    A couple of Pets getting snake bit today

    A good friend had a young Jack Russel get snake bit in the face today, no idea about what kind of snake and the puppy is at the Vet's right now. One of my uncles had found three copperheads, one yesterday and two this morning. My aunt had actually stepped over one snake this morning and their newly acquired cat got bit by the other one around the face as well. The cat took off immediately and hasn't been seen yet. Normally copperhead bites don't kill dogs or cats but they may take a week to get over them. Not quite the case with rattlesnakes and cottonmouths as they tend to be muscle destroyers. The cicadas have been coming out big time and that is what a lot of the snakes are feeding on.

    My wife has snakes on the brain right now, it is nearly dark and she thought that our cat was after a snake out front. I got out there pretty fast with a walking stick but even before I got out the door, I could see that the cat was after a bug and what she thought was a snake was in fact just a stick LOL. The cat, thought that we were idiots I guess and left the bug to us.

    Wonder if all the hotter weather this summer has caused a lot more snake activity.

    Dont know if it's true or not nor if it applies everywhere but someone at my wife's church told her its mating season for copperheads.

    I've seen 8 different black snakes this season ,a green snake and a worm snake . I've yet to see a copperhead here.
    I'm surrounded by thousands of acres of forest so I know they are here and do watch my step.

    When I lived on a tiny patch of dirt in Fredericksburg Va surrounded by thousands of acres of houses I killed copperheads every year for 30 years.and saw plenty of blacksnakes to.

    I kill copperheads but let the others live as they are harmless and good at keeping the mice under control .

    nope, cat still gone but it had only been there a few days and not really established as home so we don't know if it will come back. Haven't heard yet about the puppy but will let you know when I know
