20060914 - Misfit & another snake - 106-0689 - underbelly
Image by Rev. Xanatos Satanicos Bombasticos (ClintJCL)
Here you can see the snake's underbelly. It was easily identifiable via google, as there is a species of snake that specifically has a yellow ring around its neck, and an orange underbelly. It had some really generic name like "yellow-ring snake".
For video of Misfit playing with the snake: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqwQUGvDiQU
Back-story: We noticed Misfit had something, and it was a snake! He dropped it into his water fountain, and we had to take it apart. We let him play with it for awhile, then put it in a bottle. The bottle drove him crazy -- he attacked the movement within every 5 minutes for days. It was his new favorite toy -- the pet of our pet. So we kept the snake in captivity for a week or so. He was not interested in our house crickets, which we joked that Misfit caught for him. After a week, it not only needed probably needed food, but also stank, so we released it. It did need to be "watered" a few times during the week, too, which no doubt increased the stink-power.

First picture of Pounce
Image by tychay
This is my first picture of my first kitten, We found him the day I got back from Mt. Whitney. We named him Pounce and he was a kitten on the street abandoned by his mother along with two other littermates. A neighbor left food out for them and as usual he had managed to hog one of the bowls all for himself. Taking on another cat was a big responsibility, but he was so cute. He was about 4 weeks old.
We put him in the bathroom to protect him from Gibson, but he was scared of these human things and hid in the corner. When Gibson showed up, it was love at first Pounce and has been ever since.
(When we went back to visit the other kittens, they were gone. I guess other people in the complex adopted them.)
You can’t see how tiny he is in this shot but he's really tiny. Also the flash causes the characteristic green/yellow reflection off the tapetum of the cat's eyes.
