The two cats were happily hopping around slapping at something. It was a black snake, at least a foot long, very skinny. Does anyone know what kind of snake it might be? I was pleased to see the chameleons after moving back to Florida but I can do without the snake visitors!

Sounds like a black racer. They're totally harmless to humans. They keep insect populations down.

2 of our 4 cats live as professional kidnappers. They kidnap lizards mostly, but have brought home a few snakes. They really love having "pets" of their own.

Mine would love having a wiggly pet. Cats are indoor only but the lizards get into the lanai off and on. I try to get to them first and prevent a slow death from kitty claws. I've tried to close the places they get in but I'm thinking it's hopeless.
