This beautiful creature is our newest pet. His name is Sammie and he is a corn snake. He is just a baby and will grow to be about 4 feet long, he is currently about a foot long. His markings are gorgeous and the kids are smitten with him.
Last night we were awoken at 3 am by a loud screeching noise. Our cat brought a live mouse in the house and he decided that our bedroom would be an excellent room to play with the mouse. We didn't think that was such a great idea. I jumped out of bed and opened our door to the backyard and the cat was worried we would take his pet away from him. He grabbed his toy and ran outside. Boy, were we relieved. There is nothing worse than chasing/capturing a live mouse in the middle of the night. We have had to do that many times.
I will post the next installment of our Adoption Journey on Tuesday...the excitement is just beginning...stay tuned.
See you tomorrow for Fun Monday....
