Do cats keep snakes away?

Answer

Cats do not keep snakes out of yards or houses, although they enjoy hunting. However, guarding against snakes is not what interests them, warns the Snake Removal website. Exposing cats to snakes may result in serious injury from non-poisonous snakes and possible death from venomous ones.

Snakes generally avoid cats and dogs, looking only for a sunny spot, a meal or just a place to pass through the yard, states Article Garden. When threatened by a cat who wants to play, even a harmless snake may bite. The majority of snake bites occur on a cat's head, neck and legs, according to Cat World. These bites are often hard to detect due to swelling or long cat hair and when undetected, they often lead to serious infections.
