    Re: Help ASAP, my ball python got attacked by cats

    May i suggest for future consideration, get your cats de-clawed, they don't need claws as long as they are "House" cats.......

    Declawing a cat can cause all sorts of issues for the cat. It's extremely painful for them, has a high risk of infections, and can cause a lot of behavioral issues including refusing to use the little box because it hurts their paws to go on the litter. It's essentially the same as having your fingers all cut off at the knuckles, except worse because they have to put pressure on them constantly to walk. Please do not do that.

    Re: Help ASAP, my ball python got attacked by cats

    I myself would not own a cat and B.P in the same house together. All it would take is 1 time to forget to fully close my B.Ps bedroom door, just even to go outside for a few minutes, and that cat would be on top the dresser trying to get into the B.Ps tank, or at the minimum, scaring the living day lights out of the B.P, not going to risk it, thats JUST ME...

    I get your concern, but it's just about being responsible and paying attention to what you're doing. We have two cats that live happily with 4 snakes, 3 geckos, a mean conure, and a ton of fish. If you're taking the same precautions that you take without a cat in the house, then having a cat isn't going to hurt anything.

    Not suggesting anyone get a cat, they're terrible people and super shady. Ours owe me $30 that they got from me while they were running a pyramid scheme.

    I wouldn't either, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it can't be done safely by some either. We're all different, some of us are more distractible or forgetful, or just have too much "going on" to be successful. Having a room for snakes or other small pets that you can close off can make all the difference too. I have a number of snakes & 2 dogs, & there are some dogs that cannot be trusted either- we have to remain vigilant & never assume that our other pets will always behave when our back is turned. We're better off to assume that they won't, & make modifications accordingly.
