Ringneck Snake

We came home last night to find the cats annoying this little guy (or girl) last night....
It's a baby ringneck snake. According to the internet they grow to two feet in length and eat lots of things we want to be eaten, like slugs and newborn rodents. And they are food for other things as well; like toads (of which we have plenty,) raccoons, birds, etc.
We think we had a full grown ringneck snake try to get in the patio door a couple months ago since the description fits. Ahhh, the joys of living in the country.
