I'm Running This Monkey Farm Now.

"MOM! Athena Brought a snake in!" Small my youngest was hollering through the house. I walked into the kitchen to see our calico cat with a mouthful of snake.

"What kind is it, mom."
A Garter snake. Is it still alive?: Small bent down closer to investigate, Athena, who is very protective of her food, growled.

"no, it's dead."
I guess let her eat it." And I went back to doing the laundry as Small when to watch his precious few minutes of television.

"MOMMMMMMM!!" I heard Small screaming bloody terror ten minutes later. I ran into the kitchen to see what was going on.

"It's still alive." I looked down, and at our feet was that garter snake, his lower half of his body had been eaten, and it was slowly swinging his upper portion back and fort. I felt bad for the little creature. And thought it best to go ahead and kill it. I bent down closer to see where his head ended. It took me a moment.

"Small, it doesn't have a head!"

You just never know what the kitties may bring inside! I'm surprised that small didn't want to play with it...no head and all!

Kids are funny that way! Hope no body will have bad dreams about the "headless snake"!
