  • We keep the door to the mudroom propped open for the "outside" cat, Spot. This morning when I got up, I heard Spot calling. I didn't think anything about it because he's kind of impatient about his food sometimes. When I turned on the light, I found this little guy on the window perch, Spot on the floor of the mudroom, and the door closed. I opened the door so the raccoon could escape, and then had a stern talk with Spot about answering ads on Craigslist without pictures.
