Peeping raccoon?

Oh my gosh. This raccoon just tried to get in my house! I was lounging on the couch when I noticed Pistol standing on the arm of the chair looking up at the window. He sorta looked like he'd come to a dead stop in the middle of bounding up to the windowsill. When I looked up I saw why. This little guy was standing right up against the window staring in at us. This picture was taken later, after he'd backed off a bit and the cat got brave enough to jump up on the windowsill and growl. I know I live close enough to the river to have lots of wildlife around, but somehow you just don't expect to have a raccoon watching you eat dinner and watch tv.

I hear raccoons make great pets! Maybe if you leave lots of food out you can entice him to come inside, and then he and Pistol could become GREAT friends!

Racoons do NOT make good pets- ask me how I know! They also carry rabies.....This guy looks pretty healthy but I wouldn't be encouraging him. They are awfully smart and you don't want him figuring out how to get in!
