martyc35 07/04/10 03:17 pm Why, thankyou, Pam. Here, we are hunkering down for the evening of noisy fireworks. Cats will be in hiding. My daughter Bonnie is here for the month. She goes outdoors to smoke. Last night, our raccoon, who stops by to find sunflower seeds on the ground below the bird feeder, first came to the door and looked in to be sure she was inside so the coast was clear. He's pretty smart. Oh, dear. I'd be distraught if I found his tail in my yard. Sorry about your baby fox. It's hard to imagine what happened, but I'd guess a large bird of prey.

Celeste 07/04/10 04:50 pm Thank you Pam! It will be quite noisy here tonight! Fireworks in some towns, mine for example, had their display last night and even in my "ole age", I still say ooh, ah! Unfortunately, amateurs will be lighting fireworks also, and it's best to not be riding around in a car on residential streets, in fact the first accident of the long holiday weekend, was reported this morning. A 36 yr old man on Long Island, losing his arm when a large firework placed in a pipe exploded unexpectedly while he was looking/checking.

Marty, that raccoon of "yours" is comical...I can picture him looking in!
Pam 07/04/10 04:51 pm We don't have any birds that big around us Marty. I think it was the runt of the family because the tail was very small. Maybe it just died and then was eaten by anything that could eat it, maybe rats or other foxes. One of the other cubs was around again this evening and I saw it at 5 am this morning too. They like the dim sort of light. Do you worry about the raccoons getting into your house? Enjoy the celebrations this evening.
