Deffer a 12 year old deaf Siamese/Tiger cat and  Ball Python adults are best of friends so to speak. They curl up and sleep together on my bed. I really love admiring how they have taken a mutual interest in each other over the past eight years with no negative behavior toward each other. It sure would be nice if humanity could learn from snakes how to co-exist with all living creatures. There is SO much we can learn from animals if people would only take the time to notice.
