The Raccoon Residence

I’ve been running early, to beat the heat.

So this morning, right when the light came up…like nature flips a switch…I came upon two raccoons scurrying across the road.  One a little bigger than the other, deciding, they must be siblings.

You could practically hear the dialogue…the raccoonese, as they sprinted home.

“Hurry up…Mom’s gonna kill us if we’re late again. quiet…pick up your paws for God’s sake.  Have I taught you nothing?”

Imagine being a teenager scrambling back in your bedroom window after a night of secret reveling, and in their case, cherry picking, if you will.

I stood watching as they slowly climbed up a huge tree, the bigger, letting the smaller, go first.

As they made their way to the very top I thought, why those sneaky, little fuckers…look at them…they live in the penthouse.    🙂

  1. New York raccoons aren’t like normal raccoons. They probably have caviar and a cappuccino machine up there. 🙂

    Susannah, you brought back memories of late night sneaky moves of my own. I used to crawl down the hallway into my parent’s room, change the time on their bedside clock, and crawl back out. Then I’d return in a normal manner, let them know I was home, wait for them to fall back asleep, and reset their clock. Of course I fell asleep one time, didn’t reset the time, and they woke up late for work. Another good plan gone awry.

  4. That dialog is dead on. when I took an early class at the gym I would see them running across the road, looking back as if the cops were chasing them … lol.
    Don’t think I’m not jealous of them living in my favorite city in my favorite park!

  5. At least, raccoons are clean. We had one wash his hands in my cats water bowl then proceed to eat his food. LOL
