Raccoon Cafe Date Night

Since Alex was quite disappointed with the raccoons at Blind Alley Raccoon Cafe, where we went on our last date night, we decided to have another date night at the raccoon cafe where Anna and I went (with the more active raccoons). Alex met me at home (after eating at the office cafeteria), after I had put Baby M down to bed. We left our baby monitor with Anna (it’s awesome she’s our neighbor in many ways, but it’s an added perk that her bedroom can receive our baby monitor’s signal!).

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking, but I want to offer the following advice to people who are interested in going to the raccoon cafe: they’ve added even more dogs (normally, great), but while the raccoons are potty trained to only pee/poop on the pee pads/trays, the dogs will just go anywhere. So, even though the employees were picking up the dog poop and mopping up the pee, I’m pretty sure they did a terrible job keeping everything sanitary. Bottom line: be prepared to put the clothes you wore to the raccoon cafe directly into the wash when you get home, and take a shower.


Alex’s first close encounter with a raccoon


It looks like he’s surfing with a raccoon on his back…


One of these photos shows something ‘inappropriate’ (that a raccoon is doing)… 


Raccoons like to climb on you when you’re close to the fence. They’ve figured out they can use you to hop over the fence… yup, very clever!


Raccoons and husky dog, play-fighting


Despite how uncomfortable he looks, Alex enjoyed the raccoon cafe
