  •  A friend wrote a hilarious kitchen (none)
    invaded via cat door story about raccoons. Don't have it around, but boy, was it great. I think it wasn't you, as he would've told the whole story again. (Trust me on this.)

    No cat door in this house, for that reason. Getting the mom and child possums off the garage shelf and out of the garage changed the "open door" policy for the garage, too.

    •  They are hilarious critters (none)
      ... they waddle in a line and Ma shows the kids how to eat your cat's food -- grabbing it and rinsing it first in the kitty water dish, making a real mess!  (They like to rinse their food).  

      When they used to successfully raid my fishpond (I've now got it wrapped in fine poultry mesh), I'd see 'em standing up dropping shabunkins into their mouths like a bloody frat boy...

      I hope you can find that story -- I love hilarious animal stories, and rackitycoons are some of the funnier customers.  (But I hateses them, I does, I hateses them!)

      •  Oh I think it involved (none)
        something like this super-brainiac, not skinny, VERY self-assured lawyer comingn down to defend the house with his pistol -- from the intruders he heard -- to find himself being stared down by a racoon in his kitchen.

        :-) The man types 120 wpm, so any twist of humor he wanted to add to a story were right there.

        We on the bulletin board were treated to updates as he and wife went through various methods to let cats do their in-out-in-out thing, whilst keeping the raccoons out, also.   :-)
