A stripey!! Ok... a garter snake, but we always called them stripies. LOL Love them. Be careful, though... the big ones bite. Not poisonous, but it hurts. Especially since they don't usually like to let go. Wink Spent many a summer day looking for these. The babies make great pocket pets for a day.

I think it's great. I would encourage him to stick around, too. He will keep things in order in that garden.

I can guarantee you that you won't have any moles in your yard for awhile, either. Best mole repellant on earth is a Garter Snake.

*hee hee* If my mom had that in her house she would have had a heart attack! I was forever picking up garter snakes as a kid. It was my job to "patrol" the yard before my mom or dad mowed and before my mom went to hang out clothes and remove any offenders. I was always told that the little ones are males and the big ones are females so maybe it's the females that bite?? I would have loved to see your cat "playing" with it though. Garter snakes are welcome in my garden anytime!

Was it in the house or the garden? While I like snakes, (my son had a Columbian Red Tailed Boa for a few years) I would like it in the garden. I would NOT like it in the house.

it was in the middle of the living room on the floor coiled up with the cat laying behind it playing with its tail gwynn. took it outside and put it in the strawberry patch to take a pic of it, so as not to have "other half" freak out.

Copperhead in the garden today. Now dead! A garter snake I'll shoo away, a copperhead, dead. Grandchildren play in the yard.

Yep folks, that is a genuine cobra.

Two things I don't miss about living in the PI... the snakes and the giant black scorpions. I still have the habit of "tapping out" my shoes before I put them on.

Not to the point, but, Tril, your photo is gorgeous! I used to have a cat whose nickname was Trillium, because she trilled a lot. But the trillium we planted in her honor upon her departure was white. I never knew about such gorgous ones as yours!

Trillium are my favorite wildflower. I especially love the red/maroon ones that grow in abundance around here! Smile

Thank you for both those posts Walshevek. Reminds me why my Zone 3b is such a wonderful zone! I am okay with boa constrictors but I can not deal with poisonous things.
