By the way, a few months ago I saw a raccoon roaming around in Manhattan. I thought it was the coolest thing ever (first time I saw a raccoon in person). He was a suspicious fellow. I think he was involved in some espionage.

I think that first picture is actually a baby bigfoot.

Even if it's tame, I wouldn't let your cat near it if it has that aggressive/fearful reaction. The cat could still get into a fight and get hurt if it instigates or escalates a confrontation.
Hopefully, my cat will have enough sense to stear clear.

I think my biggest fear is that my neighbor will hand-feed it, and the raccoon might accidentally bite her while it's taking the food. That would mean a death-sentence for the raccoon since it would have to be caught and tested for rabies, and it might mean rabies shots for my neighbor. Bad news either way.

I think that raccoon is in need of an exorcism! :biggrin:

I could be mistaken, but I believe that raccoon could be one of Dr Foofer's henchmen in the illegal possum smuggling ring.

That makes perfect sense because raccoons are notoriously good and breaking and entering.
He could be placing possums in locked garages.

I guess my age is showing, I was thinking of the squirrel.
If it makes you feel any better I was thinking the same thing and I'm twenty-six.

Heh heh, yeah, I was going to comment that it's a good thing Bullwinkle didn't show up with him. :rofl:
