    This skinny mom raccoon comes every evening for her plate of catfood. She is pretty skittish. The babies are too cute. I wish I could make one into a pet. Just a silly wish, I know.

    I love how the babies all split and mom works so hard to keep her cool and stay for the food. They are TOO cute.

    I would also want to be besties with one. Too bad raccoon carry so many bad diseases. :(
    I have the same dilemma with my/the horses' deer friends.

    I probably shouldnt' feed them at all. They can get so brave that they cause problems. Once I came around the corner into the kitchen and one had come into my house and was eating the cat's food. Now that's a surprise!

    Just wait til they move into your attic! My mom used to feed them as well until they chewed her soffits to get into the attic. Caused $1000 worth of damage.

    I know. They are total pests. But we have no attic, so we are safe there. But, I am going to wean mom off of her "snacks". She just looked so thin right now. The three babies are still nursing. Gotta kick them out, mom.

    We get them on our back deck every night; they look for leftover cat food and are SO brave. They ignore you when they see you at the window and come every night, like clockwork.

    One of my friends has the same issue. He uses a hav-a-heart catch em alive trap and moves them to more rural areas.

    Unfortunately, it's against the law in Tennessee to do such things and while I don't blame him for doing it I hope he doesn't get into trouble because of it.

    Frankly, it's either that or the three S's.....

    I use to have a three legged one years ago. Came every night. And my girls would lay by the window and it would come right up to the other side. And put it paw on the window as to say hello. I never had any issues with it :). Thanks for sharing
