After work yesterday I took my boyz for their daily afternoon walk and we ran into a cat who was batting at a snake. I was so amused and was hoping to get a pic of that, so I brought the boyz home and grabbed my camera. When I went back, the cat was more interested in getting attention from me and kept rubbing up against my legs, inviting me to pet him. I got a couple of photo's of the cat and a few of the snake, but none of them together. Plus, I got to pet and snuggle a cute gray kitty.

This evening, I took my boys for their same evening walk and I was sad to run across the snake who was apparently recently killed. It was roughly 50-60 feet from where it was yesterday and it had three or four puncture wounds with fresh blood on the pavement. As much as I don't like snakes, I was very sad to see this. That same cat, was sitting nearby. Sadly, I can only assume that he had killed the snake and it makes me very sad because it isn't as though he killed the snake because he needed the meal to survive. I completely understand the way the food chain works and survival of the fittest, but I don't like to see that an animal was killed.... just because.

Rest in peace poor/harmless lil garter snake (gardener snake)! You obviously didn't stand a chance against the mean 'ol kitty.
