Woman comes home to find her cat has been sᴡᴀʟʟᴏᴡᴇᴅ by a SNAKE in Thailand

A 17ft-long python that ᴋɪʟʟᴇᴅ and sᴡᴀʟʟᴏᴡᴇᴅ a beloved pet cat was forced to spit out the poor moggy by its ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ owner.

The enormous snake sᴡᴀʟʟᴏᴡᴇᴅ the ginger tabby named Bobo after slithering into a home in Pathum Thani, Thailand, on Wednesday morning. It then curled up under the kitchen sink in a comfy place to digest the three-year-old cat weighing around 3kg.

Owner Saowarak Charoen, 59, returned home to find a large snake, prompting her to call the police. Two policemen, three animal rescuers and a reporter arrived shortly after and dragged out the snake with an enormous bulge in its stomach.

The men then moved and twisted the python to force it to regurgitate family Bobo cat, which appeared feet-first from its jaws covered in slime. The stomach-churning scenes were caught on camera.

Dᴇᴠᴀsᴛᴀᴛᴇᴅ owner Saowarak, who keeps two other cats, said she had now buried Bobo in the garden. “I went to the kitchen noticed the cupboard under the sink was open,” she said. “There was a tail pointing out of it and I thought the snake was small, so I ran outside and called the police. When they arrived they said it was enormous. I was sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ.”

Wildlife officers measured the python to be just over five metres long. The snake was released back into the wild.

It was uncommon for pets to be ᴇᴀᴛᴇɴ by the protected reptiles, but warned owners to keep their cats from exploring their neighbourhoods.

The snakes are well-camouflaged ᴀᴍʙᴜsʜ hunters and lie in wait until their ᴘʀᴇʏ walks in their path. Pythons use their incredible strength to tightly wrap around ᴘʀᴇʏ animals and scientists think ᴠɪᴄᴛɪᴍs either ᴅɪᴇ by restricted ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ flow, leading to a ᴄᴀʀᴅɪᴀᴄ ᴀʀʀᴇsᴛ, or because the diaphragm is ᴄᴏɴsᴛʀɪᴄᴛᴇᴅ and so the lungs cannot inflate with oxygen.
