Little Visitors

All day I kept hearing the oddest squeaky noises coming from my tall trees. There was at times a great rustling up there too.
I was in the west court yard working in the garden pruning branches and pinching off dead flower heads. I went in to get something to drink and when I came back there were three baby raccoons playing all around the table. They were being watched by Merlin (one of my cats) who was over seeing it all from the table top.
After a few minutes of watching I remembered my camera. Sadly, just in time to see all three of them going up the ladder into another tree. The smallest one was having a bit of trouble going up the rungs. 
They will be back I have to keep cat food out there.
