Rattlesnake Right Outside

Occurred on March 7, 2021 / Scottsdale, Arizona, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was in my room working on the computer and I heard a whoosh and rattle (I thought a pipe had burst) and came running out to the living room and approached the front door ready to go outside. I was abruptly stopped in my tracks when I saw the snake (and the screen door not completely closed). It is a phantom door that springs open with a light touch and was afraid the snake would strike and open the door. My cat was at the screen and the snake was clearly antagonized by the cat. Every time the cat leaned towards the screen, the rattle got louder and faster - and the snake's head was darting side to side. The main door was open with a doorstop - and I was too afraid to move to shut the door. I was afraid if I moved it would strike. Finally got my shit together and got a broom - and slid the door stopper out and closed the door with the broom handle. As the door was slamming shut, we could see the snake strike the door (from the window on the side of the door). The snake bounced off the door and just stayed in place for about 20-25 minutes. I was about to call the fire department to have it removed but when I checked again it had already slithered off."
