Via Andrew Sullivan:

Yes, they’re adorable until the little buggers slash your screens, break into the house, and steal your chocolate.

4 barks and woofs on “Raccoondemonium

  1. Please assure me this picture has been photoshopped. I look on it as a nightmare and you know why. We suffered the invasion of beasties that were twice as big as those in the photo and many times smarter. They knew our house, knew which window was vulnerable to invasion and when they/he/she made it into the kitchen knew which cupboard held the peanut butter and which jar held the cookies. Brrrr . . . .

  2. The hysteria about rabid raccoons is vastly overblown. You are no more likely to contract rabies from a coon than you are a bat, dog, or any other vector.

  3. We had many, many Raccoons in both of the last places we lived. They loved mini-marshmallows, but since we had invaded their home, we fed all the critters kibble (exept the deer who preferred apples). Raccoons, Skunks, and Possums all ate peacefully together–sometimes with the cats. Like neighbors of any species, animals respond as they are treated.
