My New Friends

Although we live in a "city" we often have little visitors. We've seen bunnies, skunks, coyotes, chipmunks and now....racoons in our backyard. We looked up one night and looking back at us were FIVE of these adorable little creatures! We were so excited! I ran and got the cat food to feed them. Ken wouldn't let me open the door until they were almost gone, but as soon as they heard me throw out the food to them, they came running back! What a thrill it was to watch them pick up the food and eat it! Once it was gone, they started scratching at our french doors wanting more. We would put our hands on the glass and they would put their paws over our hands. (If Ken wouldn't of been home, I would of opened the door to touch them for real!) I wish I could of recorded our 'ohhs' and 'ahhs'. We were so excited! Once they started to retreat again, I threw out more food.

The next day, I realized that feeding my new friends our cat food was a little too expensive. (The cats get the expensive food!) So, I went to WalMart and bought the cheap cat food. I had no idea how cheap cat food could be! Our cats are SPOILED. That night, my new friends were back, as hungry as before. JOY! Pure joy.
