More creatures stories ...

Another blog about animals, hope you like the furry creatures, else maybe this is not the blog for you ... but new cooking recipes going up soon - promise!
Oreo the “cat in the bowl” that you have already met ... is the center of all the teasing in my family. With his huge body and little head, his huge eyes, and not being able to stop when running... he doesn't stand a chance. The newest joke is that he has a huge body, a little head with a little brain. (dinos had two brains, one in the head and one in the tail, he seems to be missing the tail one)
With his constant surprised look, please pardon this next expression but Big Dog says, “He looks like someone put a plug up his butt” - just not nice!

Well, I'm back and writing. I need really a need a good way to remember to do my blog. Do you think this would work?

Yesterday, our cat Maestro caught a snake. It's usually lizards and there was once a mole that I had to save.
You can relax on the snake issue tho, no danger. If it had bitten me, it wouldn't have killed me. It's a common Garter snake and in Florida snakes aren't that big of a deal.

But I realised I had seen this snake before... this is now the second time Maestro has caught it. I know it is the same snake as it's tail was just growing back from his last attack and it had also been stuck in our pool. This snake must have a death wish!
This time I thought it's wish had been granted as it wasn't moving. So I poked it. It was still alive. The Cat's Mother and The Princess screamed at the top of their lungs of course. I was trying to come up with a way to move the snake into the bushes when I noticed that it's eye was bleeding.
So this snake has half a tail, has nearly drowned and, is half blind and still lives in our garden!
I found this on Wikipedia:
Animals that eat the common garter snake include large fish(such as Bass and catfish), bullfrogs, snapping turtles, milk snakes, hawks, skunks, foxes and domestic cats.
I don't think the snake's read this else it would pack a bag and slither on out!
