The Raccoon Saga
A while back I saw what I thought to be was our Main Coon cat, Shoshin,on the back deck, but when a baby raccoon followed her, I knew immediately that it wasn't our cat. I watched the duo go from the deck and go around the pool enclosure. I put out some saltines for them and they were gone the next day. I don't know who ate them, but I have a few suspects.
END STORY... not.
Yesterday, I saw two baby raccoons run across the back deck and I was amazed. Then a third one came running and then a fourth! I was speechless at this point and then a firth one came running up the deck and running up our huge oak tree. I watched them for hours until my husband came home and put a bowl of cat food up in the crook of the tree where they were hiding. For the rest of the evening, we watched those beautiful babies happily chowing down while mama coon watched from a higher post in our tree.
My husband put out some sushi in the back yard and I put out some crackers on the back deck.
I'll let you know when I know something.
