Hello Raccoon Fanciers!

Let's use this new thread to continue our discussion of raccoons, Welsh rabbits and whatever else comes to mind. There is no such thing as "off topic" on this thread. Wherever the thread takes us, we will go.

Fondly,
Angela

P.S. Bill, will you please start us off with your bunny picture?

This picture reminded my of why Eric thinks that I'm now on the "NO FLY" list.

I recently went to a pet store for cat litter. While shopping I happened upon a bag of stuff labeled "Squirrel and Jay Mix" (and it wasn't bits of squirrel and jay!!!). So NATURALLY I bought that bag of yummy peanuts and other big seeds.

Eric says that anybody who uses a credit card to purchase an item called "Suirrel and Jay Mix" automatically has all of their personal information added to a "National Database of Crazy People" and from this they are put on the "NO FLY" list.

Judging from the popularity of the last Raccoon Update Thread, I would guess that I am not alone in this database....

So, another raccoon thread, and the only raccoon so far is Angela's avatar.

As someone requested, here is my backyard wildlife again. He should be big enough for the pot in a month or two.

I can see Bill's photo. If it helps here's his photo on another server...



I resized to save me some bandwidth - the image was quite large.

Thaks Ozzfan and Kai. I was going mildly crazy trying to figure out what I did wrong. Maybe it was the size.

This is a Mopoke (tawny frogmouth) that has taken a liking to my backyard.
Comes back year after year.
