I was knitting away on a sock for Summer of Socks, and glanced out the window. There seemed to be something furry in the tree, and peering more closely revealed that it was a raccoon, settled in for the late afternoon. But then
it seemed like there were more ears and heads than you might expect one raccoon to have
and indeed, it was two: a young mother and kit.
No, we don’t leave pet food outside, and don’t want to actively encourage them to stay. But they are darned cute.
