    Funny garter/cat story

    When I go off to school for the semester, I generally miss a lot of the shenanigans that go on with our animals, but my parents just told me last week about this one.

    We have this giant, geriatric cat. He's almost 17 years old, and he typically just sits in one place for really long periods of time (his record is three days in one spot, moving only twice to go use the bathroom).
    Anyway, apparently last year my parents went to pick him up out of the yard, and he had been there for so long that a young garter snake had actually crawled under him and curled up! The cat was awake and everything, I guess he just didn't feel like moving to get the snake.

    Just thought that'd be fun to share since most cat and garter stories don't end happily.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    This cat, taking walk's, he no like
    there's just no way to get him to hike
    I bet he would stay put
    with a snake up his butt
    and an imminent asteroid strike
    ​I'm not actually a gynecologist...but i'll take a look.

    we used to have an old cat who ignored our beardie perching on him as well as the kingsnake curled up next to him - he was just not interested any more
    then he died, and we adopted young cats, and they are very interested

    My cats are also very interested. It is their form of entertainment, watching the snakes.
