Last night out on our deck, a rather large and tall raccoon paid us a visit to see if there was any cat food left. Nope. But he was looking in the window for quite a while. Then he got up on the deck railing and flopped on his belly with his legs hanging over just like our cats do. Guess they must observe what how our cats relax or something?! I have seen a lot of raccoons, but I have never ever seen one do something like this, it was seriously funny.
He just sat there for quite a while as we watched him and dashed for our cameras. Usually raccoons look at you a bit and then ramble off to their next stop, but not this guy, he was relaxed and going nowhere fast. He finally had enough of our observations (or maybe he noticed Zelda the Wonder Dog getting more and more frantic at the window) and got up slowly, and climbed down ninja-like, head-first over the deck railing. Just another visit from the wildlife we share this forest with.
