The other morning I went out to feed the outside & ferals cats. There are 4 adults and 2 - 10 week old kittens. They are fed in the garage which they access thru a pet door. The dishes were empty which is unusual. Then I noticed the container that has the food was open. I figured it was a coon. Last nite I put a camera out there and sure enough the dishes were empty and the coon had been in there. He also opened the container with the food and even managed to get the scoop out so he could get in there. I know I can keep the container closed so he can't get in that but not sure what I should do with the food dishes. The cats feed quite a bit at nite and I don't want to suddenly not have any food for them especially the kittens. I have a chest freezer right there. If I put the dishes on there would that be safe from the coon? I know the adult cats can jump up there but not sure about the kittens. How high can a coon jump? Or should I not put any food out there for a couple of days until the coon moves on?
