Our univited non-guest FAMILY creatures

Sorry .. I don't have pictures at the moment .. if I had been outside watching the crew there might have been pictures that would have made it to TV.
Previously I had said husband watch Fat B*****D leave the roof a night ago .. we thought phew .. this might be over now ?

However I had one of those niggling thoughts that there were two shacking up together to see if they want to get married or not .. those wild and crazy kids can be choosy right ?
Well .. after inquires about "is there any possibility our little girl hasn't used birth control .. the horror of it all !! she might end up an unwed mother with a dead beat dad that leaves the first time she asks him to watch the kids ??" ...
Raccoon man says "Nahhhhhhhhhh" it is way too early for little ones to be surprising the couple wink wink ..(or aka "you poor people who are raccoon magnets)
Zoom into yesterday when the RACKET of NOISE above the bay window of the living room and me running around in circles yipping ......... Emergency call to raccoon man company (after previous call that FB left and they stoped cringing and sweating when receiving a call from this house) .. two trucks come out and the circus begins.
To cut a long story short (because it does continue today ..)
While opening more siding to see what is going on .. raccoon man almost fell off the ladder when he surprised MOMMY and BABIES ..

MOMMY went for raccoon man hissing and growling PROTECTING HER YOUNG and HER HOUSE ? ... thus that funny trick out of National Lampoon's Christmas when Clark goes down the ladder like greased lightening ??
Have you caught my drift as to how fast he got away from ANGRY MOM protecting her kits while enjoying the benefits of a 5 star hotel ? .. OK .. we can negotiate the rating later ;-)
.................. and me with no camera ..
The saga continues ................................................

Har har har...oh my lord Joy! This was hilarious! Momma raccoon already had babies? Talk about ambitious! And fertile? Ha ha ha... And where the heck is the father? Did her run off?

I was in hysterics imagining the raccoon man being surprised (and hissed at) by a very angry momma raccoon trying to protect her young. You could make your own movie, similar to the national lampoon films, only yours could be based on critters (namely raccoons, of course) and the raccoon man! The film could also include shots of you yipping in the background…lol... Just teasing!

Anyhow, what happens next? How do you get angry mom and her little ones out of there? And once they’re caught, where are they taken?

Oh my gosh, Joy, I can't believe the raccoon saga has come back for a sequel! I would be screaming, too. Ironically, last night I was reading the chapter for my MG class today on managing wildlife. According to our state law, raccoons that are trapped must be given to a licensed gamekeeper or released....within 100 yards of the same property! Now what good does that do?!

I hope you find someone who can convince Mama Raccoon to move far, far away.

Good Lord! You do have the worst time with these critters. And I know it's not even faintly amusing, but it sure does make for an entertaining read. ;)

Rebecca @ In The Garden said...

Oh Joy, the madness just won't stop, will it? Really too bad about the lack of camera, please do keep us posted.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

It's too bad you didn't have your camera! The raccoons have already been having babies out here, but I thought that was because the rest of Spring was so early. So, now I wonder what the next step is? Trying to get the mom and the babies?

Beyond The Garden said...

It never fails. We carry that camera everywhere we go except for the one moment that would win us $10,000 on America's funniest home videos or the Outdoor channel.
thanks for the story.

Martha I was going to send you an e-mail but I am so darn tired of the antics going on here I figure you will read the post anyways ?
We have a BIG hole that the guys made to let mom take her kits out .. but they have not budged and we are still waiting for the company to show up again 2 PM now.
They say the have a scent "au du coyote" that will stress them enough to leave but who knows .. this has gone beyond ridiculous .. I NEED a load of chocolate right now and I'm drinking stupid white tea ... go figure ?? I went to Home Sense and bought cute little obelisks for plant pots .. BIG sigh !

Rose this is a saga out of Ripley's Believe it or NOT ?? we are so tired .. and I mean physically exhausted .. so much going on plus this raccoon rampage .. if it doesn't settle done soon, you are going to hear me screaming all the way over there girl !

Nancy girl .. I'm sure I will laugh about it next year ? but for now all I want to do is lay on the floor and cry until I fall asleep .. then sleep for a week ? ;-)

Rebecca .. those are the moments that fate has it in for you .. no record of what the heck just happened and it keeps rerunning through your brain .. "can this really be happening ??"

Catherine it surely did SHOCK the raccoon guys .. they swore it was too early to have kits yet .. but lets say my inner female instinct thought other wise .. but how can you tell men that ? Yes .. the next mission to instigate circumstances that will make mom gather her young and get the heck out of Dodge City !!!

Hey there Beyond ! I wish I was beyond right now myself .. and you are too right .. it never fails .. well we shall see what adventures happen today if they ever haul A** and get here before dark ... BIG sigh !!

Will you leave that poor little raccoon family be woman! You have a nice abode and they enjoy your warm attic. hee hee, I can feel your pain! Really, I am not laughing at this post but the noise you are hearing creeping through the computer, is the sounds of me cringing with you and not laughter. I promise I really do. hee hee. I would get the liquor bottle, a lawn chair, sit back and watch the critter ritter do his job. They are the professionals right? lol…

I don’t know if you get this program up there or not but we have a show that we have fallen for. Not sure the name of it but the program follows a guy around that lives in Louisiana and works a Pest Control service. A family owned business and the people are a hoot. I think the name of the company is Vex Con or something such as this. They guy dresses up like a Vampire admirer and does his job. He looks a bit rough but he is such a good guy and does right by the critters that I am in love with him! You must see if you can find this on TV as it is full of laughter for us. You are the type person we get a kick out of when he is on a call. You would be perfect for getting him to rid your house of coons. You are so cracking me up with your coon tales…. I do hope you rid your home of the pesky critters but not after a few more postings first. Hee he….

I know it's not funny, Joy. Especially because it's happening to you and you're in the thick of it. But ... it really IS funny. The way you write about this saga has me right there (I coulda backed you up with Racoon Man about the kits. I had that one pegged several days ago.) watching RM's hasty retreat down the ladder. This would have made such a great U-Tube flick. Ah, well. Keep that camera handy for the next (de) installation. :))

GardenJoy4Me said...

Skeeter girl .. sounds like a plan to me other than it being freezing out there right now ? I know .. the fire water would warm me up ? LOL .. I know exactly who you are talking about .. Eddie the Exterminator I think is the show and I love it (aside from all the creepy crawly creatures ?) he is amazing .. so hard working and so good natured down to earth well expressed .. every time his mom calls him I cringe though eh ?LOL
I watched a marathon of the shows and I really enjoyed them .. if only I could get him up here ? Too cold for him probably .. the show is the best and you are right , he tries so hard to do the right thing for every one and creature. His brother needs a kick for that idiot ex-wife business though ? haha .. Yup .. dial up his number and tell him you have a friend in Canada that NEEDS HIM !! ;-)

Christine girl I am trying to keep the camera handy but I think the action is going to happen in the middle of the night and I'll be snoring away ? I swear .. this has to be the longest run of bad luck happenings we have ever had .. I'm just blogging about this bit .. you wouldn't believe the rest of it girl but some times you gotta' keep your other problems to yourself ? BIG sigh !

Skeeter said...

Mom is a hoot, Hey Billy...
And yes, brother does need a swift kick in the rump over that girl...

GardenJoy4Me said...

Skeeter I love the way she says that too "Hey BILLY ! I got 'a good one for you !!" .. for some reason I thought his name was Eddie ? my brain is mush ! Yup .. that brother and that ex of his .. BIG kick to the backside needed there for sure !
