Nemesis of the Month: Racoons

As a stranger in a strange land, I am learning new things everyday about Canadians and their strange culture and habits. Worse yet is the new wildlife species I have to get to know!

Well you can imagine my surprise when I came face-to-face with this ferocious looking creature on our back porch!

At first I thought it was some kind of giant rat! I mean we had rats in South Africa but nothing like this! But then I heard the human describe it as a “Racoon.” I must say I am envious of the way the creature seems able to open any form of garbage containment unit to get to the juicy interior! I am also jealous of his cool black mask that covers his eyes! I wish I had one. But still, despite some cool attributes, I don’t like the way he walks around MY backyard acting like he owns the place! So the racoon is my nemesis of the month!

Feline Deep Thought of the Day

AMARULA: Sometimes when my human disappoints me, like when she pets me three times instead of two and a half like I wanted or she doesn’t check at the door every five minutes to see if I want back inside, I think of killing her. But then I think, if I killed her, who would feed me? So I let her live.
