    I've been trying for two weeks to catch this guy. Seems he didn't care for the marshmellows or the canned cat food. So I took some of my cat's expensive cat food and threw it in the cage. Well he must have liked it enough to venture inside to get more. I don't know what so special about this food but my cat would gorge himself on it if I let him. I only give it to him as a treat once a week.

    I agree, lurky! Hard to imagine something so cute can cause so much trouble, but they sure do!

    Congratulations I'm sure you are happy to see that critter behind bars. Do NOT give up the vigil they are not solitary creatures!

    OH yea and make that darn cat earn his vittles. you sit him in front of the coon and repeat " This is the enemy if you want the expensive food you keep the mean coon away!!" [​IMG] or better yet hold the feed in front of the cat and say " If the coon comes back it gets the feed"

    Motivation is the key!

    LOL The barn cat left me a half eaten rat this morning on the back porch! yuck But the indoor cat he's so fat his stomach swings back and forth when he walks/runs! I don't think he could catch the raccoon if his life depended on it. lol I swear the cat gets fatter everyday and I moniter his food. I think he sneaks and eats the dogs kibble too. [​IMG]

    I have a big ole' fat cat just like that. He terrorizes every one but who he is supposed to. I call him "Osama Bin George"

    Coon's like dog food too. I've caught them in the dogs garbage can full of food before. Just takes off the lid and sits inside eating his fill.

    He is really really cute though, will might a nice coon skin hat for somebody for Christmas [​IMG]
