This American has become friends with a little snake who has taken up residence in front of her bay window

One day Bootsy the cat was hanging out by his screen door when he suddenly noticed a snake in need of help and immediately alerted his owner Melissa Taylor. She realized that the poor guy was stuck in a hole and couldn’t get out.

Once he retreated into the hole, the young woman decided to come to his aid. For this, she took a drill and worked to enlarge the hole so that the snake, which was later named Snickers, could break free. “It only took a few minutes with the drill, but it took Snickers about 30 minutes to feel safe enough to try and get out the bigger hole” said Melisa Taylor, Bootsy’s mistress, to our American colleagues from the specialized animal media The Dodo.

Eventually, after that first encounter, Snickers slipped away and Melissa Taylor paid no mind, until he returned. “Amazingly, he came back the next day or two. My cat spotted him climbing out of the hole and looking out the window” she said. When she realized Snickers was apparently living in her screen door, she wanted to make sure he was protected. She wanted everyone to know it was her home and not to be disturbed, so she put up signs.

A snake member of the family?

There are now several signs hung above the Snickers house, a situation that is both humorous and amusing that certainly made those who had the opportunity to see them laugh. “Most people either laugh or think it’s cute and wholesome. I was thanked a lot for having saved him from his little hole” said Melissa Taylor. The young woman does not see Snickers every day, but when he does, she is always happy to know that everything is going well for him. And even when she doesn’t have direct eye contact with him, she likes to think he’s there, safe. Now, Snickers is a valued member of the family now.
