Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

When the Cat's Not Around . . . .



Jake wasn't on his job - again. While he was in the house in bed sleeping off his hangover from Skeezix's party, we had some returning visitors on our deck. Dad was up very late at night and he saw them - two raccoons! Mom took photos of the evidence this time.




They were interested in the drip pan for the grill, but they also seemed to like something else.

I guess they thought that it was a finger bowl! Serves Jake right for not defending his territory!

Rosie & Cheeto -

After all my years of hunting, at 15 I'm now retired and like to sleep inside at night. Jake pretends that he's such a tough guy, but I think it's just an act.

Those raccoons can be terribly pesky creatures! You need to keep an eye out for them at all times. If you're not careful, apparently, they like to climb into your cars too should you leave the windows down and eat any left over food you may have forgotten to bring inside with you.

But don't ask me how I know that. I think I heard it through the grapevine...
