Sunday evening the family went for a walk at dusk; as we passed a neighbor's house, we spotted two raccoons. That could explain why the cat sometimes runs into the house all fluffed and big eyed. We told the raccoons about our other neighbor's sweet and juicy (not to mention early-rising) chickens, but I don't know if they listened.
This morning Spider-squirrel ran straight up the wall of the mini-mall and into a wall vent. Clever place to hide food. Maybe it is a mutant. (Yeah, I know, if it's a spider-squirrel it is the result of a scientific experiment gone awry, not mutation.)
