Window Views: the Nighttime Version!

For our Window Views on Thursday post this week, we feature our nighttime visitor: a raccoon! He or she started coming by on Saturday evening, and the next night we got a video of him. We had put out food on the deck for a feral tuxedo cat that Daddy had seen running around in the yard, and the raccoon noticed the food so he stopped by to eat. The cat came two nights ago, but is feral so ran when it noticed all the activity inside. The raccoon, on the other paw, has no problem with us watching! Last night, Little Bit jumped at the glass trying to get the raccoon to play, and scared it by doing that, but then the raccoon walked right up to the glass and lowered its head, crouching down in a similar way to a play bow! So we think it's probably lonely and wants some friends, so it comes by to eat and enjoy our company. We sure enjoy it! Here's our video below! :) Featuring: Rori, Little Bit, Tabby, and the raccoon.

Raccoons are so cute! We have one that eats on our porch sometimes too!

I can't figure out how I would react if I meet a raccoon!

Raccoons are very cute but some of them are very bold and vicious too. You have to be careful of them! We had one on our fence last fall, early in the morning, while we were all out in the enclosed back space. We don't know what was more entertaining: the raccoon or our human having fits and worried it would somehow get in and cause utter chaos! She was the one causing all the chaos! MOL!
