Cute, But...

We might have a problem...

234Ryan saw 6 in all.

The next morning I called animal control.
Remember me and animal control are tight.

Here's how part of the call went.
Me: Ummm. We saw 6 coons in our garage last night.
AC: That's a problem.
Me: Yes. Is there anything you can do about it?
AC: We can come set a trap.
Me: Great! They are eating our cat's food.
AC: Oh, well. Is your cat's food in the garage?
Me: We keep it locked in our shed, but yes, we feed her in the garage.
AC: We can't do anything about the coons then.
You have to remove the food source.
Me: Ok. Well then, how do I feed our cat?
AC: If you don't remove the food source they will keep coming.

Thank you for answering my question.
Trust me, it just got more confusing from there.

So, I called in my own personal animal control.
My 15 year old nephew.
So far he's caught a possum.
And 3 coons.

Two at once one night.
Brookie thought they were so cute.
She had to take pictures.Can't wait for our next conversation, animal control.
We have such confusing frustrating enlightening talks.

Eli loves the animal excitement at your house. Especially when your nephew and the gun show up :)

It seems you're the person I will be calling if I ever need to call animal control....that's another hilarious story, but I'm glad you're just taking matters into your hands with your nephew....

We were thinking of turning our cats into outdoor cats, like Mia. Hmm... we might need to rethink this.

In my experience animal control is useless. We have our own alternate go to person as well. =]
