Raccoon Diaries and Sanity Checker ?

End March 2010 and this was my happy dance finding these obelisks at Home Sense .. totally oblivious to the raccoon nursery going on in the attic for the second year in a row ........
Once I stopped screaming when poor husband had to tell me there was a second year of Raccoon Bed & Breakfast going on .. the raccoon man was called .. he was actually in total denial himself .. our case had become totally ABBY-NORMAL (for those who get that joke from Young Frankenstein)
This shouldn't be happening was said a few times .. "are you kidding me ????"
... and ergo a box full of babies are rounded up with no mommy in sight after all the ruckus getting to them happened ... so what do you do to get mom back to claim her babies ?
You build a "baby warming box" complete with heating pad ......

Yup ..... really cute ...... unless you have them in your home  ?
Then when mom does come back for nicely warmed babies ? .. she figures that husband's boat is a perfect place as a mid way station ?

This all happened in 2010 .. after a 2009 year of it as well ... we had one year as a break .. 2011 ... and now we are in the same "boat" with an unwanted "guest" making a ruckus in the attic .. I was up at 4 this morning, as were both of the boys and kitties .. all of us tracking the "guest" above the ceiling .. making it's presence known to us with various "can you hear me now" noises ......

I'm sorry to laugh but this is so funny - especially since it isn't me. Yes they are cute, especially the babies, but gee they are a nusience. I read all about them last year in your blog and just cannot believe they are back.
good luck.

Does this mean more obelisks for the garden??? Seriously this is unreal, let's hope your friendly racoon man can get rid of them again.

Well I would say they are sweet little things but I know they are not. LOL! Good grief you had a whole family! And they want to go boating too. That is just too much. :-)

I think they like you(-: They are cute...but I know it is a crazy house guest. I hope you can relocate them somewhere soon! Hopefully before Mommy has a new family! Ugh!

Nellie I don't blame anyone for having a laugh .. I probably would too .. but for the third time this is getting ridiculous .. I am holding this company responsible and they better do the job RIGHT this time !!

Linda that was a shot from 2010 .. I think I have more than enough obelisks now even though I have a "thing" for them .. I need to drop by Home Sense though .. I have that itch to scratch ? LOL
I'm always listening for noises out of the ceiling now .. they are still working on the problem!

That was in 2010 Lona girl .. but we have no idea if this is a "mom" with kits or not this year .. BUT ? this has to be done absolutely to the last degree to make sure we never have to go through this again .. 3rd time lucky ???

Cindee girl hello there! I hope you are feeling better ? I so hope so too .. that mom hasn't delivered kits and she finds some where else to have her family .. never again in our attic !!

Oh they are so cute! But yes, I can see that you wouldn't want them living in your attic! They seem to like your house a lot!

Rebecca girl I used to think they were too cute as well .. but now I have had my fill of the cute factor and I want them to pack up and leave , never to return again !!! Enough already !!!

Well now ain't that somethin'? I hope the raccoon man can get this taken care of and close up where ever they're coming in from.

Gracie girl .. one left early yesterday morning .. so we are hoping it was only ONE .. we are leaving the one-way trap doors up for the weekend and then the raccoon company will be back to do what ever clean up there is and seal every possible entrance way .. 3rd time lucky ? or unlucky for company because I will be their worst nightmare if this happens again !!

It's one of those "kind of funny" until it happens to someone you know events isn't it?

Ack you poor thing!

Hope that they got them all.
