    Raccoon Deterrent

    Yes, yes, I know. It's a really weird request.

    But I really need some help with this. The local raccoons have been driving me MAD lately. Normally I wouldn't mind having them around since all they really do is eat a bit of my cats' dry food, but one of my cats just delivered a litter of 3 kittens and I don't want them harmed. Just tonight the mother had to fend off two raccoons that were--I'm not kidding--about a foot away from where she and her kittens were resting. I know for a fact that raccoons are omnivorous. I don't want to have any of the kittens, erm, EATEN. Do any of you have issues with raccoons, and if so, do you have any sort of way of keeping them out? Right now my strategy is to just charge at them with a seven-iron golf club.

    Also, don't tell me to just get a fence. I know that. I already have a seven-foot-tall one.

    Since you have a fence you don't need to worry about the dog you should have running away.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    I'm supposing that you mean I should get a dog.

    Best raccoon deterrent there is.

    We use Eviction Fluid. It's urine from a male raccoon in breeding mode. Works great.

    I use coyote urine plus the flayed skin of a former raccoon to send a message.
