Mish Mash

Last night I looked out and we had a BUNCH of raccoons out there. Hard for me to be sure who they all were. It looked like some of Stubby's kids, some of the Giggles Gang and the first mom from the summer - a weird combo! But they all seemed to get along. Mostly.

The Giggles Gang

They were nice enough to pose for a family portrait for me. Mom is on the far right.

Sweetie's Family minus Snapper

It's time to face a sad reality. I haven't seen Snapper for months. Odds are he did not run off to join the circus, or strike out on his own to form a rock band with the other rebels. But maybe it's just like Jessica Simpsons dog and a coyote "kidnapped" him. Should I put out some flyers?

Regardless, Sweetie and the remaining two kits came by last night for some party nosh and crackers.

Giggles Mom and the Kids Pt. II

When we have a bunch of coons standing on their hind leds peering in the back door odds are it's Stubby and crew. It happened tonight and it was not! Giggle's Mom and the gang were doing old "Hey Lady...You forgot to put our food out! Please feed me before I faint here on the spot" routine. So I did.

And it's been awhile since I've posted a video, so this occassion seemed right for one. It's a little dark at the beginning, but still so cute!

I'm pretty sure this is Bob Jr.

Crackers From Costco

The first time I bought 7 large boxes of cracker from Costco - with four regular boxes in side (7x4=28) back in April, I thought for sure it was enough to last all summer. I'm not almost out of the second round of that many crackers. These kids are hungry for crackers.

Stubby's family has been to visit a couple nights in a row. These pics are from last night. The before I decided to just enjoy them without flashing them.

Giggles Mom and the Kids

For those of you new to the blog - Giggles was a very special raccoon. He and I had a very close bond (he is pictured in the header). It's been about two years since I've seen him or his brother Shadow, I assume they have moved on to another territory as the males seem to do. This year his mom is still coming around, and has new kits, and these are from last nights visit:

Back for a 2am Snack much cuter can you get?!

He tried to come in farther, but I had to put down the camera to keep him from making himself at home!

Self Serve Night with my Favorite Family

My little family came to visit me again tonight, so I laid out a self-serve buffet. True to form, they were very respectful and sweet - taking only one cracker at a time, not trying to grab the whole package like some others in the past (yes Snapper, I'm talkin' to you!) ;o) The thing I really love about them is how at home they feel here. They eat, they play, they nap. Basically whatever they want to do and my presence doesn't dissuade them at all. To them, I'm almost one of the group, and that is fine with me.

Another great visit from Stubby and her family. LOVE THEM. They rock (and they help with the gardening).
