Such cute critters, they sometimes stop by and pay us a visit when we're sitting outside at night, walking around the pool then dipping their paws in for a quick wash and a face splash. Last night, about 3:00 A.M. there were some strange animal noises coming out of our backyard. It sounded like an animal was being attacked. Mr. Moey went downstairs to investigate and lo and behold, it was a raccoon pool party! The little bandits were whooping it up like nobody's business and they're becoming bold and territorial; they were skinny dipping and they tossed our resident rubber ducky out on his head. Mr. Moey turned on the lights, opened the back door and told them to keep the noise down or he was calling the cops. They gave him a very indignant look and were on their way, but bless their little raccoon hearts, they were thoughtful enough to leave me a nice assortment of calling cards on the pool stairs.
Grrr....it's stinking hot here today, I have to shock the pool tonight and won't be able to use it until Sunday. How about you, any cute critter stories you'd like to share?
