Well went to get some scratch for afternoon snack and there was an intimidating hiss and a tail disappearing around the corner of my storage room. Cat or snake? So I got my flashlight and checked it out and a big ol king snake. Well of course hubby is out of town so called my neighbor/best friend and asked her how hers felt about snakes and then asked them to come and deal. I said "He ain't gotta die, but he can't stay here!!!" So they came and scooped him up into a box and hauled him off. CRISIS AVERTED! and the snake gets to continue doing his job and living happy.......just not at my house!
