DO CATS KEEP VENOMOUS SNAKES AWAY [email protected]

This answer was rated:

will cats charm snakes or run away?
Hello,

No, cats don't have any special charms or ways to keep venomous snakes away. Cats will catch and kill small snakes, just as they will any small prey animal, but cats are regularly bitten and killed by venomous snakes. If you have venomous snakes in your area, I certainly wouldn't count on a cat keeping them away. You'll need to take precautions to protect both yourself and your cat.
