My heart is beating fast just reading this...as someone that had a mother racoons and her 4 babies in my back yard last summer, I could relate with the fear of the situation. I did alot of research on raccoons and they mean and can be very aggressive, they were killing cats around here.
The raccoons have gone away for the winter, around here....not sure where they went.
I like your treat idea, I think I might start that one....though I am not sure Casper would come....he is not treat driven, Missy would come.
I read in a situation like that you should turn the hose on the raccoon or throw rocks at the raccoon. What we did last summer we had to come in before dark, when the raccoon came out, then I put Casper on a leash if he need to go out. It was a real drag....we couldn't sit out in the evening because of the stupid raccoons. They like my waterfall in my yard and the neighbors fruit trees.
I am so glad Sissygirl came in the house....and she is ok.
