I know you have all been waiting for the final report on the racoons. I truly wish it were more exciting, but alas, it isn’t. After two days of waiting for the mountain lion poop to do it’s job I resorted to torture. I put a radio in the bathtub, covered it with a blanket (which didn’t really help I might add) and put on the “revival” station. I suffered right along with the racoons, sometimes you just have to take one for the cause! After about 12 hours of that stuff non-stop, I think they actually packed up that night and left. But, just to be sure, I suffered through it for another day. I have never been so happy to go back to work as I was on that Monday morning! So, it’s been a week now, no more noises, fights or massacres under my house. Happy days…life is good.

Congratulations. I presume you have fixed things so that they can never get in again.

Somehow, this calls to mind the lyrics of an old song from about 35 years ago called “Rocky Racoon”.

“Rocky Racoon checked into his room, only to find Gideon’s bible.
Giden checked out, and left it, no doubt, to aid in good Rocky’s revival.”

You are too funny. I am sooo glad you got your dilemma dealt with! And I am glad you kept us up to date. And CharlieM1958 I pretty much think put the cap onto the story, LOL!!! Well its all taken care of and I am sure you have had quality sleep this week. LOL!!! By the way what’s the weather like in your neck of the woods. We got spring snow! Gee what fun!!!
Nothing at all compared to Racoons and Mountain Lion crap under one’s bathtub tho’!
Thanks for sharing this story and thanks for the smile!

I take it from your tone that you will not be giving glowing referrals for the “Terminator” who recommended/used the Mountain Lion poop. And, who knew the words of a radio preacher could exorcise that type of demon?

Thanks for sharing your story and giving us all a laugh along the way!

Yes, Bureaucrat, I put a new screen on with razor wire (just kidding) and Charlie I too remember Rocky Racoon, thanks for the memories. Allison, glad you enjoyed the story…it has been raining for two days, but we had sunshine before that..spring snow…can’t say I miss that. And Lew, no, I will not be recommending people call wildlife rescue, I will instead give them the number of the radio station. Thanks all…

Yes, you’re happy now.
But if you silent night makes you feel so boring….do not hesitate to let ‘em (the racoon) know!

I can’t really have your problem because my house is on a slab. My brother had your problem and got rid of the critters with noise. However, I’d swap anytime for the little experience I had with a skunk in the house. Believe me, noise won’t work on those little fella’s. And, unlike coons, when a skunk has made his way out of the house, he leaves a distinct reminder of his presence.
