Caterer on rattlesnake is a period 33 oscillator that is composed of a caterer and rattlesnake. Although it is composed of two oscillators of smaller periods (3 and 11 respectively), it is considered nontrivial because it contains a single cell that is alive in generation 32 and dead in the other 32 phases of the oscillator. In terms of its 46 cells, it is the smallest known nontrivial period 33 oscillator.
