Most of us would say, "why did it have to be a snake?"  But there's one cat at South Texas who doesn't let the presence of a full-grown rattler disrupt his cool.

According to the report, local residents felt the kitty was not being as cautious as he ought to be given the presence of a poisonous snake mere feet away.  That's just like parents, stepping in when the fun was just about to begin.

Have you ever seen anything so nutty? I'd be squealing like a little girl!

Something the reporter pointed out in the audio is that this is the time of year, as temperatures start to rise, in which snakes awaken from hibernation. I had no idea they hibernate it in the first place. Maybe the brave among us could find out where the snakes live and kill them in their sleep! Like I said, why snakes?!
