We have been so elated that Skinnyman was eating all his hi-protein cat food every night not realizing that he had a clandestine helper.  Here is Mr. Skinny noshing on his fave scrambled eggs only to be chucked out-of-the-queue by [...]

We just don’t seem to get enough of the grins and chuckles provided by our surreptitious visitors, especially those that sneak in for late-night dining.  One of the raccoon families is incredibly faithful in their patronage and they pass the [...]
