First I want to thank everyone for such wonderful comments on my blog .
You have all been so kind it really helps right now when I am a headcase with this raccoon aka "F.B." still laughing his A** off at us .. and now it looks like Emma is going in to an early heat .. if any of you have ever had a cat do that before her spay operation .. well .. you know it is really nerve wracking/wrecking ? .. she isn't 6 months until the 21st of July and her operation is the 24th of July .. so a very hard month to put in until she is a contented ? young miss ?
We went ahead and FIRED idiot so called raccoon catcher .. It was really the last straw when he plunked that cage in our yard with the tin of cat food ... and literally took off laughing I'm sure. I have my suspicions that "F.B." Raccoon and this guy are in it together to make money off poor saps like us.
So .. an official e-mail was sent firing idiot raccoon catcher guy .. come collect your assorted CRAP and hit the road Jack !
Then .. hubby went asking advice from good neighbors who have experience under their belts .. sage, elderly, but very spry guy, has hubby all fixed up with a true one way exit into live trap cage and a premium can of salmon, as fish bait literally ?
Hopefully tonight the whole process will fall into place and hubby will take F.B. Raccoon for a long drive into the country ..
My heart is in permanent THUMP mode, hoping that hubby won't fall off the roof while going through this procedure .. I'm the type of gal who will think of every terrible thing that could possibly happen, playing over in my mind constantly.
Sage neighbor said he is usually up near the appointed time we all hope this will take place .. clockworks in motion, keep all of your collective fingers crossed that we make it out with all body parts in tact .. I say 'we" while "me' as in "I" will be in bed worrying enough for the whole neighborhood. FB Raccoon has been in every one's garbage and business since he took up residence in our attic .. so yes ! the whole neighborhood has a vested interest in the success of this mission.
On the flip side ... we will have to get a contractor in to do repairs to what this nasty bandit eyed FB Raccoon has done to our assorted bits and pieces .. the big bucks will still be rolling out one way or another ... BIG sigh ... I keep rubbing the lottery tickets but I must be rubbing them the wrong way ????
In any case ... this is the update to F.B. Raccoon and the havoc he has reined down upon innocent bystanders just trying to garden and fish ? hubby that is .. me .. I'm GardenJoy4 "what it is worth" .. who would like to be more joyful if possible after this whole mess is cleaned up and sealed for winter laughter ?
