Still here!!

It's been awhile since I've checked in, but we are still here! I found out one of our neighbors had some of my friends "relocated", which made me very sad, but we still have several visitors that come around. Sweetie, and a few of the little ones that grew up in our yard. Haven't seen Stubby in a few months. That isn't a first - just hope she is ok. In the meanwhile, crackers are still a favorite snack of the backyard bandits!

Merry Christmas!

Sweetie wishes you all a very joyous holiday season!

Sweetie's turn!

Sweetie and her three kits (from the posts earlier this year, in June) have been coming to visit all summer and fall, but we don't see them as often. They remembered us though. The little one would still take a cracker from me and they felt pretty comfortable in our yard. We like it that way! And they seemed to really enjoy their snacks tonight



This is Sweetie....

This is one of the babes....

Stubby Update

I know I haven't been updating much, so just in case anyone is still interested, Stubby is still coming and has maintained her title as our resident raccoon. While others come as well, Stubby is the staple. We think a few of her grown kits are among the frequent visitors. Sometimes they are all in the yard at the same time and seem to get along and play together.

Tonight Stubby was sitting in the grass when I got home, and when she saw me in the kitchen, she headed straight for the door. She sends everyone her best wishes!

Fun with the Family

Wait...wait... there are FOUR!!

I was very happy to see the two kits this week, but I was thrilled last night when Sweetie came back with not just the two, but with four! The more the merrier. I sat with them and played and got to know them all. Several were already brave enough to take a cracker from me. Adorable overload! I love how they play, and they always seem to love the outdoor rug.

One was taunting me about destroying my plant, but he was bluffing.

They are HERE, they are HERE!!

I was beginning to worry that we wouldn't have any babies this year. Haven't seen Sweetie nearly as much as we did last year, but tonight... VIOLA!! Sweetie and two kits appear at the magic pots. Taking their ques from mom, they weren't afraid of us and enjoyed some laughs and good snacks. Are there more kits out there we haven't seen yet?? Guess we have to wait and see. But aren't these guys cute??!?!

Baby watch

Well, I just checked the archives, and this time last year we already had seen a group of kits. So far we haven't seen any. Stubby and two other coons, which we think are her kids, still come every night for snacks. One night they all came at the same time and got along, so we think they are related.

It's the time of year, and I hope Stubby isn't too old to have kits! Keep you eyes on the blog and hopefully there will be baby pictures soon!!

Hi Lenny! By the way, I gave Stubs an English muffin with some grape jelly (at your suggestion) and she loved it! :)

An Overdue Update

It's been a long time since I've posted anything, but in the winter it's all pretty status quo. Stubby comes almost every night. Like tonight, waiting by the door and knowing we will see her and fill her bowl. She is just the sweetest old coon. I hope she has a bunch of kits this year because we always have such a good time with her babies!!

She looks so mean when she crunches, but she is really the farthest thing from it!

Then she tells a joke and has a good laugh....

Smiling Guest

It's a little in the winter, but one of our old "kids" comes to visit pretty often. Always has a smile to share to say thanks.

Welcome 2011!

New Years Day and a visit from Stubby starts it out on the right foot.

Cashews in the Rain!

It's been a long time since I've posted anything - but here is a video update! One of our grown up babies braved the RAIN, RAIN and more RAIN today to come get a snack... I just got a Flip video, so this is the first try. I think I need to add additional lighting, but it's not too bad! (Click through to YouTube to view in full scale)

Friend or Foe?

This is my baby JoJo, sitting opposite "Orange Kitty". It may look cordial, but the stare down was intense. After a few moments the Exorcist noises began and she started bouncing off the glass. For her, the answer is definitely foe.

Trixie is back!

Trixie comes almost every night, but has been coming really really late (or really really early depending on your point of view) and we haven't seen her much lately. But as I was doing dishes tonight I saw her having a snack and thought I would add some treats. As usual she took as much as she could get in her mouth and hands!
