Below is the tweet which says it all. It has to be said, by the way, that the wildcat ancestor of the domestic cat is very capable of dealing with a snake. Therefore, this domestic cat has inherited that skill. Although cats will recognise snakes as dangerous, they are able to confront them. Perhaps the most capable of all cat species in confronting and killing a snake is the diminutive sand cat. They feed on snakes in the desert. No problem, no fuss, they are quicker than snakes and they have a very cute face to boot!
