Dogs seem to be under represented on all the forums here. So, here is my senior citizen Bailey, at his day time post. He's keeping track of raccoons and bunnies on the front yard. Not that he'll do anything about them, he just likes to know.

OMG I'm loving all these pics!

Bees...ARGH, I'm like hella allergic (even the picture almost sends me running and screaming like a little girl! LOL). I swear if there's a bee within a 50 mile radius of me the sucker will find me and go in for the kill... (and whoever started the "if you just stand still a bee won't sting you!" fallacy well--I'm here to state they are just WRONG!!)

Here's a pic of my squishy weirdo Isis cat:

(Strange "Family Guy/James Woods" reference there, for those who care--I couldn't resist, heh. Was the first thing I thought of when I saw this adorable pic.)

I would like to post this picture in memory of two of the sweetest and coolest cats I've ever owned.
Blackie, aka Pusser, passed away in 1993;
Smokey left this world in October,2008. The vet said that his age had caught up with him. My sweet, sweet Smokey was 18 years old. I had to make the decision to let go.

Yeah, but I'm really bad about keeping it out of our vehicle on freezing winter days or boiling summer days and bringing it inside. I just know that the next time I go to use my current kit it will crumble to dust, or something. LOL

I so need to get a new prescript...

Molly (ten year old photo to the left) just turned ten.

A few years ago, she brought a friend into the house one evening, and I'm sorry, but when she brings a Coyote into my living room, I have to draw the line.

She's now an indoor kitty from sunset to sunrise.

Confused by your use of the word "friend". Was the coyote trying to eat her? Poor kitty!

I understand. It is in his nature and she wouldn't understand that.

Sad fact but the telephone poles in my neighborhood are covered with pictures of lost small animals. Animal control doesn't have the budget any more and here is an animal control officer that lives on the block. Vector control won't do much about the plague carriers running on the telephone wires either. But you can call them about a dead crow because it might be West Nile. I'm just surprised I haven't heard about a move to ban pot bellied pets in California. And I can conform that deer like rosebush.

I believe that was the Coyote's idea, yes.

Before we got Molly, we had Chantal, and she was so slender, and quick, and graceful, and smart, and Molly just isn't.

Fortunately for her, the Coyote wasn't all that hungry, seeing that a suburban neighborhood is a very good environment for Coyotes -- between garbage cans, pet food, and pets.

Animal Control says "well, the Coyote is under pressure from encroaching man" and I'm sorry, but this Coyote was clearly very well fed, and healthy, and not feeling any pressure at all. They won't do anything about Coyotes until they start stalking people.

I saw this on the internet and it reminded me of a neighbor's tree near my fenceline that was loaded with termites. It dropped a large branch into my yard and afterward a raccoon took up residence in what was left of it. Do raccoons eat termite larvae? No more termites in what was left of the tree.

According to this Wiki webpage Here they do eat insects, So If they can get at them, I'd say sure.

Raccoons are supposed to eat snails, but you'd never know it from the tons of snails I have in my backyard!
