What is wrong with these pictures (besides the nose prints and hand prints on the door window)?

That’s what I came home two after a lovely dinner at my friend’s B and K’s house (and no, that’s not Burger King). Turns out there were two of the baby raccoons that had just sauntered up to the window completely unafraid and were peering into my house – the pictures I tried to take of the two of them just look like a big flash. You’ll have to take my word that there were two.

    I was actually kinda thinking that Malachi should have been freaking out too. But he was acting like he hangs out with baby raccoons all the time! My cat isn’t a very good guard kitty.

    Wow…it’s almost like you live in the country! I always thought that racoons were cute, too bad they can be so mean! Good thing the momma raccoon wasn’t around!

    Yeah I guess I should have clarified – we live in a standard Austin neighborhood. I think what really weirded me out was that the raccoons looked at me like they wanted to come inside, the way a domestic dog would look at you. Making extended eye contact with a couple of raccoon is an odd feeling.
