Cool spank that pussy with the great tit and get the snake out (graphic!)

... that was exactly, what I had to do yesterday morning!

I've no idea what brought you here in the first place but the pussy I saw outside, after lifting the curtains, was our own tomcat "Ozelot". And I was really upset by what I saw, because he had caught a Great Tit - stone dead! I emidiately went outside and chased him half way around the house befor he surrendered and left the Great Tit to me. To make my dislike and point fairly clear I gave him a good spanking with that very same, dead Great Tit - and then some. He knew he deserved it! At least I felt he had a bad conscience, from the beginning.
What to do next? Right, now get the Snake out! In particular, it was now time for "Emma", my old female Cornsnake (Pantherophis guttatus) to enter the scene and to finish off the job on the Great Tit, so her life had not gone entirely wasted. I plucked the pinnions (the tail feathers already went astray whilst spanking the cat) and handed the unfortunate Tit over to Emma:
#1


It was a laborious thing, but after c. 40min. all that was left were some feet:
#2

It takes not even five minutes to swallow a full grown mouse. Here you see how difficult it was to get the Tit down in one piece: it took 45min! The beak is stinging the insides and the wings stick out on either side of the mouth, blocking the whole process for a good time. At last they could be bent into the right direction and all went down well. But we don't need to repeat this one ...


So (short) is life!
Falk

The story and pictures are both gruesome and facinating. Also the thread title deserves some sort of prize as the most unlikely you'd expect to find on the forum!

Wow, and photos, too. Amazing. Definitely deserves a prize and perhaps an extra star for the title!

Re: spank that pussy with the great tit and get the snake out (graphic!)

I was wondering if a snake is not used to consuming a bird (which has difficult spiky legs and beak compared to a mouse) whether feeding a bird like this might actually be dangerous?

By the way, if a cat was able to catch a garden bird like a tit, I would assume the bird was not in its prime any more!

A cat collar with a bell can save a substantial amount of wildlife.

Re: spank that pussy with the great tit and get the snake out (graphic!)

I was grinning ear-2-ear when I wrote this - and am still. Talk of the little joys of life

@all
I am tickled by the expressed appreciation, as far as the headline goes. Of course you'll need all that went into it at hand, which might be most peoples problem!? But then, it just happened to be the case, in that order, and I realised the "potential" behind it

Ian,
I also wondered how "Ozelot" managed to catch the Tit in the first place. I know he is an experienced hunter (for mice at least), but to catch a bird, well, needs some luck on his side. It was -6C outside and I guess the birds reflexes had suffered some...?!
As for feeding birds to the snake: there should be no problem in general. It looks worse then it is. The one thing which does make the gulping difficult is the birds slender and weak neck. There simply is a lack of support and a big gap where the teeth don't find something to grab on. In mainly bird hunting snakes you'll see loooong teeth, not only to get a better chance in catching them but to overcome the "grip problem", to which the feathers add their share too BTW.

John,
I hear you! We refused to get him a collar of any sort, mainly because I fear he might hang himself, on one of the many nails sticking out, hooks and trapps or what else, in our old old barn - or the neighbours etc.


A side note and BIG compliment to the Admin, Moderators and forum in general:
I am really glad to be allowed to experiment with the little abilities of the English language I have, as I do enjoy myself in the process. Thank you, for your patience and tollerance, your English humor and good manners in general!

Thanks,
Falk


... who was once permanently banned from an American BowHUNTING (!) forum - with lots of blood and guts and other stuff, rated as disgusting by normal standards - for the use of the word "Tit" in his tag line (see below) ...

Great title, great photos and great thread!

What an interesting sequence of events. In fact I am wondering if it has happened to anyone else...

Should I type the title into Google and see what I find?
