Do you have anything good to eat?

  1. They are cute when they want to be, but can be very nasty buggers, great shots, did it fall in and get stuck?

    1. Thanks, Pat! Everyone does keep telling me they can be very nasty. I've had two close-up encounters and never experienced a bad moment. :) We are assuming this one fell into our window well and couldn't get out. So we (we being my husband) put a board in so the animal could escape if able. We didn't know if he/she was hurt. Next day, he/she was gone!

  2. Oh my, was that raccoon next to your house? I have experienced them both in New York and in the Bay Area. Hope this one is OK.

    1. In our window well, Catsynth. I assume he/she is okay; haven't seen any sign of him/her since.

    1. I was kind of hoping it was a girl, Yulian, and looking for a safe place to nest. But there was no cover, and it snowed a bunch the next day, so if that was what "she" was looking for, it wasn't good enough.

    1. My husband put the board shown into the window well so he/she could escape, if that was the reason he/she was in there. He/she used it the next day, in pre-dawn darkness, to escape.

    1. We don't know if he/she fell in or was there looking for shelter. Lots of big dogs (and a few little ones) in our neighborhood, so it's possible she got spooked. But she also could have fallen. He/she took the ramp my husband put in for her out. Stairway to freedom...

    1. Funny, Sue! The reason I linked the video is because that song would not get out of my head when I woke up the next morning and found our little friend "Go-o-o-o-o-o-one, oh, yeah, I better learn how to face it..."

  8. Raccoons are engaging animals. Their chief sin is foraging for food where we would rather they didn't. He/she/it was likely looking for grub and fell in your window box. Any animal will bite if cornered.

    1. Very True, Tulsa Gent! I'm glad it wasn't injured, but I sure do wish I'd been able to document photographically the growth of a bunch of young'uns!

    1. I do not think it was a happy camper when we first found it, Monica, but then it went to sleep and slept all friggin' day!!!!! (They are nocturnal.)

    1. I'm so glad another person agrees, Cat! I think it's adorable!

  11. Okay, that is the most adorable raccoon I have ever seen! I remember one getting stuck in our garage when I was kid. That thing was SO mean. So that's all I ever remember of them. Now, I completely understand why people plaster raccoons all over fabric.

    1. Gosh, Olivia, you've given me an idea! Everyone goes nuts over owls... I think I'd love to quilt a raccoon!!!

  12. What a cutie!!! Too bad that it wasn't a she looking for a den! That would've been very fun for you.

    1. Oh, yes, KB! I was so hoping I'd get to watch her little ones grow up! (Assuming, of course, she is a she...)

  13. My students and I know that they are going to take over the world, well them and crows. Checkout Raccoon Nation on PBS as well as A Murder of Crows. We did in my classroom.
