I put some sunflower seeds out on the deck for the little raccoon that dragged itself up from the woods about four days ago to find food. It’s been living under the deck since then…but we usually have one of them take up residence there until it’s babies are born and ready to go out with mama. Tonight this one entertained the dog and the cat for at least an hour…they’re so brave when there’s a thick pane of glass between them and “The Claws”.

The little path it’s following is the one I’ve kept cleared so that I can get to the bird feeding spot…The path is gone this morning.
