We had our first inside snake visitor last night just as we were heading for bed.
Sedona had already claimed her spot in her doggie bed and Nancy was walking by when a little snake slithered under Sedona’s bed. Sedona either: 1. didn’t see it or 2. didn’t care.
I devised a plan of attack and shooed Sedona away so she wouldn’t interfere. Slowly I lifted the bed and there was the snake. Teeny one. Only five inches long, but still… a snake… in the house.
I grabbed one of Sedona’s dog toys and clubbed the little sucker. It took a few blows because dog toys tend to be all plushy and soft.
After it layed there motionless for a few minutes, I got up the nerve to pick it up to dispose of it.
Pictures first, so I laid it on the commode lid.
Then I flushed it.
As I settled into bed Nancy observed:
So I suppose now it is in the septic tank eating our shit and growing and someday it will crawl back out and bite us in the ass.
Yeah, I suppose.
