    I called AC about the squirrels and they said they don't handle them. So I
    don't think so on the raccoons, I will go look again and see if I see any
    evidence of them. Will take the yardstick in case they come at me.

    The squirrel man said they could re-locate but as you say that's not really
    humane they just end up in a strange area they don't know and get beat up by
    the animals that already live there. Being the new squirrel in town is
    tough.

    I just checked and do not see any evidence of it... I don't think it likes
    NPR.

    The squirrels around here do that too.

    I'm disturbed that the raccoons live in sewers. I fear they will turn into
    some mutant nemesis of Batman.

    They are in our storm sewers in suburban Denver also.

    They climb all over our roof getting access via grape vines, ivy, or
    silver lace vines. They are good climbers and very agile. They recline
    on the beams over the patio and stuff themselves with half-ripe Concord
    grapes. We've had three and four of them at a time.

    A few years ago we had to call animal control because there was one at
    the back of the yard who wasn't moving. Canine distemper was the
    diagnosis and they urged me to call all the neighbors who have dogs and
    urge that the dogs be vaccinated if they weren't already.

    I don't want them clawing through my attic wall... They can sun themselves
    in the gutter all they want. But I draw the line if they start destroying
    the house, and pooping all over the place other than in the toilet.... My
    ex said the neighbors told her the previous owner awoke one morning and
    there was one sitting on her kitchen table!

    So is there a network of them in storm sewers throughout the US... Boston,
    Seattle, Tallahassee please report in... If they are throughout the sewers
    of America, then this is something Obama needs to take care of in the second
    term. Maybe he can send in Biden, or Hillary. Biden or Hillary will scare
    the beejebus out of them. And they will all move to Canada.

    More likely, it left because you smell like rotted skunk carcass. It moved
    on to a nice restaurant dumpster, which smells like a field of jasmine
    compared to your foul ass. I'd suggest you bathe, but the runoff would be
    toxic to innocent animals.

    I wasn't aware that raccoons can get dog distemper. I thought that the
    strain of distemper in raccoons is the same strain that infects cats, so
    if there are raccoons around, cats should definitely be vaccinated.

    I just looked it up and for sure, raccoons can have canine distemper in
    addition to cat distemper (feline panleukopenia).

    For dinner, I only had some mac and cheese I made up for lunch and had
    leftover. I took a meatloaf (uncooked) out of the freezer to cook
    tonight but it'll have to be for tomorrow. The mac and cheese was
    really good for a change! just a white sauce with more butter than
    flour, which seemed to make it better, whereas I used to use same ratio
    to make the bechamel sauce. Added what was left of my milk and subbed
    in some half and half to make up the rest. I used a little swiss,
    american, cheddar and parm cheese.

    Lousy pictures taken indoors, but they were divine. I used Peckerino
    Romano cheese (imported, of course):

    Sauce was butter, garlic, salt, and then sprinkled with the cheese and
    tossed to coat. With squiggly fries.
