Thankful Thursday

update: We have an identification! Apparently it's a "rough earth snake" and completely harmless.

Short and sweet.

This morning, I'm thankful for Gabbi's cat, Bella. We typically refer to this cat, fondly of course, as demon possessed. She does have some psychotic issues.

That said, I'm thankful for her.

This morning I woke up to this:

INSIDE MY HOUSE. That is the hall between the kids' rooms. And a snake. A SNAKE!!

This is SO not what I want to wake up to! I was madly going through my internal rolodex to rent a husband because I don't DO snakes. Even when they're a harmless whatever kind of snake that is. (This IS a harmless snake right? Someone please tell me what kind of snake this is so that I can rest assured that even though there was a SNAKE IN MY HOUSE, it's okay because it's harmless. Please? I know it's not a water moccasin or a coral snake; those are the only snakes I recognize immediately. I think copperheads are more pink than that, but I'm not completely sure. I thought garter snakes were greeen! So SOMEONE tell me that the only harm this particular snake could cause is me hurting myself in a panic to get away from it!)

Then we realized it was already dead. I had heard Bella bumping around quite a bit last night and threw a couple of books at her. (Light sleeper ... and if you ever wonder why books are all beat up around here, now you know why. I throw them at noisy animals.) Turns out she was protecting my children from the evil snake. Again, probably harmless, but REALLY? A snake in my house?!?

So, go Bella. I'm thankful for her today.

I think I shall buy her a kitty treat. Or maybe just not yell at her when she sharpens her claws on the furniture. Naaah, let's go for the kitty treat.
