“If your animal is doing something in the house they wouldn’t normally do, keep that in mind,” Ricky Owens concluded.
The strange behavior of a domestic cat from Dartmoor, Australia, in the state of Victoria, alarmed its owner and helped him avoid a deadly attack by a tiger snake that was hiding among his purchases, according to local media. ABC.
After arriving home with the products, Ricky Owens left his house again for about two hours. When he came home, he noticed that his old cat, nicknamed Gordon, was behaving strangely. The cat hit one of the chairs, opened it, and then jumped back.
Although Owens lifted the chair, he found nothing and decided to go to the pub. When he got home, Gordon was still behaving strangely, attacking the bags he had brought from the store near the refrigerator.
The Australian picked up the parcel and saw a three-foot-long tiger snake entering his home.
“Me and the cat and the snake, we all jumped in the air, and I threw the cat out,” the man commented. Meanwhile, the frightened creeper also tried to hide under the refrigerator.
Finally, Owens took the snake out of its lair and threw it outside.
“If your animal is doing something in the house that it wouldn’t normally do, keep that in mind,” the man said.
Tiger snakes are among the most venomous snakes in the world.
