First Norma Jean had surgery to remove a tumor from the side of her face. Then Sydney had her vet visit. I was surprised when Dr B reported that she was a good girl. She had surgery on her eyelid. Finally, yesterday was Mackey's turn to visit the vet.
Mackey did not want to get out of the car and certainly did not want to go with the strange lady. We waited in the car wondering how she was acting.
He said the bump on her side is a fatty tumor but he doesn't like the one on her neck and it needs to be removed. Also he managed to get a look at her teeth and she has cracked a molar. It's a bad crack and the tooth needs to come out. He'll do both surgeries at the same time. We're planning on doing it in September.

After observing our little raccoon family, Mom, Dad and three kits, we wondered who would show up last night so we made sure there were some seeds in the feeder as evening approached. It didn't take long before I spotted a shape on the deck.

Sunday night a little after dark I was walking by the window and something caught my attention. I peeked thru the blinds and saw a raccoon sitting in the feeder stuffing herself with sunflower seeds. I turned on the porch light and she ran into the hedge.
About ten minutes later I looked and she was there again. Rob stepped onto the porch and again she ran for the hedge. Still later I looked thru the blinds again and she sat in the feeder and stared at me. I could read her look. She was saying, do we have to keep doing this? I'm tired and I just want to eat my dinner and go home. I turned off the light and left her in peace to finish the seeds.
On Monday night there was some seed in the feeder and I wondered if the raccoon would come by again. I left the porch light on and the blinds open and had my camera handy. I got more than I bargained for.
Last night I checked the window again and this time there was a very large raccoon there, I'm guessing it was Daddy. He didn't want any pictures and ran instantly but I noticed that one baby was with him.
