I just went out to check some clothes I had hanging on the line. I noticed two of our cats were prowling around, but I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Then I heard something move right next to my foot and looked down to see a 3 + foot long Eastern Milk Snake. I ran in to get my camera so I could snap a few pics to make it easier to identify if he slithered away. The way he was shaking his tail made me think for a minute that it might be a juvenile Rattlesnake or something. Thanks to high-speed internet and Google, it only took a minute to discover that it is a non-poisonous snake.
I am not really afraid of snakes, I've had them as pets, but I wasn't too keen on the look this guy gave me when I tried to move him along with a stick. Then, at one point, I came outside to see one of our cats harassing the poor thing and it then proceeded to climb up in a small sapling. He's still there now. Not sure on how he plans to get down, but I am not going to be helping him out.
