Raccoon rescue

On Friday I was wandering around the dumpsters looking for Lionel looking inside and under just in case when I discovered a raccoon inside one of them.  The dumpster walls were about five feet high and I was worried that he was stuck in there and couldn't get out so I rummaged around and found a ladder and put it in for him with some food.  I was relieved to discover that he was gone by the next day.

No sign of Lionel though, and the other dumpster cats are acting strangely, Lily ran off and didn't eat which isn't like her and Arrow was running around meowing but also not eating.  I wish I knew what was going on....


  1. Could be raccoons are scaring them. They can be quite vicious with cats over food.

  2. Is it possible that someone is feeding and trapping them?

  3. It might be the raccoons, or maybe they've got a bug of some kind. I'm sure nobody is trapping them...
