Farewell, so long, auf wiedersehen, goodbye...

The Catalan girl broke the password code!!! I'm on line again!!! Weeee

The raccoons appear to have left the other house, we went in and there were no footprints at all in any of the flour trails upstairs, nor any on the second floor.

In the basement however, there was action. They had gone OUT!

They had not gone back in, so, we put a load of laundry in, sprinkled more flour around, and closed the cat flap. I closed the window down, but it was partially broken, and I want those beasties OUT!

SO I went outside. The window is in a deep well, so I hammered a piece of wood vertically and another horizontally over the opening, plus I placed an upside down recycling box in the well, wedged in with bricks and bottles, and then topped it off with what must have bee,n before all this rain, a 20 pond bag of sheep *ahem* manure, but it weighs considerably more now.

If the little twerps get in through all that, they deserve it.

I'll be back over there tomorrow to check out the flour and start to clean up a bit, well, a lot. I may leave some of the flour upstairs till Sunday. I want to be completely sure there is no motion before we lock the cat back in there.

Moving again (I think that makes four) on Sunday. The man arrives in a week and three quarters. How good is THAT!

OOOo, and if tomorrow goes really well....maybe PHOTOS!!!

congrats on defeating the little buggers! Though if they manage to get through the *ahem* manure, you'll have a hell of a stinky mess in your basement...

Glad you got them out. I am sure that barricade will hold them at bay.
