RE: Happy Holidays to All

With our main entry a full story off the ground, its not at all uncommon
(especially when food is scarce and I have food on the porch for the
squirrels) to be startled awake with what sounds like heavy footfalls.  Yup!
Our neighborhood raccoons know where to look for a healthy snack.  How they
can make so much noise without weighing 300lbs is beyond me.  (It has scared
me senseless thinking some large person was ambling up to our windows!)
It's always a relief to see it is a critter.

The other night I heard something scratching at my window and naturally 
assumed it was an outside cat.  Boy, was I wrong.  A fat raccoon was
climbing up my 
window!  Cracked me up.
