Bandit

We had a little visitor the other day, in broad daylight. I heard one of our cats growling at the window, and went to investigate – fully expecting to see a neighbor cat out there – and discovered a raccoon milling about the garden. He (she?) was cautious but not afraid when I stepped outside; he kept about a ten foot distance from me, walking through the flower beds and along the top of the fence. Once he got to the back, he climbed down to dig in the creeping thyme and pull up a small item to nibble on. Not sure what he was eating, perhaps beetle larvae? I’ve been blaming squirrels for the holes in my garden, but now I think it was this little bandit.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
