Look what Chloe Dog treed today!

This guy was snuggled up in the window well under the back steps, which was full of leaves. He didn't want to leave, but DH ran him off with the leaf blower.
Then Chloe got him cornered on the deck, and he finally ran up a nearby tree.

I know coons are awful creatures but I do like them they are quite clever.

The are very clever, and have amazing manual dexterity. In some areas, they have learned to open bungee straps.

The thing we were worried about today, was that the raccoon didn't run off the way he should have, and Kim was worried that something was wrong with him. Raccoons are a big carrier of rabies around here, and he said he might have to shoot it.
Fortunately, it took off. Chloe dog has been vaccinated, but my 10 yr. old grandson has not.

We have one that raids the catfood feeder at night and actually washes his hands in their water dish before eating. And yes we clean the dishes each morning.

I will carry a scar on my right index finger to my grave from a pet racoon that went wild. Be very careful around them
