Ringtailed Guests

Last night my dog came in after barking with a Jimmy-is-stuck-in-the-well-and-you-better-come-see look in her eyes. I ignored her. She went back out an barked some more. When she came back in her eyes said "if you don't follow me out to check this out, I'm gonna gnaw off your toes while you sleep!" So, I went (I like my toes). She led me to the, (ahem,) unfinished, treehouse platform where I found 3 raccoons. I wonder how you poison raccoons?

Hey, just think, you could have three sweet little pets that come up to your porch and eat your dog food at night... Maybe they'll even eat out of your hand... And bring their cute little families to visit... At least that was my grandma's method.

I used to have a motion-sensing flood light in the backyard of my old house. I got really freaked out in the middle of the night when I saw the light go on through my bedroom window for the first time. The relief that it was only a family of racoons was temporary. Racoons can be a pain. They have no fear. Don't feed them!

You don't poison racoons silly-you shoot them, skin them and wear it like a hat!

Yeah...we had some raccoons...did you see our new deck? That is a result of having to tear out our old deck to get rid of the raccoons. I will tell you the story sometime if you want.
