I'm sorry to treat you all to this tidbit of info, but maybe you'll have some suggestions -
Several mornings now we've been treated to a new "present" on our deck (and no, it's not a poop deck). Happy? Uh...no.
This sort of thing isn't in my area of expertise so of course, I turned to the net. This is surely the weirdest thing I've ever had to "Google".....and yes, the info was there....
Not only the info, but pictures, so there's be no mistake!
(I have to say thanks to all the people who bothered to take pictures of this. It's an ugly job, but you're doing mankind a good service. It's not the kind of thing you can ask people to come over and take a look at...)
Sure they're cute - but cute somewhere else.
It's odd because I wrote about this sort of thing last year and I see it was on July 15. I wonder if they use our place for their summer vacation? Are we the Riviera of the raccoon world? Do we advertise great bathrooms?
I don't know why they come to us. There's not a speck of food or garbage on our deck, only a few flowers that they've dug up a few times.
So....tonight we leave the outside light on. I've sprayed all around with a strong smelling cleaner.....I hope they get the message. The next step is waiting up all night and screaming at them (apparently they don't like that - neither do the neighbours).
Wish me luck.
In case you need to identify the same problem- photos. Don't look unless you have to......again, UGH! Photos are really gross.
