Ohhhh! Look! We’ve got another cat eating on the porch! I wonder where he came fro—-
Whooooaaaaahhhhh! That is not a cat!
Oh, what an awesome site…!!!:DGood day!!!:)
I was following this up on FB, I'd love to see a racoon hre, always loved these littleguys. Are they dangerous? Iread your friend Jack saying not to make eye contact.Kisses and love from us, and good morning!
YAY! I love the masked bandits. We used to have a family of them that would hang out with us when the hubby and I lived in our old apartment. We'd be sitting out on the deck and they would come right up to us and eat from the cat bowl.
aww I love raccoons! we used to have a family of them here with a train of babies.. they loved it when we would come out and give them cheezies!
Adorable!We used to have one that my husband could hand feed. Then he (the coon) told his friends (apparently) and before we knew what'd happened, we had up to 10 coons coming and going from our yardThey dug up my flowers and tore down my bird feeders. We started trapping and relocating them when they started boldly coming out in the middle of the day, even while us and/or our children were outside.It doesn't take much for them to lose their fear and they're not as friendly as they are cute.Please be careful
I can't remember the last time I saw a wild raccoon. He's so cute!
We have raccoons that come about every night. I put food out for a stray kitty and they finish it off. Last night my cat, KittyFace, tried to defend her territory and was all riled up. She doesn't seem to understand that she is a small cat and that raccoon could kick her butt. BTW, after those critters get all the food they can find, the 'possums come out to pick up any trace crumbs.
Aww he's so cute!
I had two stalking my chickens the other evening…set the live trap, but they were too smart…took the bait and avoided the trap…
LOL! awww. Silly critter!
Awww…he is just a baby. Look at that short little tail! I bet Mama Raccoon pushed him out into the world on his own when the new babies arrived…
Awesome. I just love that commercial where the lady is calling her kitty in for the night, and the raccoon goes walking in…and she's calling it a good kitty. Mary
You've given me a good chuckle this morning. But you didn't quite beat the cuteness of turning around while watching a midnight showing of an Audry Hepburn movie to find a family of Raccoons sitting at the window watching with you…
Aww it is cute though isn't it?
Oh dear. I love to look at them in your photos but not up close and personal. When I used to take teenagers to camp, too long ago to think about, I took my turn with the flashlight and whip, (just kidding, no that's what they were doing) looking for escapee children out in the bushes doing what comes naturally. On occasion, I would stumble upon, raccoons, skunks, beaver and even a mountain lion….oh, ick, run.
Bring it in the house and let the kids play with it! Atleast it ain't a snake! I swear- down here when ever I sopt snakes I scream a more high pitch squell than a girl! HATE SNAKES!!!!!!
This sounds exactly like me when I first discovered that I had racoons eating on my porch. Of course, I had the pleasure of telling my wife about it, and getting told that I mmust be mistaken. After she saw the photos I took, she agreed that it was no cat.
LOL! What a cute kitty!
How cute!! They're only dangerous if cornered and frightened. Pesky sometimes, though!
thankfully that was not a ginormous rat! i think we have racoons on our tiled roof at night. they'd *better* be racoons ;]
We used to get raccoons eating on our porch all the time. We'd leave dog food out for them, and eventually they brought their babies. So cute!
I love it! They can be aggressive and mean, just like opossums, but darn, anything with fur is usually so cute!
I just blogged about a creature visiting my place as well. I have a dragon on my screen door. Or so he looks like a dragon, he's actually a weird looking moth. ahhh Spring. The time for beautiful fuzzys and creepy crawlies to come out and play.
How cute! Glad you take care of all the animals in your kingdom! I think wildlife is fascinating!
Oh my, we have those kinds of cats too. And opossum-cats, and stranger-cats, scrub jay-cats, magpie-cats and starling-cats. . . Seems my front porch is a gathering place for all hungry vermin.
I had a good giggle at your blog post today. What a pretty "kitty", much prettier though from far away I'm sure. Is there a way to safely trap and release these little buggers back to where they came from? Loved the photos.
Reminds me of the ad on TV with the woman who needs glasses calling here kitty kitty into the night as she invites a raccoon that comes, thinking its her kitty. They are cute, but they do smell, as wild animals tend to do, and they are so wickedly smart! I had a full self-feeding cat crunch dish (the ones where a bag of it fits, and it drops down into the dish as its eaten) disappear, it was taken off about 100 yards away and totally demolished. Wish I'd had a video camera rolling on that one!
