Just remember, that is the racoon's territory! They are meant to be outside in the wild! Not cats. Racoons are wild animals and they too need to eat and sleep. In my state, a trapper is required under law to kill a trapped racoon. Is that fair to that poor animal that because your cat is outside in the racoons territory that the racoon be killed? I am sorry for this rant, but I am a wildlife rehabber and work with racoons, squirrels, rabbits, skunks and other animals. The racoon's habitat is being destroyed by humans, so when they try to adapt and survive, along comes the same people and they destroy the racoon. Is that fair? Peple need to keep their DOMESTIC pets inside so the WILD ones can survive. I am sorry about your cat, I hope it is okay, but please don't hurt the racoon, it didn't do it on purpose, it is just trying to survive.
