Crystal vs the Snake.
(S.E. Q.L.D. AUSTRALIA)
Crystal had 6 kittens in her 1st litter,they were puurrrfect! one night i was woken by this real loud cat wailing and hissing, i ran to the bathroom where they were and just as i got there, out slithered a 6 - 7 ft carpet snake (python) chased by crystal hissing and clawing at it! she chased it out of the house. 1 kitten had bite marks on its lower end but fully recovered.
for the next 6 months crystal always laid down in a spot where she could watch where the snake exited the house.
