Game Set Match

After an overwhelming win last week, the raccoon stunned the sports world by unexpectedly conceding defeat and getting himself trapped in the cage last night.



The thing is, now that we have him, I feel really sorry about the whole deal. I mean, he just wanted a place in out of the rain. He looks so sad in that little cage. I'd really like to just let him go, but I know he'll keep trying to get into the house if we do.

My hats off to you Mr. Raccoon. You were a worthy opponent.

Oh, and upon closer inspection of the cage once it was off the roof? Not a marshmallow. A little white cup about the size of the marshmallow. I don't know what it held since the raccoon already ate it, but I'm going to assume that it wasn't mini-mallows. So just to clear things up since I've been going on and on about these stupid marshmallows for about two weeks now- the raccoon bait was NOT a marshmallow.

Although not to say he wouldn't eat one given the chance...Heaven knows I do.

OMG! Finally . . . how long did this last? I've been following the Racoon Saga for a while now. His sad little eyes do make you want to pity him, don't they?? :)

I SOOO happy you finally got the bugger! Wow was he a hard one to catch. Congratulations.

He does look sad, but they can also bite so don't try to pet him (lol, I'm sure you wouldn't even think that)...oh, but then you could sue because the raccoon didn't have a tag on it that said "danger, may bite your hand off" (sorry, still on the crest mouthwash tangent).

Oh, let him go! You know, his great-grandfather probably lived where your house is sitting now...
Or maybe not. Heck, we DESERVE to triumph. We are, after all, the ones with all the intellect, right?
I was disappointed it wasn't a mallow lure! Made me feel one with the animal kingdom. I would totally crawl in a cage for a marshmallow, especially if it was covered in chocolate. Or chili cheese fries. I would SO crawl in a cage for chili cheese fries. (Dang. Now you know how to catch me!)

Oh, and see that little dot in Korea on your ClustrMap? That's totally me!

You do feel kind of sorry for them once you see them in "person," don' you? It's okay, he'll be fine. He just has to find someone elses house to invade, right? ; )
