We're completely f**ked if those fuzzy little bastards learn how to use tools.

I'm sure glad that they included a picture of what a rabid raccoon might look like. Now I know what to look out for.

My old apartment had a sky light  and we'd find little scrambling raccoon prints trying to get in when it was cracked open.

I've been worried about coons sneaking through my window ever since I moved to Orlando, Subby.

Little bastards let themselves into my house almost every night someone forgets to lock the slider leading to the backyard. Luckily they are pretty well behaved except for eating all the cat food and leaving little muddy coon prints everywhere. One night I was passed out on the couch and woke up to find two juveniles eating pizza on the coffee table. Startled the shiat out of me I can tell you.

Interesting. Interesting situation.

I wish there was some way you could erect some kind of locking barrier between you and wild animals.

Alas, science has not yet provided us with an answer.

Good luck to you, sir.

When we find your remains hanging from the mouths of a coterie of raccoons, we will salute you and know that you tried everything to survive.

Everything, that is, except for LOCKING YOUR DAMN DOOR.

FTA: The animal was caught and tests showed it had rabies. It was later euthanised.

Unless there's some new type of rabies test I'm not aware of, I don't think it happened in that order.

Not to be a pedantic asshole, but the test for rabies is normally done using brain tissue and as such is done after death. There is no virtually no way the animal was tested then euthanized.

A fuzzy vicious rabid coon
Now it sucks Nana's face and wanders
By the bed of the back bedroom

If they were real assholes, they might have vivisectioned its head, then killed it later.

Well, then leave some alcohol out for the critters. Waking up to drunk raccoons is probably even more fun.

Never understood the doggy door. Farking get up and let it out, or get up and let it in. Nothing...kids, dogs, cats, racoons, NOTHING is allowed to just walk in and out of my house. One side of the door or the other.

One summer evening I was sitting at my kitchen table using a laptop and heard something crunching behind me. I turned around and there was a raccoon outside the open window (the sill is at ground level since the house is on a hill) sitting there eating june bugs off the window screen.

We stared at each other for a minute before he ran off. Not sure which of us was more freaked out.

Big Doggy Door strikes again in their cover ups


It was a cat door.  Hence why she thought it was her she was petting at first.  I had no clue people had doors for their cats.  And I am also curious as to what happened to the cat that should have came through the door.

Plot twist: the cat and raccoon are in cahoots. The worst kind of cahoots.

Raccoon cahoots.
