While I appreciate my neighbors wanting to help right now, I wish they would not set out food by the cat area after dark. And our power was down so I can't retrieve the footage of the cam of who did this.

Cooper and Raccoon. 5 minute video but Raccoon shows no interest in Cooper, just a "leave me alone" type attitude.

Im NOT too sure that raccoon wasnt interested in Cooper..It looks like it could be dangerous for Cooper...

That's actually the way raccoons move, even around each other. I even see them act and look like that when by themselves. A healthy raccoon really will not kill a cat unless it feels threatened or hungry. Since my well meaning neighbor set out food the raccoon is not hungry and it didn't look like Cooper was taunting him/her. If the raccoon meant to harm Cooper you'd see a very aggressive behavior. I saw it at the wildlife rescue when I was volunteer so this was disinterest, unlike the video of Treasure swatting at him.
