C and I have had quite a shock this morning ... our cat Sam was "swallowed" by a Python some time during the night !!!
He went out late in the evening as usual but did not return as was his custom ... went looking for him twice during the night, as we both had a "gut" feeling something was not right. It was early this morning that C saw what she thought was a Monitor Lizard in the back yard, but then realized that it was in fact an 8 - 10 foot Python with this huge "bulge" half way down its length ... there was evidence of a short scuffle, but we heard nothing so it must have been quick, with Sam being caught by surprise and possibly asleep at the time.
The Python was still in the back yard as it couldn't get back through the fence, so we called the wild life rescue team, who, after confirming it was Sam inside the Python, took it away ... released into the bush well away from civilization and with a meal in its stomach that will keep it happy for several weeks I'm told.
No more animals I'm afraid, as we both agree we couldn't go through this sort of thing yet again ... just stick with a few pet frogs instead...
Peas be with ewe
