Night Visitors

Mum was just about to go to bed last night after the Purrayer Vigil. She looks out the windows to check things out around the house each night. Well last night she founded some furry interesting visitors in the back yard. Three, yes three visitors.
You can see one raccoon right in the middle of the picture. The suet feeder that was hanging over the area where he is at is now gone. So mum figures they gotted in the tree and knocked it down to eat the stuff. The other two visitors are harder to see. They are back by they fence and you can see their eyes glowing, to the left and just above the main raccoon.
Mum cropped the picture so you can see the glowing eyes, upper left hand corner. And thoses eyes belonged to another raccoon and a oppossum. You can click on the pictures to biggify.

Plus with our aborted attempt at moving to BetaBlogger, I sign in my blog as usual and can leave posts as Derby for the original Blogger blogs. But if I go to a BetaBlog, then I am there as 'sassycat'. So if you see 'sassycat', its me!

Oh, my! Great photos! Maybe my coons went up your way because they haven't been on my deck in a while.

Love those photos. I'm frustrated with our move to Beta. Mostly we can just sign in as other but it seems some folks have been having problems and we were unable to do it at another cats blog.

You'd think they'd want to fix the original FIRST don't ya think?

Ooh, scary eyes in the night. Those racoons will steal anybody's food. We have them around here, too, along with a bunch of skunks.

We don't get racoons in Wimbledon only foxes - they look cool. Faz

We haven't seen our racoons for a while, but I know that isn't them. That would be a bit far to travel on those little feet.

You aren't only a Sassycat, you are my Smiley Boy.

Wow, those eyes are eery. We don't have any of those in the big city and I'm glad, I think I'd be very scared of them.

We get lots of racoons on our deck and sometimes they make our bird feeders fall down. Well, I guess they have to eat too!

We've had it with blogger these days and aren't switching to beta unless they force us to!
