Last week while my cat was on the atrium, I noticed he found a little
black racer snake. They played for some time, then he let the snake
go. The next day, our neighbor asked my husband to get the snake out
of her pool.  Guess it got tired of playing with my cat and wanted to take a swim.

turtle, I knew it was time to make a visit to the pet store.
