, she’s hunting for you, she’s bringing you a present!” No, she’s bringing things into the house, where she can play with them longer.
He’s a small one; I’ve seen smaller, but they get about twice this size when full-grown. He kept trying to hide between my fingers.
