A Cat Got A Snake Up Her Nose But Didn't Have A Hissy Fit

It's nothing to sneeze at.

Well, that’s paws for concern.

A cat in Mendocino County, California, had an experience that some might find hysterical (emphasis on the “hissss”).

The black tabby, whose name is Marian, somehow found herself with a small snake in her nose, according to the owner, a YouTuber known as Natemanafter.

As you can hear in the video above, the clumsy cat is introduced like this: “So, this is a cat, who has a snake hanging from her nose. Her name is Marian. We don’t know what the snake’s name is.”


The owner discovered the cat’s predicament after she began sneezing uncontrollably.

Luckily, the owner was able to safely pull the snake free from his cat’s nose. The cat was unhurt.

Marian’s owner, who wasn’t identified by his real name, told it was unclear how the snake came to be stuck in the cat’s nose.

“Our best guess is that it tried to get free while she was eating it, but only managed to wriggle into her sinuses ... and then out her left nostril,” he said.
