PhinneyWood reports a case of raccoons attacking a neighbor’s cat. As most Ballard residents know, raccoons are a common sight around here. In fact, one walked right into our kitchen a couple weeks ago and gave us a good scare. (There was quite a discussion recently in the My Ballard forum about raccoon sightings around the area — even a couple hanging out in the old Denny’s parking lot.) The tipster who emailed PhinneyWood wants to make sure that cat owners are careful — especially if you have an unsecured cat door.
