Watch over your cats with raccoons around

Wildlife battles should keep residents on guard

In the last few weeks we have seen signs attached to telephone poles, in and around Beach Drive and St. Patrick Street, advising that three cats are missing.

At about the same time, a family of raccoons took up residence in a neighbour’s front yard.

One neighbour with two cats said she has seen three raccoons surround one of her cats. She was able to intervene that time, then on another occasion found one raccoon that looked as if it was preparing to jump on her other cat.
