Cat Faces Off With Rattlesnake in Viral Photo

One fearless feline isn’t afraid to use one of his nine lives. Police in Texas are warning residents about the dangers of rattlesnakes – and getting their point across rather well with the help of a viral photo that shows a huge rattlesnake facing off against and abnormally calm looking cat:

The Laguna Vista Police Department posted a series of photos on their Facebook page, including the one with the cat, along with a warning:

Generally, rattlesnakes emerge from hibernation in March or April, or when the average daytime temperatures reach and remain about 60F and higher. The snakes are then most active when the temperatures are between 80-90F. This means that the snakes may be active most of the day during the spring, and during the early mornings and late afternoons throughout the summer. Please be careful!

They are calling the cat the “Fearless Laguna Vista Cat!” By the way, the snake was humanely trapped and the cat is safe.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
