Racoons eating my cat food

We get these nightly visitors.....  Lately we get the whole "Raccoon Family".....  Bye Bye cat food!

Sorry it's a bad photo..... It's my iphone in the dark......

Look at those eyes......So cute yet so "Don't mess with me" all at the same time.....

There is momma Raccoon......and Hunks weedeater....

Another awful -quality- photo but I was zooming in with the iphone in the dark....

He got a little freaked out with all my photo taking and ran up in a tree.... Hunk shined the flashlight on him so I could get a photo...

 He came back and ate for awhile.....when the bowl was empty he decided to go meet up with the rest of his "gang"


  1. My dad has a family of Racoons that visit his back porch regularly as well. He's even caught them "washing" their food in the water bowl. They've gotten quite comfortable now and will come in the early evening as well. They can be better than TV.

  2. Oh my, they are cute, but they can be so naughty! Couldn't help but notice your outdoor living space-love it!

  3. My goodness, they come so close - they don't seem to be scared of you at all!

  4. Can you blame them with your awesome patio? It's FAB! I can't promise that I won't show up on your back door tonight!

  5. Now that's a good husband who wil hold a flashlight for you so you can get a photo! Those eyes are perfect for halloween pictures - spooky. What brand outdoor furniture do you have? I've been looking for FAT cushioned chairs since forever!

  6. p.s. where is your music? I got mine fixed again - email me.

  7. Pretty bold little creatures, huh?!

    Fyi -- I've got a giveaway going on over on my blog. You might want to come check it out if you like Barnes & Noble :)

  8. Have missed your updates but am sure you are crazy busy! We have tons of raccoon families around here, too. They are bold creatures! I have a 'city' cat that I inherited from my daughter that used to be strictly an indoor cat. But out here in the country he has acclimated quite well to the outside life....until...the sun goes down. He then reverts back to being a whinny little ole' city cat. So at night he lives in the enclosed front porch but that doesn't stop the raccoon's from bugging the heck out of him. Ha! Such is country life.

    Hope you and your family are well!


  9. Spend More Time With Your Children
    It does not matter if you work full time or part time. Maybe you stay at home with your children but you are working from home. Even if you stay home with your children, you are busy trying to get everything done. No matter who you are, you probably think that you are not spending enough time with your children. Quality time, that is. There are many ways to spend more time with your children.
    Your children do not need to play every sport or do every extracurricular activity out there. You could spend all of your time running your children from one practice to another. Pick just one or two activities that your children love and stick with them.
    Plan family dinners where everyone sits at the table, eats, and talks about their day.
    Make dinners special so everyone likes to spend time together while eating.
    Let your children help when you are working on things.
    They can help fix dinner, clean, and fix things. Children learn by watching and doing. Chores can turn into time together so that they are much more enjoyable.
    Do things that your children want to do.
    It is hard when the house is a mess but get on the floor and play with your children. Play games that they enjoy. Have a movie night and watch their favorite movie.
    Find things that you enjoy doing together.
    Arts and crafts can be a big hit. NightArt is helping bring parents and children together. You can design a drawing and watch it light up together.
    No one feels like they spend enough time with their children. However, you need to make the most of time spent together, instead of worrying if you are spending enough time together. Find things that you enjoy doing together, like NightArt. Check it out at It will bring out the artist in everyone, bringing families together.
