This was the state of affairs two years ago when we were targeted by a mommy raccoon who had decided our house was just right to have her kids born and brought up ..... lord .... if anyone knows how crazy I am they will know how CRAZY this made me !
It was a successful mission with no harm done but family was evicted and sent on their merry way ....
Now jump forward two years ... last night number one son happens to hear a bit of noise around 11 PM .. goes out to see one VERY BOLD raccoon (giving number one son the finger as it nestled inside a hole he managed to tear into the siding ..
Number one son decides to pitch a couple of rocks at it to discourage the BEAST with the fickle finger of fate that he flashed ..
Then number one son spots a man walking a dog coming down our street and decides his scenario of pitching rocks, at granted, his own home .. might not be viewed as socially correct ?
So .. this morning .. in the midst of cleaning house .. I guess the boys decided at some point and time they were going to have to tell me the sordid details .. for which the box of Kleenex was issued while the water works from one tired woman who crumbles at the thought of wild kingdom moving in one by one.
Next ... the panic of trying to remember what company we used two years ago .. thankfully some brain cells were functioning .. Green Shield and owner Curtis came to the rescue so quickly we are blown away ..
They have to construct a special one way door to stop the nonsense .. hopefully early enough to avoid the catastrophe last time when mom and one kit got out but one kit was stuck inside .. you talk about crying .. I don't know who was worse .. me or the baby raccoon .. anyways .. it was all resolved so quickly .. thankfully.
BUT here we are again .... two years later ... what is it about our home ?? .. could it be the garden of Eden drawing the bigger wildlife in ... ahhhhhaaagggrrrrs !! ... hand me a drink !! or chocolate !!
or a chocolate DRINK ?
The saga continues ....................
