Thanks, UTH, for reminding me it could have been MUCH worse. At least I was clothed. ;-)
Lin, I thought I had it bad when confronted with a small spider..lol I do not know how you manage with snakes roaming around the house *Shudders*
i'm with zoom, i would die.
but i have such a phobia that i even hate the WORD and instead call them "BCs" (bad creatures)
lol I like the logic there, Hurshy :-)
i wouldn't have thought anyone would call it LOGIC...
That's my phobia too. BBut I have 4 feline dependentsbso I "woman'd" up, armed myself with a cane, & as instructed by Animal Control, threw a blanket on the thing and waited for them to arrive to remove. Happily there have been no further sightings since Monday. Exterminator is coming tomorrow to do a full house inspection & fix any unorthodox access points to my house. Thx to all for the sympathy - starting to feel a little better. But it is weird to be afraid to walk into your own kitchen...
i would have grabbed my cats and hightailed it out of there
then possibly had to move
Moving is not exactly a financial option, but the thought crossed my mind. My cats all headed for the top floor & hid after Snake #1. Two of my cats "told" me where Snake #2 was the next day. After Snake #3 (& hopefully the last one) was removed on Monday, my cats have returned to 'owning the house', so I am feeling moderately optimistic that maybe it is just the 5 of us in here now. Fingers crossed.
what i don't understand is why they don't make sure there aren't unorthodox access points when they BUILD a house
unless they do, and holes happen as the house settles? how old is your house?
20 yrs - townhouse. I am hoping the exterminators can answer some of those questions...
yikes, mine is closer to 30... post what you find out about holes!
Done with greens
* sneaks in, with a large container of caulk, and fills any/all holes in my 64 year old house* - thankfully snakes are rare in the here, and prefer to be outdoors. I knew there was a reason why I love Wales!
my house is 75 yrs old, not seen any snakes around here tho ...Thankfully
Did it, no green, one nap, one unlucky guess, two lucky tandem guesses, both right.
