Cats aren’t the only beggars at my house. I’ve been trying to discourage this masked bandit with it’s voracious appetite for cat food, by feeding the felines during the day and mostly inside. So now the raccoon is foregoing it’s nocturnal habits to come begging during the day. ”Aren’t I cute? And pathetic? Come on! It works for the cats.”
It’s appropriate that the natural markings of a raccoon provide a black-masked face because it’s as much city bandit as forest creature.
