A woman from India had a peculiar pet she owned in her house, with a 4-meter long python that she loved and adored. But she was surprised that one day the python suddenly stopped eating.
The snake’s lack of appetite caught the attention of the snake owner, and after many attempts of feeding her pet, she felt like she needed to bring the snake to the vet.
The vet listened and carefully asked the woman “Does your snake sleep with you at night, wrap around you closely and spread out throughout its length?”
Expecting it to be good news, the woman answered “Yes, yes! It does it every day and it makes me so sad because I see it asking something of me, and I cannot help it feel better.”
But then the vet answered “Madam, your python is not sick. It’s preparing to eat you.
Every time it creeps and hugs you, wrapping around your body, it’s checking your size to weigh how big a meal you are and how it should get prepared before attack. And yes, it doesn’t eat in order to make enough space to digest you more easily.”
The lesson of the story is, be careful with people who you let close to you. For you’ll never know what their true intentions may be. Always see beyond their motives.
