I took the puppy out this morning and found this snake in the grass. I have to admit, it gave me a fright because it’s the first snake I’ve seen here since we moved in almost five years ago! I’ve heard from the neighbors that there’s a really big snake that was sighted last summer, but I never had the luck in seeing it. Thank goodness for my lucky streak!
With luck continuing to be on my side, Buster was oblivious which was even better. I can’t imagine trying to wrangle a dangling snake out of his mouth in the wee hours of the morning before coffee! Who am I kidding – I would be screaming my head completely off and probably have a heart attack right there if that were to happen! I am not good with snakes at all!
Quickly, I refocused him to another part of the yard while I kept an eye on said snake. After he attended to his morning business, I daringly walked him near to where the snake had been. That’s when I noticed that the snake hadn’t moved from when I first saw it and realized that it was no longer alive. Whew. Sorry snake, but I breathed a huge sigh of relief.
I kept hoping that perhaps the hawk that dropped it (that’s my theory) would come back to retrieve it, but that never happened. All day I awaited one of the many predators outside to enjoy a free snack, I mean snake (haha), but unfortunately, none of them were interested in free take out. So I guess one of us will be removing him from the lawn sooner rather than later.
In the meantime, in the basement, another carcass was found, this time it was a mouse. What’s with Mother Nature today? Two wildlife deaths in one day? I wonder what the foreboding message is here. Any ideas?
When looking up dead snake spiritual meaning, I found this: A dead snake comes as an omen that somebody’s trickery, lies, and deceit has come to an end. Whether their attempts to manipulate or deceive you were successful or not may never be known. But, the dead snake’s omen endures regardless—you are leaving behind anxious times where trusting people was difficult, and now you are coming to a point in your life where you can count on and value the honesty on your inner circle.
When looking up dead mouse spiritual meaning, I found this: So a dead mouse in your house is not always an omen for something bad. It can be the message from the universe to pay attention, change the course of action, and see what opportunities there are coming your way. So when you find yourself facing difficulties in life or need guidance on how to live it better, look around for dead mice! They may have some important messages that will help you make decisions about your future.
Dead mice often see as symbols of death, especially when they appear out of nowhere or without any visible injury. Seeing dead mice is considered unlucky because it is indicative of someone dying soon – usually yourself! And this means that dead mice meaning should never be taken lightly because people do die suddenly from time to time even though there might not seem like anything wrong at first sight with them. Dead mice also represent people who have recently died so seeing one may mean that person has passed on and is no more in this world.
Others claim dead mice pieces are omens of a journey you need to undertake, and the dead mouse omen will be delivered by those who are either close or loved ones come to visit from the next realm. They want you to know they’re there for you, even after their physical death!
Some people believe dead mice represent journeys or new opportunities in life. So seeing them means your loved ones have come down from heaven with messages for you – either warning or welcoming news will soon surface! But before leaving, these spirits ask us never to forget about them because once you die out here, a lot of changes will take place.
In more general terms, dead mice mean someone’s death will soon come and it is time to fix things with the person because this might be your last chance!
Wow! Who know that there could be so many interpretations! Please feel free to deliver any messages you get from this post (if you get them) as I’d appreciate any insight you may have!
I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday!
Lots of thought has gone into dead mice…interesting.
I know…it’s really interesting.
It is an interesting mix. Over here in Oz if you have both deaths it usually means someone has poisoned the mice to get rid of them, then the snake has eaten the mouse before it has fully died and that has poisoned the snake. A bit of a chain reaction. Just be careful a neighbor hasn’t got poison around for the mice because for a dog it is very nasty. A friends dog got into their garage and ate the rodent killer pellets and it was a horrible death for the dog, it gives internal bleeding and kidney failure. Sorry for the bad news but it is giving me warning bells. Your in your spring with plenty of food around for the mice so I can only think it has gotten into something like that. If you have any around just make sure your pup can’t get at it 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
Thank you Mark, good to know. Snake was thin with no mouse and mouse was in basement so they weren’t near each other. But I will be careful and ask neighbors. They have 2 German shepards so I doubt they would have mice pellets outside…but I will stay aware. Hope all is well in Oz! 🤗🙏🦋❤️
Rain non stop for so long I’m developing webbing between my toes 🤣 But we did just have 2 solid days of a lovely 24C. It’s full winter in a week so it is rather odd…but I’ll take it 😂
May the better weather continue! God bless! 🙏
How interesting! And quite unusual to find a dead snake anywhere but on a road.
I know! Also, when we picked him up to dispose of him, his mouth was wide open in rigor-mortis.
A lot to think about hun!
Yvonne, Interesting interpretations.
For me, a dead mouse is one less to be concerned about.
LOL! Me too Alan! 🙂
