When I arrived to feed late this morning a little raccoon was there looking for food. I know they are around and have seen evidence but it has been awhile since I've had a face to face. This little creature was sort of afraid but very determined to eat. Ollie Spirit, Doodle and Jag were all out to have their food and I kept the little raccoon at bay while they ate.
Eventually Piccolo made an appearance and I wanted to make sure he got some food but I knew if I left, the raccoon would move in.
In the end I let the raccoon have a little food and then he moved on. I left extra food out hoping that Piccolo would come out after I left.
Tonight when I returned to feed dinner, I left Doodle sitting with some of the heated snuggle safe discs. I thought we were finished with those until next winter. Oh well, in a day or two the temps will warm up and I hope stay.
