Yeah, right - they definitely must be taking a bath! How can they get the
water so dirty? Even just one raccoon makes a mess of the water.
They are cute though. I was tossing little bits of a banana to one once and
after the banana was gone he slowly walked up to me then bent over and
I think what you mention here is called Pet Screen. It is an
extremely strong poly vinyl screen that is virtually tear proof.
I screened in our porch with this and it's been up for years with
15 cats at home and raccoons outside. I got it online, but later
found out Lowes has it in stock.

Raccoons are clever little beasties and they can figure out just

with possums - it's amazing. The first time I saw it, I was really terrified

sometimes do get domesticated, especially when they are young. And there's a
ferret involved for company. Nice man. Doesn't mind the messy

Yes, you are right. I think the raccoon has moved on and are probably
transient. I don't see him running around the area anymore. There seems to be

Speaking of all this about the raccoon, anyways, wish I could find homes for
the 7 cats i feed every day. They are all so beautiful and quite healthy

very friendly and the others are coming around, too. Anyone
I actually had a baby opossum that somehow got into my house. My cats just sat
there and looked at it like it was an alien. The opossum paid no attention to
the cats. My dog keeps them off the porch where some of the ferals feed. She

If they are spayed and neutered and if you have a farm where barn cats
are needed and cared for.not just dumped to fend for
themselves...The receivers would have to understand relocation and
the special needs of the relocated cats but they are available.

Possums don't bother me but the coons do. I have trapped and

I always pipe up when somebody says that cats sit in cages at shelter/in jail,
