Snakes and I have an agreement.
They go there way and I go mine.
Unless it's a copperhead in my space I just scoot them away.
Only snakes I've ever had in the house were a Boa I once got in a failed attempt to get over my uneasiness of snakes. It didn't work.
And every now and then I find some 2" - 4" baby black snakes in the workshop. They are about the size of large earthworms but I don't like them in the house.
But my kitties Lucy & Ethel think they are great fun. Lucy even finds them a tasty snack.
For fun around here we try to figure out ways to keep the tree rats from destroying everything they see. The birds sure wish they wouldn't destroy all of there feeders. And I'd like it if they didn't try to eat the house.
