So a couple summers ago, there was this dumb raccoon who wouldn’t stay out of our daughter’s pool. Olive seemed rather peeved about it as illustrated here.
Then I got to thinking, what if I just opened the door for Olive and released her on this stinkin’ critter? Well, I actually received a few thoughts from readers on the matter and as it turns out, a cat trying to fight a raccoon would look something like Steve Urkel taking on a terminator with his bare hands. Due to their elastic skin and thick fur, it would be nearly impossible for Olive to do any damage on the varmint. Plus raccoons have claws of their own, much bigger than Olive’s, so it really wouldn’t be much of a fight at all; just a sad, one-sided backyard beat down.
Looks like you win this round, raccoon.
