Argh

The raccoons are winning. I think they ate the neighbor’s cat last night. Either that, or interspecies romance blossoms best under loud circumstances. Or the noises were part of the dream I was having before the creatures invaded the back yard.

Lack of continuous sleep = inability to draw a single conclusion. Which means I have lots of them to draw. Maybe later, I can even color them in.

Anyway, it turns out that the petunias were not as effective as previously hoped. Dog barking does eventually convince the raccoon to leave, but only after many bushes have rustled ominously, lights have come on in numerous windows, and the dogs get together some harmony.

Nothing quite like staring out over the dark back yard in the middle of the night, looking for monsters.

Yup--raccoons really suck in just about every way. They are huge, dangerous, noisy, and make many large noxious poops. They are a health risk not only for rabies, but also for raccoon roundworm (Google that only if your stomach is feeling strong and you're not feeling particularly hypochondriacal). The babies are cute when they purr and chirrup under the floorboards, but that will still keep you awake, and of course quickly result in more marauding pests.

Must get raccoon birth control. The good news is that the raccoon seems to be single and not to be living under the deck or anything.
