Au Speaks Out: Cobra!

my pet cobra was dis big....
i am an indoor kitty now but in de evenings i sit in de garden and watch de sun go down. 

on friday i found a snake.  it was a cobra.  it was standing up and hissing at me. 

i was having a good time when suddenly de female rushes owt, and grabs me and rushes me into de house.

dis with no warning or, "ekscuse me, Au may i pick you up"!

my pet could haf grown up to look like dis
den she rushes owt and shouts for Target.  when he says hello she grabs him! 

de fur brain wif de ekspanding stripes escaped and ran towards my pet.  but de female got him before he could play wif it.

den she got bak into the house and slammed all de doors.  she called de fire brigade who took away my pet.

dis is not fair.  it was my snake.  she had no right to konfiscate it.

de female forgot to take a picture.  but i kan tell you dat de snake was as long as me when i stretch owt.  it was de purfekt size to look me in de face.

Your pet? Your PET? So glad no one was hurt and your pet has been removed. How scary!



We thought it was bad enough when we had two water moccassions (cottonmouths -- most poisonous water snake in SE US)in our yard. Daddy deadden them both.

But a cobra.
Au you are furry brave!

Cobra!!! Oh Au, that was not a good choice of pet, it would have killed you or Target. Thank goodness you're not hurt, and neither was the female when she rescued you and Target!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

What were you thinking Au? I'm glad you and Target and your meowmum are all OK. That cobra is no toy or pet, OK? purrr....meow!

Cezar and Léia said...

Dear Au,
I would be very anxious if I could met a "cobra"like that!
I love your first shot, you are so relaxed!

*** I'm a indoor kitty as well!

Whisppy said...

Oh my my my! I can understand why de female grabbed the both of you and shut the doors! Au-Meow, I think you should just stick to field mice as pets. :)

Gattina said...

Oh sweet Au, you really did not need that pet, trust me on that one pal!

Dexter said...

That is freaking me out! Glad you escaped. Some critters just don't make good playmates.


Teddy Westlife said...

Very rude Au. Very rude.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Did you think that Mr Cobra would be your furrend - we think it was more likely that you were going to be his dinner!! Your mom was very brave saving you from him twice.
Take care in the garden.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
