I'd guess that you might likely have a ball (Royal) Python. They are generally very gentle and do have a tenedancy to curl into a ball (hence their common name.) They also usually are only 3-4 feet as adults. You don't need to worry about your cat. While snakes do eat live prey, they will not attempt to constrict an animal that is far too big to swallow. If the cat finds the snake (entirely possible) is far more likely that the cat may kill the snake. The snake may attempt to bite the cat in defense, but this will cause no more than a cut..._IF_ the snaks's small teeth can penetrate the cat's fur. Look up pictures of Ball Pythons on the web (there are LOTS of them) to be sure that's what you have first. If so, they are terrestrial and seldom climb, so it is most likely on the floor somewhere. Snakes can get into remarkably small places, so don't assume "it couldn't fit in there." They like dark, semi-cool areas, and will come out at night. Send me an email if you want and I'll give you some more info on where and how to look. Good luck!
