    I do not!

    Perhaps you can't tell the difference between a dog and a raccoon??

    Darn raccoons

    Hey there, you could always fax them to me,
    I currently love raccoons, hence the name of my nursery.
    While i was back east, the sister with whom I stayed told me about the 2 baby raccoon that were in the neighborhood,
    I had planned a special evening to stay and watch for them. Usually I went to a nehew's home to get internet access.I have 4 new converts to carni plants. the 7 yr ol boys were so awestruck by the videos on the internet of VFT. Dad came and told them it was time for thier bath.so i told them, I'd show them one more and of course as per child rules they begged frorone more video when the last one was finished I told then that i had shown them an extra one already,I kept my promise to show them for one more video andthenI said I expected tehm to keep their promise to thei dad to take a bath.
    I have never sesn such compliant children in my life.they almost ran over each other trying to be the first in the tub

    The problem is I like coons too, they come up to the front porch and eat the cat food. Momma and two babies, so cute. Just stay away from the plants! I'm sure the plants will survive, all are very hardy.

    Jack,
    My dogs taught me this trick.
    maybe if you take the cat food in at night. the raccoons will stop coming around. The cats can live 12 hrs without something to eat.
    All 3 of mine are doing well and we also have less feral/stray cats . Those noisy bluejays used to bother us also. But taking the cat food up and in the house has cut down on the number and frequency of those varmints.
    Somebody is here all day and so when the dogs aren't in the yard we put the cat food down for one hour, then take it back up again.
    The only real way to protect your plants from raccoons is strong wire cages around your plants,you cna make a can be collapsible type.
    so it stores easily when not in use (during th day)

    Never underestimate the power of a determined racoon. In Florida I've seen them chew their way through a thick plastic trashcan, and pull bits of trash through one by one.
