Like I don’t have enough to worry about…

A couple of posts on our community message board caught my eye today:

Hi all,

My brother who lives in PM (a neighbouring community) saw a huge snake in his living room y’day. Apparently, there are snake catchers in the area who come and take the snakes away without killing them. Am forwarding the phone nos. below, just fyi. Hope we never have to use them :-)
Here are the numbers:

Closest one:
Mahesh in Varthur:

Mohan (Bhanasvadi)

The attached video shows how a professional Bangalore snake catcher does his job.

Ciao, neighbour one

Then the second, which followed pretty quickly and made my eyes bug out a little lot .

Thanks for sharing the info.

In Ozone (our community), you can also call Prestige help desk. Ozone has one gardener who catches snakes. He caught a cobra from our side yard few months back, with a stick, did not kill it. Also, in the help desk office, the snake catchers numbers are printed and put up, so if we can’t find the numbers handy, they can tell us the numbers :)

I am good with the geckos, spiders, frogs, bees, and other small mostly harmless creatures. No one warned me about the frigging COBRAS in the yard and possibly house!!

  • COBRAS??? OMG. Not sure what to say to that one.

  • Alison says:

    Okay, let’s look at the positives here. Your neighbours seem really nice. They shared crucial information and are animal lovers, in that they seem to be only providing information for the non-kill snake catchers. Also, having snakes around will help you easily identify those that may be parseltongues, which as we all know, can be associated with dark magic.

    that would have me sleepless!

    lol! there was a cobra in our compound once. the dog cornered it and kept it there until the snake catcher came. i got some great pictures! ;) then again, i didn’t have any lils around at the time… cobras are sacred and considered good luck. make you feel any better? ;)

    • Lilbunnyrabbitz says:

      Yes, if nothing else, it explains all the talk of no kill snake catchers. Clearly we need to get a dog to corner snakes!!!

      I am pretty calm about this. I haven’t seen any snakes at all, happy in my false sense of security.

  • Deb says:

    I quite like Alison’s response!
    But me, I’d be freaking right out! I *really* hope you have nothing to worry about.

    • Lilbunnyrabbitz says:

      Ditto to Alison’s response :) I am sure we have nothign to worry about. Right? RIGHT?! :) I am actually pretty OK with this.

  • Vicky says:

    OMG. Krista you are a brave brave woman. I would have packed up and headed home by now ;)
