Not On My Watch!: Cat Chases Would-Be Raccoon Home Invader Through Cat Door

November 21, 2018

This is some footage from a home security cam unusually aimed at the bottom half of an exterior door (maybe this has happened before?) starring a protective cat who chases a raccoon away from the house, presumably after it thought it could help itself to an early Thanksgiving dinner. Not tonight, raccoon! Now that's a cat who has clearly earned its Fancy Feast. Still, it's kind of crazy to think about all the things we've missed seeing prior to the proliferation of inexpensive home security cameras. Like right now *loads feed from home security camera on phone* there appears to be a large man in my backyard treating one of my potted plants like a public toilet. *looks down to see crushed begonias between legs* I'm just not cut out for adult life, I'm really not.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks again to n0nentity, who agrees the best raccoon deterrent is not eating trash.

  • Use the proper raccoon repellent, Critter repellent and raccoon removal California to control the animals to get enter in your home.

    this is shot-for-shot the video of my recent colonoscopy. how'd you get this?

    I bribed your doctor.

    The suspect got away with this too... Smart enough to wear a mask.

  • Video ended before it showed the trash panda coming back and ripping the fuck out of that cat. Raccoons will kill the shit out of cats if the need arises. They fight dirty, it's trash panda prison rules. Hell, they can wreck dogs too.

    I think you're right GW, there was something going on and they wanted to catch it. Huge props to the cat too. That was some mighty fine house security work in action.

    Agreed. Was waiting for that relatively tiny cat to get f*cked up. Reminds me of the time I walked around the corner of my house to find myself about 5 feet away from a big-ass black bear. I yelled at it, and it ran off about 3 steps before slowing down and obviously stopping to think "wtf am I running away from this skinny pale thing for?" Needless to say, I was already on my way inside. You can see this racoon eyeballing the cat with the same thought process.

    Ended too soon, but it did show the coon didnt run away either. It just fell down the stairs while the cat sat and laughed

    Ha, trash panda.

    I lived in a rural area when I was in my 20's, and I'm feeling like this particular racoon wasn't very motivated, and this cat was pretty lucky.

    Cats otherwise known as felis catus are small furry animals that walk on four legs typically weighing 9-10 pounds.... though some fatties can grow upwards of 24 pounds . Cats require a protein rich diet and predominantly hunt red dots. Cats once developed advanced societies and built pyramids and star gates. Today the remnants of the catari empire consist of ruins falsely attributed to ancient man as well as any box large enough to squeeze into.
