From my childhood I remember a weird short story (?) written from the point of view of a small animal. The only thing I can really remember of the plot is that it contained a very disturbing (to me) description of what it was like to be eaten by another animal. Perhaps another(?) snail, mollusk or insect. This would have been written in the '70s or earlier.
There is a Patricia Highsmith story from 1967 called "The Quest for Blank Claveringi" about a scientist eaten by giant snails. I read it online just before posting this, and I don't think it is the story I remember. None of it seemed familiar (except for the eating part).
Can anyone recall a similar story written from an animal's viewpoint?
