Snakes for some reason are attracted to Model T's but if you have a guard cat, the snakes don't have a chance. This cat seemed content to just play with it....so far!
They both are probably thinking, what now....
Quick while it can still wiggle ask the cat if you can have to fish with great bait for muskie at that size
Your cat is leaking oil out of it's rear seal.
Our vet was not sure how to replace the rear grease seals on our cat. That cat hangs out under our T a lot and likes to rub, so he gets a bit oiled at times.
