Stanzie decided to take on a Raccoon again....
We just planted the garden and we think the Raccoon hopped the fence to check it out.
We have been keeping Stanzie in at night, due to a Raccoon encounter about 6 months ago.
But, the last time we denied her request to go out at night, she had an accident in the house.
So, last Saturday at midnight, when she asked to go out, we opened the door.....
Within minutes, she had a Raccoon attached to her face.
We came to her aid with flashlights and a shovel. Not sure we were all that much help to her.
We will spare you the details.
Stanzie will be fine, she has had her face shaved and wounds treated and is on antibiotics for a week. Her shots were all up to date. She has not missed a meal and her tail still wags. We are very sorry that is not the case for the raccoon :(
So, 10 year old 'Constanza Marie' is back under night time house arrest. The rest of the family would like a little less midnight drama.
