I am beginning this at 1:38 am Central Time. The policeman has just left. We had a terrible intruder...a raccoon got into the house through the fireplace. Raf was asleep in the bed and I in my recliner. All of a sudden he heard banging. The raccoon had gotten into my studio and wreaked havoc. Photos and the rest of the story to follow tomorrow! Oh, I mean, TODAY!
Now it is just past 9 am, and here are the photos I look last night after the policeman captured the raccoon in a laundry hamper and took him outside to let him go. The policeman was very young but very capable. He said he had never captured a raccoon in a house, but once he had captured a possum.
We are exhausted!
This is this morning...after a very non-restful night...looking out into the back yard where autumn has finally come and tonight we are to get sleet and snow. Poke the Cat is wanting in.
