I wish I had a snake but the cat is stupid. I want some mice to. I had a blow snake and my cousin tortured it when I wasn't home and the snake got violent. I had to get rid of it. It got bad after that. Then one time I also caught on in the field, a garden snake and my friend kept it at his house and lost it. The mom took a shower and it crawled out of the drain and died. Drowned
Garter snakes are part aquatic so drowning is nearly impossible unless it was stuck. I own 2 cats and my snakes are perfectly secured in their enclosures. I don't let anybody but myself handle or care for my snakes, absolutely NO one.
