Anyone following my Critters saga might like to read comments left in the post below this one.
on critter visits!
Thought I had things under control, after feeding my cats and latching the screen.
Well, one last look-late-late into the night (2:30 AM)- I was to see that I again had a critter visiting! This time it was the Raccoon! He was calmly helping himself to the leftover Meow Mix-just as the 'possum had done the previous night!
The cats, again, were undisturbed by the strange animal sharing their food.
Since he was there, I hoped I could get a picture of him but when I got my camera and got close to the door he quickly left the scene!
Since the door was secured he had found a hole in the screen to enter and exit the porch!
I had known of this hole in the screen -(which was made by my big cat, General, awhile back when he had become impatient to be out after being in for the night!) but I had thought the wild animals would not be aware of it and hoped the latched door would keep them out! I was wrong!
When the raccoon would see me watching he would leave -but would return 3 times to finish up his meal!
He obviously was no threat to my cats so there was nothing I could do, immediately, except watch!
But -I tell you- it gives you an eerie feeling to realize there are strange things coming into your space in the wee hours! What next- a bear??
(really-we DO have bears in our area- or at least a few miles from us in the Ocala National Forest)
And - what am I to do about all this??
I love and respect wildlife but I don't like these close encounters with these animals!
