The Animals Have to Eat Too

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.

One day I'm going to invest in a night camera.

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.”

Long pause.

“But they have to eat too.”

I LOVE my animal-loving neighbors.
