A homeowner in Applegate noticed her cat acting strange in her kitchen. After studying her cat for a moment, she realized herself & her cat weren’t the only ones in the kitchen. This small juvenile rattlesnake was able to get in through a door that was left open for a few hours in the evening. It was late in the season, and the nights had begun getting rather chilly. This little rattlesnake had a streak of luck when he realized a nice warm place was open for business, unbeknownst to the homeowner & the cat. We removed this little kitchen intruder around a half hour later.
