We Have Uninvited Houseguests: Furry Critters
No bats in our belfry, nope! We have been invaded by a family of raccoons.
This photograph taken the other day by a wildlife removal service technician solved the mystery of the recent scratching, chattering and patter of tiny feet heard throughout our house, emanating from the ceiling.
They have been in residence for a couple of months, based on the size of one of the raccoon babies pictured, (right) with Mama acting threatening, (left).
I could not bear to have these critters executed . . . so work begins to extricate them and have them relocated to a wildlife preserve.
All I can say is thank goodness for the tax rebate we just received. We get to bump up our Nation's economy while we save the critters whose habitats we are destroying.
And we were thinking of a flat screen TV! Oh well.
