"It's not that I don't care for snakes,
But oh what do you do
When a 24-foot python says …
I love you?"
Shel Silverstein, "Snake Problem", A Light in the Attic, USA: Harper Collins, 1981

The HandsomeHusband rescued this snake in December. I posted about it here, on my other blog, Suzy Homemaker. Today was the first time it came up through the hole on the top of the flower pot that we have in the aquarium for its den. My cat, Jack, was going nuts. Whenever the snake comes out from under the pot, Jack is on top of the aquarium, twitching his tail and usually knocking something down in the process. Soon the snake will no longer be a part of our happy family. The plan is to release it at a nearby hiking trail, sometime in late April or early May, when the weather turns warmer.
