Stranger Fruit


In May I reported on marmots allegedly killing cats in Washington. Now it seems the raccoons are in on the action and “a gang of raccoons that shows no fear has killed at least 10 cats and attacked several more.”

But, they look so cute …

    I know people think of them as pets, but I don’t understand cats. At least something is finally taking a stand against these foot-and-a-half-long psychotic carnivores.

    I think it’s about time for the age of the era when all men can relate a story about a girlfriend who loves her cat so much that no man can compare so that her loneliness and ensuin bitchiness is her own damn fault. Go Racoons!

    This morning National Geographic quoted a local expert saying that it was just hysteria. There were two or three raccoon battles earlier this summer and now every missing pet is being blamed on urban raccoon gangz ‘n’ th’ ‘hood.

    Bad humans! How can any reasonably intelligent person not like cats?

    Aerik, I have never found my cats as pleasant company as my husband. Perhaps the fault is not with the felines…

    Marmots are pure evil. I’ve lost many a Chaco, climbing rope and tent to their demonic little teeth.

    Raccoons drown dogs that are chasing them if you’re fool enough to let your dog run alone, but I’ve never heard of them attacking cats. I’m not surprised to hear it’s probably untrue.

    Personally I love cats… dogs? I prefer OPD’s, best breed there is …

    Other People’s Dogs, like snotty little pre-teens, they go home at the end of the day.

    Pity the racoons may be snacking on them, or the Marmots, but people take that chance when they let their cats out.
