One less mystery

Well, it's definitely a raccoon. I saw it this AM. When Beans got me up [4 AM], I turned on the back patio light before letting her out and there was a raccoon--digging in one of the pots we just re-potted. When I opened the door, Beans ran out and it ran off. It wasn't very big, about twice Beans size, but she's a small cat.

Yeah, Marge, we've got five loquat trees loaded with fruit. Wonder why it doesn't go after that, or the tomatoes. Or the nice can of tuna in the trap. I don't know what might be in that potting mix. It's the soilless kind--MiracleGro, I think--that we usually use [we usually use one from Canada, but it's not always available].
