Tonight Andrew was teaching himself a new Coldplay song (he really is that talented!) and I was unpacking holiday decorations and the backyard lights came on...they NEVER come on. And we were a little surprised-but nothing was there. Until......I saw someones beady little eyes, peaking out from around the deck bench.
And I happened to have my camera out as I had been taping Andrew moments before, so luckily I was able to catch this trespasser.
Also luckily, our cat-who-thinks-he's-a-dog was at the ready and rushed low-belly style right up to confront the intruder.
The intruder did not even blink at Whiskers, just kept on foraging.
Andrew took a moment to wonder why we never domesticated raccoons. Good question. They are so cute to look at!
We named her Cassandra.
