Every pet owner knows that the moment you let an animal into your home, you’re pretty much giving disaster and chaos an open invitation to lodge with you. Even the most benign little fluffy bunny can spell catastrophe for its owner if left to its own devices. Furniture gets scratched, bins turned over and raked through, pillows get chewed, carpets stained with excrement, the floor’s littered with hairballs and if you’re really lucky then there’s usually an eviscerated rodent lying on the welcome mat waiting for you every morning. Nice.
Now you can take all these myriad woes and worries and multiply them by a thousand depending on how big or dangerous your pet is. There’s no-one I feel worse for in that regard than snake owners.
There’s much to enjoy about raising a slithering, scaly friend.
