Isn't he cute?
Well not at 3:30am he's not!! I was woken up yesterday morning by what I am fairly sure were raccoons (or Raykens as Ricky from the Trailer Park Boys calls them) in the throes of death…or maybe fighting, or maybe mating. Either way, raccoons make the most awful sounds. If you haven't heard them, then trust me on this one. I had to close the window (and I live on the 10th floor!!) and could hear other people in the building doing the same!
Nothing says good morning like high pitched pterodactyl, I mean raccoon shrieking.
