The skateboarding dog is back!

“The dogs went on the back deck and had quite a swoon
For there in the dog bed lay this gi-normous racoon!
(This thing must have weighed 25 pounds!)

From Mt. Pleasant”

“I just moved into the neighborhood at Kansas and 8th and for the past few days, this cat seems to be living under my porch. She is very young, almost a kitten, with gray tabby patches and an orange tabby patch on her back leg. She is friendly, not feral, but hungry. I need help finding her owner as these thunderstorms are about to roll through! Alternately, maybe someone is interested in adopting this kitten? aertel(at)gmail”

  • Awesome Animal Fix today! I love the skateboarding dog. And the raccoon probably thought he was so lucky to find such a comfy place to snooze.

  • Agreed- Great pics today!

    I am the poster who found the kitten, and I just want to say that if no one claims her, I am going to get her shots and spaying. Then she would be all ready to be adopted! I cannot keep her because I live in a studio and already have a cat. Please feel free to email me if you are interested in meeting her, she is much cuter in person!

      It’s awesome what you’re doing! Rescue orgs (like http://www.homewardtrails.org/) can get the kitty into a foster home until it gets adopted.

      thank you for doing this! i’m sorry i can’t adopt her but we already have two and my wife would kill me. hopefully she will find a good home soon!

    That raccoon is like –

    “WOO HOO I have your comfy be-ed and you-oo doooon’t”

  • kittykittycatt

    Great animal fix!!! I love it all!!!!!

  • Ger B

    That raccoon has got some nerve.

  • The bulldog is awesome! Now if only the will teach JJ, the new Georgetown mascot, to do that! If you want a little puppy cuteness to brighten your day, find him on YouTube.

    For some reason I’m impressed that the raccoon knew that the bed was a bed. I guess it just seemed like a comfy place to crash.

  • I sent in the raccoon picture. When the dogs went outside, there was a lot of barking, hissing, and general pandomonium. After the dogs were flung back inside, we called animal control who said to just ignore the critter, and he would leave. A little while later, he was snoozing away AND SNORING. He eventually left though.

      That is so awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever found a raccoon to be cute before. Consider this a first!

    • My parents feed a raccoon on their back porch. It kept coming up nightly to partake in the barn cat’s food and eventually it was just like a routine. Now if they don’t see it then they wonder where he is!

      man, I love raccoons. they’re so freaking cute. it’s just too bad they are prone to being rabid troublemakers.

      • ich

        they’re like a cross between a fox, a cat, and a lemur. awesome.

  • me

    Stupid question- I assume you know for a fact it’s a “she”? I know that it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially when they’re young, unless a vet tells you one way or another. If it was a boy, I’d be up for taking it in, but we already have 2 female cats in the house that wouldn’t play nice with another girl. :(

    • aertel

      I am actually now 90 percent sure he IS a boy! Going to the vet on Thursday so I will know for sure but…those look like balls to me. I have been calling him Whitney Mewston so he may have some gender confusion but he is very very sweet and playfu. Email me ([email protected]) if you are interested in coming to see him.

    OH! pesky raccoons! One has made a buffet of my goldfish a few times. I will never forget walking out the door at 4am.. turning to look over and there he was.. “if I stand perfectly still.. you can’t see me!” Big ol sucker too. Seeing as there is mt pleasant in the caption, I’m guessing it is the same one or part of the same clan. I called animal control before as well.. they said they’re all over dc.. who knew!?
