Just wanted y’all to know Mama’s not the only snake-killer in this house. See for yourselves:
P.S. Mama wanted you all to know that snakes really can get in your car, like when it’s parked in the garage overnight. She confirmed it with her car dealership. Now who wants to see something like that pop out as one is zipping down the highway??!
And, Dallas, I must say, you got the bigger snake, which is cool. In your car?! Goodness. Fling that brute through the window, that’s what I’d do.
Dallas DID grab himself a big snake, didn’t he? What a wonder! Looks like he’s trying to gnaw its cheeks off, ha! I’ve never heard of anybody getting a live snake in their car, but the thought is horrifying. Mice? Yes, but not snakes. And even a mouse would be a nuisance to see if you were driving!
Really a mouse? Goodness. That’d be horrid as well, like you said. Yes, I think Dallas killed that snake dead twice!
I think I’d pay to see you fling a snake — or a mouse — out the window while you’re driving, Professor! Imagine what the other motorists would say, especially if the nasty thing landed on their windshield *laughing lots*
Well, I might swerve once or twice, but I would prevail!
Well done, Dallas! That’s a good catch, right there. I shall be sure to watch out for snakes in my car.
Lucy, I just get the shivers when I imagine heading down the highway and looking over to see a snake slithering along the floorboards! I guess they crawl up into cars searching for warmth. Ugh!!
You GO, Dallas! Good boy for catching that snake!
“Mama wanted you all to know that snakes really can get in your car, like when it’s parked in the garage overnight.”
Please tell Mama, yes, I do know that because when I lived in Florida (where there are a lot of snakes) they would get into people’s cars. Thankfully though, it never happened to me.
Great post, Dallas! Say Hi to Mama for me!
Ron, I just can’t abide snakes. And I guess I’d have to pull over if I saw one in my car while I was driving! Maybe I’ll start carrying a hoe or something with me, just in case.
I’m glad you never got one in your car. Frankly, I’ve never known of anybody it’s happened to, but when one recently slithered into our garage, I started wondering. That’s what prompted me to call my car dealership to check. They also assured me that MICE can get into cars — yuck!
And I know for certain that spiders can get in, and what a mess they can create, spinning webs all over the place!!
Happy Wednesday, my friend!
As if life isn’t stressful enough. Now I got to worry about snakes in the car! Yikes! Thanks, Dallas.
Ain’t it the truth?? We think Life is complicated, but I guess things could be worse. I don’t know how you’d get a snake OUT of your car. Me? I’d probably “abandon ship” and let some braver soul wrestle the thing out!
Seriously, snakes in cars. That would freak me out because I have a fear of snakes.
Me, too, Pat. I’ve killed several garter snakes this season (I know, they’re “friendly” snakes, but NOT in my back yard!). The thought of one getting into my car unnerves me to no end!
I must say you’re looking particularly splendid today, Dallas! Has your Mama just finished brushing you? We don’t get the chance to catch snakes over here, but we bet we’d be brilliant at it because cats are brilliant at everything!
Love, Tommy and Tuppence
You noticed Mama groomed me, huh? Wow, she must’ve done a good job — thanks! You don’t have snakes, or your mama doesn’t let you out to catch them? If you don’t have snakes, that’s where Mama wants to move! Kitties are good hunters, I know, so I can see how you two would love playing with a snaky! This is the underbelly of mine; the top side is a lovely shade of blue (or so Mama says!)
No snakes here! At least, I think we’re supposed to have little grass snakes in the wilds, but we’ve never seen one. Plenty of mice for us though! And we’re sure our servant likes them so we bring her one every now and again…
Aw, such GOOD kittehs — I’m pawsitive your servant appreciates your tokens of love!
Aw pretty picture.
Thanks, John. Dallas is a real sweetheart!
Wow! Dallas, please check the car throughly in the morning from now on. Thank you…
I’m not a “city girl,” but sharing space with critters isn’t my idea of FUN! Bees, flies, mice, snakes — yuck! Now if they were helping pay for the car, well, I might consider giving them a lift, heehee!
Laughing…you could ask… hahaha! I probably wouldn’t and I’m not a true city girl. I don’t like little creatures much…they move too quickly.
That they do — and it’s impossible to think about squashing one underfoot!!
