At 4.35am I was woken by loud thudding noises in the kitchen. While half asleep I thought that Joshua was throwing away a lot of garbage.
"THUD" The noise of a door being closed.
"THUNK" Something falling.
"FWACK WACK ACK"
Suddenly my fogged brain realized that there were raccoons in the kitchen.
I shook Josh and we staggered out into the dark kitchen. There were scuffling sounds and some more WACK WACKS as they escaped through the cat door. Looking around we saw that they had been trying to get into the big catfood storage bin which has a latched lid. I stuffed some sofa cushions in front of the cat door and a short while later spotted one on the deck trying again.
Really fed up with raccoons this morning.
