No photos, unfortunately. This morning I got up and opened the blinds in our bedroom and I was startled to see a raccoon looking in at me, probably just as startled as I was to see him. We stared at each other for a bit and then I turned to pick up one of the cats to see what she thought and when I stood up, the raccoon was gone.
Yesterday, the large groundhog that lives just on the other side of our fence poked his head out and was sniffling around the bushes nearest the fence. He, too, kept an eye on me as I worked in the kitchen where I could look out the window at him. Tired of moving shadows, he ambled off back to his den.
It’s supposed to be cold here at the end of the week, in the single digits (F) and teens, so I hope both of them have tidy warm dens to retreat to when that happens.
