The Zen of Unsure Things
I assume that's not Boz, so do you have raccoons in Pasadena or are these maybe feral children or small werewolves?
No dirt! That's a $50 fine straight away...
Those look familiar... Will never forget the time I heard some scratchings on the roof.. went outside and caught two raccoons doing the nasty!. yep, then they came down and tried to chase me and my son!
Oh dear, the raccoons got muddy. I guess they were looking for a bowl of water in which to wash their hands before dinner.
Raccoons and feral children, definitely. No werewolves that I'm aware of, but we have coyotes living in the neighborhood. That's a raccoon print, though. Looks like a little bear to me.
raccoons are cute... until they get into your garbage.
That's amazing! (Our raccoons are pretty elusive, no cool feetsie evidence.)
Oh, that's funny. I get raccoon tootsies on the hood of my car.
Sometimes we see them outside John's office window, but they are quick to run when the curtain moves. Elusive is the word.
Racoons...now that is amazing to me. In Pasadena???? How about that!
Don't you be feeding those coons or they'll be sitting at your dinner table ordering vin blanc before you know it.V
Well you must have (had) tasty trash!
Great shades of Brown Jenkins!
Looks like baby bear paws! We came home from our trip to find our barbecue strewn all over the back patio... Our local bear thought the grill was a tasty morsel!
Raccoons are mean sun-of-a-guns. They get really big--maybe three feet tall when they stand on their hind legs--and they will go after you if you feed them and they want more. I don't think the tales of them pulling hound dogs under water and drowning them are false.
Oops. son-of-a-guns. Or probably sons-of-a-gun. Or guns.
I promise we won't feed them! But our neighbor leaves kibble out for the skunks.
As I was driving home last night in Altadena, an animal was running straight toward me in the middle of the road. At first I thought it was a coyote, it was so big. But nope, it was a raccoon. Poor thing seemed disoriented by the headlights.
A few weeks ago at night, our cat, Macie, suddenly ran to the patio door, growling. Out of the darkness appeared a raccoon face. It nosed the door and put its paw on the glass. Macie was not amused (more growing, hissing, striking out at the glass). The raccoon wasn't fazed in the least. It shrugged, and finally wandered off with its partner. But Macie still goes on "raccoon alert" when darkness falls.
Seems a lot of us have raccoon tales to tell. I guess they get around. They're opportunists, I suppose. And who isn't?
A long time ago, I had two cats that were allowed to go outside, with supervision. One day I propped the kitchen door open and turned away momentarily. A raccoon came right into the kitchen and was eating the cat food. My cat came in right behind him. I think all three of us were freaked out!
I don't appreciate coons but I love this photo.Your neighbor leaves food for skunks???!! Meshugana.
They don't really want to deal with us, do they, Adele? The food overtook his better judgement.Dina, he's a well-meaning soul. And I guess the skunks get hungry.
I hope the skunks show their appreciation by not spraying. It is one of the world's worst smells. yuck
I know! So far, so good. For an urban neighborhood, our area harbors a lot of wildlife: raccoons, squirrels, skunks, coyotes, and opossums. Then of course the flocks of crows and parrots. They all do okay around here, and I welcome their presence.
