Aussie cat picks up a hitchhiker.

A CAT has survived a brush with a copperhead snake, walking about for some time with the scaly creature wrapped around its neck.

Wendy Wallis of Sorrell Creek in Tasmania said nine-year-old Jelly wandered into the yard yesterday morning with the snake round her neck.

"Both the cat and the snake seemed quite happy," Ms Wallis said.

She called wildlife rescuers who removed the snake.

While Jelly showed no signs of being bitten last night, this morning she was almost paralyzed.

"She's at the Montrose vet at the moment being pumped full of anti-venom, but the vet says she'll recover fully," Ms Wallis said.

I tell ya, if one of my cats came home one night with a copperhead wrapped around it's collar...

Well, one of the neighbors would probably call 911 when they heard the gun shots.

You are on a snake kick. I would just have a heart attack and die. Miss bee told me you had a post on Yellow Cake in Iraq yesterday, I could not find it.

Stop doing this snake shit! You know I hate them almost as much as cats!


Now I'll probably dream about this!

Oh, give him a week or so, and it'll all pass, and he'll start on somethin' else. Like a damned armpit-full of leeches, or somethin'!

He just likes to "hear" the hairs on our necks stand-up, and then keel over again....!

Question is, how the hell does it get wrapped around the collar? While the cat is sleeping? Naaaaa. That's just some weird shit, right there.

My neighbor came over to my house and yelled at me over my dog!

I have a dog that I can't keep in my yard. I have tried everything and she always finds a way out. Anyway, this lady comes to my home, knocks on my door and when i open the door she points her finger at me and yells obscenities at me. Apparently my dog was in HER neighbors garbage and then pooped on HER NEIGHBORS LAWN! Why didn't she come and talk to me like a civil human being? Why was she a vicious monster attacking me at my door? I calmly went over to HER NEIGHBORS house where the garbage was and picked up every piece, and the dog poop. I agree that I have that responsibility to clean up after my dog. The one thing I don't agree upon is someone coming to my house and screaming in my face about something I didn't know about. Is anyone out there been blessed with a psyco-neighbor?
I don't think anyone remembers the golden rule...Do unto others as you would want done unto you!
I sent them a lovely card from this site I
