Invasion

A snake has moved into my garage.

This really wouldn't bother me under some circumstances. It's a black racer, and they're non-venomous as well as being good for killing off any little nasty critters lurking near my house.

Unfortunately, it's the middle of summer and that garage gets unbelievably hot. It'll bake that snake especially since, hello, reptile. I just don't see cold-blooded plus extreme ambient heat with no relief in sight being a plus, yanno?

Dead snake doesn't smell good.

Here's hoping it leaves through the little outside door opening I left it, and not through the door into the kitchen when someone else opens that...

Oh well, it'll make a good cat toy if nothing else.

Sigh.

Yeah, I'm in Florida too -- the central inland part :)

It's not the snakes that get me, it's the roaches and spiders. Eeeek!!!! Okay, venomous snakes squick me out too, but I'm more anti-creepy-crawly than anti-slithery, LOL

Goodness! Maybe he'll just decide to leave!

I say put the cats out there and hope that the snake eats one of them. It will certainly make it easier to find with one of those monsters stuffed into its belly:)

Blech.

If that were me, I'd have my husband rip apart the garage until he found that thing and drove it out!

Yep, bet he's happy he married me, lol.
