REminds me of the time back in the '90s, I was part of a group that met quarterly at The Spaceport Inn in Lompoc, just up the road from Vandenberg AFB. Often I would wake early, and find deer grazing on the grass outside my room.

Last night in the pub as we awaited the arrival of the New Year, and drank to the memory of the old one I was attacked by the infinite mass of a tiny puppy...
This little thing had already chewed its owner's new jacket, tiddled on couple of laps, and undertaken various other "puppy duties" on other folks when it (she) arrived on my lap (presumably out of desperation on behalf of everyone else around...). My thoughts were along the lines, well at least I've not got my best clothes on... I gave her a gentle fussell, and gradually she fell asleep, only stirring when I tried to stand up at midnight - have you ever tried to stand up and not wake the sleeping puppy on your lap? Take it from me, it can't be done.
Eventually the hour came for us all to walk the couple of miles home. Tony (her "boss" picked her up and put her lead on - ping, she was wide awake, and trotted the whole way back to their boat - only to fall asleep as soon as she stepped on board.... Its a dog's life?!?!!!

You bring a tear to my eyes. For some reason
your story took me back all those years ago
when my children were small and it was just the
same with them as it was last night with your
little puppy. I can see their shining faces in
my minds eye, so sweet, so trusting, so beautiful....

Sue you put me to shame! Much as I love raccoons, I draw the line at letting them dine on my kitchen counter. I may be the CRL (Crazy Raccoon Lady), but I hereby dub you the Crazier Raccoon Lady.

Seems pretty tame and not frightened, but I would agree with Ang, that they really are outside animals.

A raccoon superhero... what's not to love?

Given how often raccoons are showing up in commercials, on YouTube, in TV shows, in cartoons and now in the movies these days, I'd say we're all "in with the in crowd". In fact, given the heritage of our Critter Cafe, we just might all be Trend Setters. My next career as a raccoon wrangler is looking up!

If you study hard and get to be a professional "Raccoon whisperer" then you really got it made :-)

I am simply stunned. That is a ridiculous number of raccoons. The gas station attendants must feed them regularly. I enjoy my little backyard visitors, but I am happy to report that my raccoons have never numbered in the double digits (and I hope they never do!!!!!)
