Ahhhhhhh Raccoon in the House!

What would you do if you had just woke from a night's sleep, rubbed yours eyes and spotted an animal tail around a corner inside your home? 
Well for me, the first thing that entered into my mind was: Dang kids are playing a trick on me like the time they painted my toe nails purple while I was asleep in the lazy-boy. I didn't figure it out until the next morning when I had taken a shower and was putting on my socks. Imagine the shock of seeing 10 purple toes nails looking back at you and then thinking what the heck was I doing last night.  But this time was different, it's a creature. I thought, what the heck is that and how did it get in the house? Dang, looks like a Raccoon and we don't have a pet Raccoon. I bet the wife has let it in thinking it was Creamy the cat, which is possible because her night vision is not what it used to be. Now what to do, throw shoes at it, call animal control, get the guns? Just call me Davy Crockett because I feel there's a new coonskin cap in the future and then to my surprise....... 
As I turned the corner to get a better look this is what was looking back at me. Kibble our cat. I suppose the reason I was thinking Raccoon is because before I went to bed, I spotted this outside.
It's a Raccoon stealing cat food outside. Just call me crazy.

Ha! Glad you didn't react on first sight. That would not have been a pretty sight. Thanks for sharing, Larry.
