The raccoon's visit started as usual with a check on the contents of the fountain but, on his dismount, it appears that a paw was caught by the irrigation tubing and he took offense. A battle ensued (interrupted by a very brief fixation on a seashell). View in full screen for a clearer picture of the battle.
Last night, after I'd drafted this post, my husband and I heard a funny noise. I assumed that cat was up to no good in the kitchen but, having also heard the noise, she was staring out the window into the back garden. A moment later, 2 large raccoons strolled by the living room windows headed out of sight as she hissed at them from the safety of the house. Had the first raccoon called on his brother to help in the next game of tug of war? Who knows. I suspect they'll be back soon in any case.
This is my Wednesday Vignette. For more images that captured the attention of bloggers this week, visit Anna at Flutter & Hum.
