Note: after raccoons terrorize the shed like drunken pirates, they will need to rest. Especially if they have gorged themselves on cat food and cattle feed. If an overhead door is left up, they will think it is a nice balcony upon which to stumble onto to sleep off their indulgences. Upon awakening, they will realize that the stolen food they gorged upon is no longer settling so well … and OMG, they can’t make it to the bathroom on time.
The raccoons were upset one evening because my son and nephew were in the shed during their (the coons) normal cavorting hours. Although, now that I think about it, the coons and young men have something in common. The coons decided to growl at the young men. Unwisely, I might add. There was quite a bit of commotion and excitement and let’s just say that the coons did not win that particular battle. However, the war rages on. They (the coons) have called up the reserves. I may have to call in my reserve(s). My mother is the trapper in our family. But, I digress.
