These photos are from 10/15/2010. These raccoons are a family that began visiting our back yard and patio last year as a mother and pair of offspring. They’d turn up every couple weeks, foraging for bugs in the yard and any food left out for our cat. This appears to be the sister-brother combination of last year and their nearly full-grown offspring. The attraction when these photos were taken was the hard cat food. I poured a bit more on the steps so they’d stay long enough for my granddaughter to see them.
