EEEEECK! A Snake!

The girls decided to watch mommy "turn" the compost. I think they got more than they bargained for.  They had been prepared to see mice. As the cat (after nearly 8 years) has become a "mouser" and this was the most logical area for them to be in. They wanted to see a "mouse nest" what they got however was a snake. One girl went "cool" one girl went "EEEEECK".  Of course they still had to watch mommy move said snake and watch it slither away. Then of course they wanted to try and find it again. I told them next week when we turn the compost again, maybe we'll find it again or maybe a different one. Either way, I think anytime mommy turns the compost she's going to have an audience.
