Back Door Visitor

Look who came to visit us......I have to say I was a bit surprised because I live in town. We do have lots of squirrels, birds and cats that visit us but this was the first time we have entertained a raccoon....and entertain we did. He had a lot of fun with the barbeque brickettes and the things I had on my potting stand and I was very happy to watch him....this is the only good photo I could get though. This critter surely seemed huge to me, bigger than our little dog 'Gator Bait Joe..but then almost anything is bigger than Joe. 'Gator Bait Joe is another whole story and I will share it with you soon.
Until then, my wish for you is that all your back door visitors are ones that you are happy to see.

Francie, Lucky, lucky you. I LOVE visiting raccoons. They like peanut butter and honey sandwiches wrapped in tin foil -- they like to unwrap the tin. Raccoons like shiny things. He's so cute. I live in town too -- but the squirrels and possum and raccoons don't know that -- my little white dog wants very very much to catch a possum. I want for her to NOT! LOL Thanks for the picture.

Oh I wish we had racoons over here! He is gorgeous - think he'd frighten the cats though!
