Will a cat mess with a garter snakes or vice versa?
Mine is an 8-month old male cat, very curious and playful
Yep. They think they make great little "presents" for us humans. I beg to differ. ;)
My cat used to bring them home dead all the time.
oh yeah, my dad's small dogs bring home all kinds of things :(
Clearly that cat will play with the snake until it is dead. The snake will defend itself until it can escape, it is dead or the cat is dead.
Don't the snake bite the cat & scare him away?
I had a cat that lived to catch and eat garter snakes. Totally grossed my mom out. Lol!
