Response to raccoon (Original post)

Tue Oct 2, 2012, 08:53 AM

2. Growing up in small town Texas,

my neighbors had a leopard. Chauncy was it's name. Very docile, but once you watched the cat snap a frozen chicken in half in mid air, you remembered how dangerous she (I think Chauncy was a she, but it's been years) could be. When I was 6 or 7, she once took my hand in her mouth and wanted to show me something. So she tugged, not hard enough to bite, but I remember looking at the indentations in my hand afterward and being more than a bit nervous.

The cat normally stayed in a pen in their yard, but they would let her in the house sometimes.
