    I was walking out in the paddock with two of our three cats and on the way back into the house yard Pud the eldest of our cats was sniffing around the log pile and she froze then ran over to the new chook pens that are being built I went over and discovered this stiff,cold, lifeless body laying there with her eyes open and front legs stretched so it looks like she was pawing at the grass. Her rear end is a mess we think she may have been pregnant and died giving birth or has eaten something poisonous or was bitten by a snake which may have been likely because I beheaded one a couple days ago. Please can someone help me find out what happened.

    Wow! So sorry, that's awful! I'm in NY so I'm not much help, but I would think if it happened really quickly she may have bee bitten by a snake and as she was dying the fetus/sack would have been expelled. Sounds like it's time for a little .22 practice with the snakes, Sue

    How sad, I'm sorry. [​IMG]

    Maybe there is something poisonous living in that log pile.
