I'd like you to meet Kali.
She is our 4-year-old ball python. We've had her since she was just a few weeks old.
Now, I know most people don't have snake for pets. And I certainly don't look like the type to own a snake. The funniest part is, she actually is MY snake. My husband gave her to me for our first Valentine's Day. I'm sure you are all thinking, WHAT?! For Valentine's Day?! What kind of husband gives his wife a snake for Valentine's Day?!
Mine does. I'd always wanted one. One day, not too long after we were married, we were at the pet store and they had baby ball pythons. That's when he found out that I was a snake girl. I cooed over them like a normal person would over a cute puppy or kitty. And the rest is history. She's just as much a part of the family as a dog or cat would be and is a lot easier to take care of! No hair to vacuum up, no accidents on the rug.
I'm linking her up to this week's Shutter Love over at Trendy Treehouse. Please go check it out and vote for us!
