Thanks, Crittercall, for trying to help, but help is not needed.
-feral cats, Shadow and Phantom, are not mine.
They belong to my boyfriend's mother's friend, Jeremy. He feeds them, takes them to the vet. Why, he even had them neutered and spayed. They are barely feral anymore, now allowing even me to hold and pet them, which is why I said semi-feral.
Jeremy has made a LOT of progress with them, and they are well loved and well cared for. I have nothing to do with that. I simply went along with Sharon to feed them while Jeremy was out of town. Jeremy is now back in town and back to caring for his kitties.
As for the raccoon, he or she is, again, not my problem. It showed up at Jeremy's house, and this is likely not the first time. Raccoons are EVERYWHERE out here (along with skunks,) and I am not about to go on some raccoon relocation crusade
and relocate all of them. They don't bother me and I don't bother them. Regardless, the raccoon I photographed visits Jeremy's house. If it becomes a problem for him or his cats, I am positive he will deal with it as it is appropriate. He is a very avid animal, wildlife, and nature lover. Any creature, big or small, that wanders onto his property, is in good hands, as he knows what to do. So I am not concerned.
If Shadow would just stop dragging home dead rats, the raccoons wouldn't even enter Jeremy's property. He feeds them inside only, to avoid raccoon problems. But alas, you can't control a 100% tame cat, nor can you control a semi-feral cat. They will do what they will do, and Shadow, apparently, has an appetite for rats.
I am still a bit baffled as to why these things came up since I wasn't complaining about the raccoon, nor did I say s/he was causing any problems, but oh well. Thank you, regardless, Crittercall. I know you were just trying to help and it's good to know there are knowledgable people around here, available to offer help.
