Before heading to bed, I always check to see if my feral kitties have come to eat. I leave food for them every night and if they're not here by around midnight, there are other animals that stop by and help themselves to the cat food. It's not my intention to feed raccoons but last night when I looked out the door, there were four baby raccoons competing for food. I know they're wild animals and I should not be feeding them....but tell me, how could anyone not think these babies are cute? They need to eat too but I'm going to find another place to leave food for the cats. I really don't want to encourage raccoons to come to my house. I do love watching them though.
