My neighbor watched me fill the outdoor cat bowls with food this morning.
He said, “I hope the raccoons don’t come back this year.”
I was put on the defense at first, explaining again how I put away the food at night, and I only put out enough for the cats.
Last year we did have raccoons visiting regularly at night.
He said, “I know the raccoons are mostly here because they want my grapes and apples. But I don’t want to stop growing them.”
“But they have to eat too.”
I LOVE my animal-loving neighbors.
