Cat? Possum? Some giant bird?
I'm standing very still, looking around, when I spy in the corner, up on a top shelf (now devoid of boxes)....
Oh so cute with his little mask. Staring back at me.
I slowly backed out of the shed, zipped to the house for my camera, and was able to get one good pic. I took several but with the lighting and the fact that I was NOT going any farther into the shed than just inside the door, I only got one decent photo.
Mr. (or Ms for that matter) Raccoon was pretty curious about me too!
Cute as he was, we decided it best to call animal control -- we didn't want him/her in the shed, playing havoc with our boxes and boards, or having babies, or whatnot. So animal control comes with the most gigantic cage I've ever seen, and a can of cat food. He left the cage and told us to wait a couple of days and then check to see if Mr. Raccoon was inside. He gave us various instructions, and a copy of their humane treatment of wild animals and how they took them to wooded areas out of town and let them go. That made me feel better.
See the mess that raccoon made!
So we waited, and no raccoon. Waited a few days more, and no raccoon. Gave up after a few more days and called animal control to pick up their cage.
Mr. Raccoon still roams around these here parts.... but not in our shed!!
