Putting on her Game Face

We've had more raccoon infestations recently. A troop of four of them came in through our Maximum Leader's cat door the other night and made it all the way upstairs before she jumped out in front of them and growled at them. This woke me and we chased the little bandits away. We're back into lock down mode at night to keep them out.

Would you mess with this cat?

The last two nights, however, our Maximum Leader has gone outside to play and has stayed out past lockdown. We haven't been able to find her and she's had to spend those nights outside. She doesn't seem to mind it and always comes in right away in the morning. The nights have been so beautiful lately that I don't blame her.

As for the raccoons, I'm not sure what to do about them outside of just closing off all entrances to the house. It's a hassle and forces me to get the litter box out again, something I dislike immensely, but it seems to be the only method of keeping them out that works.

For more furry fun, visit this week's Friday Ark and Carnival of the Cats.

K T, you'd better be careful out there with the raccoons roaming around. I know you're brave enough to defend yourself, but those coons have claws and teeth, too!

Oh my, raccoons, please be careful KT. We've heard they can be real mean.
