MILLSAP MATTERS: Community celebrates Homecoming

The cooler fall temperatures set the stage for pumpkin spice coffee creamer, which I did find at Walmart. For me, it makes fall official!. Watch your step as you enjoy your coffee on the patio as snakes seem to be enjoying the cooler temps as well. Rumors of copperhead sightings will get your attention quickly. Chad and DeShaun Edwards killed a rattlesnake on their porch this week. Where are all the cats? They charm snakes, right? My mother was sure of it. Google did not agree! It says that snakes and cats eat the same kind of critters, that a cat would be curious about a slithering snake just as it is curious about anything that slithers, but that a venomous snake could strike a cat (I have never heard of a cat being snake bit). Google says that snakes may try to avoid cats as they do kill or eat small snakes, but they don’t keep them away or charm them. So, cats have no special powers!
