House Coon and Cat Houses Update

Brother Coon and I couldn’t come to an agreement about the availability of indoors as acceptable behavior for a coon with a long life expectancy.  Whatever I did to keep him out, half an hour later he’d be poking around trying to find a way in, eventually leading to success.

Last night I’d had a bellyfull of it.  I brought the live trap in and put it down next to the sack of cat food, then went to bed.  Around 3:00 am I heard the trap slam shut and a lot of ruckus.  Transported trap, coon and angry all outdoors to await arraignment, trial, conviction and final disposition.

Cathouse Success

For once I predicted something and it came to pass.  That ice chest I salvaged out of the grader ditch actually has proved itself the popular cat-hotel I hoped it would.

  1. The coon looks innocent to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Morning Jules -
    Sounds to me he deserves everything he gets. Plus he’s hiding behind that damn mask and he don’t look like no Lone Ranger to me.

    • Morning One Fly: He’s claiming he was part of an Occupy Living Room protest. Claims the live trap was illegal entrapment. Just saying. Hydrox is doing the Public Defender work on the case, Tabby acting as prosecutor. Waiting to hear the plea at the moment, but he ain’t pleading. He’s all sass. Claims the whole proceeding is inapplicable to his case. Gracias, Jules

  3. Just saying, You are the final Judge, Jury and Executioner. When it comes right down to it. You can’t reform a masked thief!! Good ole swift Western Justice and your problem is solved!! :-)

  4. I’m glad that I am not a coon / racoon (?)

    • Being a coon is no problem. The problem comes when coons make lousy choices, coming into homes, killing chickens, destroying what they don’t need to destroy. The great majority of coons are out there in the world just tending their own affairs. They do fine. Thanks for stopping in. Jules

  5. This coon sounds so clever!

    I loved the cat hotel! I’ve never seen anything like this before.

  6. Hu Jules,
    Maybe I need to revert to coon traps, too, as quite often we have racoons in our garage, stealing the cat and dog food. And cute as they may look, they still are a nuisance.
    Best regards,
    Pit
    P.S.: I wish the “like” button would work for me. Whenever I klick on it, I am asked to sign in with WordPress [I don't know why], and when do so, and click on “log in”, it simply reverts to the same form. I’ve never experienced this with other WordPress blogs. Maybe you can help.

    • Hi Pit. Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts. I swear I’ve never seen so many coons, never dreamed there were so many running around being coons. I can imagine what a problem they’d be if you have a way for the pets to go in and out of the garage.

      I don’t know enough about how things work to be able to help you with the LIKE button, but I appreciate the thought. Feel free to say ‘Hi’ if you feel the wish and I’ll be tickled. I doubt anyone’s going to put me in jail for not having enough LIKEs, or give me a ride on an Apoloosa mule if I get a bunch of them. But I do like a hello and anything else you feel moved to say. Gracias, Jules

  7. Too many years ago to be counted, I worked for a fur company in Maine. I still remember a couple of crazy coots who raised coons on dog food in their basement – to sell later for their fur. Seemed a strange way to earn a living, but then again, apparently not.

    • Morning Anonymous: I suppose it seems strange to me because I don’t care for close proximity to coons. But people with different tastes than mine raise hogs and cows to sell for food, I reckons. Thanks for coming by for a read. Gracias, Jules

  8. I find humorous irony in the fact my post today was about a rat trap and your post here.. a coon trap (~_~) great minds…
