ENTER THE RACCOON

September 27, 2010

A Raccoon has taken up residence in our garage.

At least, we think so–the raccoon isn’t talking.

Suffice it to say that both Marilyn and myself have caught sight of him (and we are assuming that HE is a HIM

because, again–he is not talking).  I saw him sitting on top of the highest cupboard, the day after he wrecked

the garage.  He was trapped in there all day and so he went a little crazy. It looked every bit like a hotel room

after being trashed by a rock star.     Think  “Alvin and the Chipmunks meets Aerosmith”

The little critter was resting up after all of that activity. I saw him and he saw me. He sauntered lazily over the side

of the cupboard and disappeared into the piles and boxes of garage stuff.  This is not to say that he has any great skill

at hiding or skulking away…hell. Have you SEEN our garage??  You could hide the Hindenburg in there!  One little raccoon

would not (one would think) pose a huge problem for the remaining occupants except–

Raccoons are mean…

What if he (I named him Mr. Bitey, just in case he does) he were to come after

one of the cats?  That would be scary. I heard that they can get mad if they feel threatened or cornered, or if something blocks the

path to the food.  HELLO??  MR. BITEY??  YOU ARE IN THE CORNER!  HOW CAN WE   NOT     CAUSE YOU TO FEEL TRAPPED??

Raccoons can be so dumb sometimes…

Sadly…

Our problem may have been solved as I saw, on the way to the office, the remains

of a raccoon who was a victim of  the road.  It made me sad.  I really didn’t mind sharing just a bit of cat food and a warm place to sleep.

Happy Trails to you, Mr. Bitey~
