Trapped raccoon

raccoon

We have this janky cat in our neighborhood. He’s a wild cat. Any cat that can survive New Hampshire winters on its own has my respect, but this one is getting closer and closer to the house, and it’s upsetting my cats to the point that Muffet has started “marking” his territory. This cannot be tolerated…

So I bought a trap and baited it with kitty tuna from Trader Joe’s. Did I catch janky cat?

Nope. Raccoon. Fat one, too! It’s the first raccoon we’ve seen on our property (though they’ve been in the garbage before).

    The box in which this very fancy trap was packaged clearly showed it is also good for catching armadillos. I want to catch an armadillo! James forgot to mention it also caught two of our three cats. Now, if janky cat would just come try the tuna…

      yeah, but, no - I think the first thing you have to do to catch the armadillo is to actually live where the armadillos do…..
      so let me know if one turns up at your place!!!!!!!
