Right now I’m feeling pretty ingenious about the Raccoon situation. It seems that a Hot Dog Roasting stick will scare off an entire family of Raccoons….at least that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! After we found the present they left in my birdbath we did find a pile on one of our windows just next to the back porch. Other than that, we’ve seen very little evidence in the last few days.
For the first time in 10 years, our neighbors had their garbage cans broken into the other night. So we’re thinking they’ve moved west. We hope and wonder if Nicki, our new Rat Terrier has been helping with keeping them away. Believe it or not she’s been known to kill one…although she was a few years younger than now.
I’ll report any new sightings!
