the adventures of house sitting

I was awoken last night around 2:15 am to what sounded like the cats were fighting and jupming off furniture. I was so confused because they are normally pretty quiet at night. So I went downstairs to find a RACCOON on one of the little balconies. He was scratching at the door and the cat was freaking out and hissing at it. Then, it kept trying to climb up the house and get off the balcony, but every time it almost got up to the railing, he would fall. I felt a little bad for him, because he fell flat onto his back from about 4 feet up a few times that I saw. I almost wanted to help him, but knew that might not end up in my favor...anyways, he ended up being able to climb up and get off the balcony after I watched for a little while and held the cat.

The dog (Scrappy) sleeps outside so then I was scared that this irritated raccoon would go bug him, so I brought him inside. He barked for a bit because he didn't want to be inside. Alas, I couldn't fall back asleep very well. I then had a dream about angry raccoons coming after me. It was special.

I took my phone downstairs since I had no idea what was happening...this is the raccoon staring into the house. It was so creepy with his beady little eyes staring in!!
