RE: OT:HUMOR - Cats& shovels

Great story!  Living on a ranch in Arizona, I am familiar with 
rattlesnake country, and have had many scares when hearing anything 
close to a rattle.  I've come across many while riding the desert.  
In that case, I feel I'm on their turf, respect them, and leave them 
alone.  In my yard is a different matter - they die.  Recently a 
friend's 9 year old was bitten while retrieving a ping pong ball at 
an exclusive Tucson resort.  He spent several days in the hospital, 
including two in intensive care.  This is rare, most people are 
bitten as a result of trying to mess with them. (Stupidity is painful)
By the way, cats are one of the best deterrents to rattlers.  I keep 
outside cats to control the mouse, rat, and ground squirrel 
populations that abound around me.  When you have few rodents, you 
rarely will have a rattlesnake.  
Bye the way, Rosalie, I don't know - those borers and slugs sound 
pretty scary to me!
