Well, this is what I came home to yesterday!!! These Little devils were perched atop my neighbour's roof. How cute are these guys?? My daughter wanted to pet the kitties..I said Honey those are not kitties and you can't touch them- they bite!!

So my first thought was --OMG they are probably baking to death out there- hot roof, 100 degree weather, full sun!!!

I called the SPCA and explained there were 2 baby raccoons stuck on a roof. the lady said- they got themselves up there so they will get themselves down. Uh.... OK .....then apparently I have to call pest control and pay to have them removed.

We had a similar situation last year when there were 2 raccoons perched on my fence post.

So long story short, my husband and neighbour climbed up and shooed them into a garbage can with a lid and drove them out to the country. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen..and scary.. I had 911 on standby just in case they got bit or fell off the roof.

holy smokes i would not have wanted to deal with them. they're undeniably cute from a distance...but a wild animal up close? i wouldn't have known what to do!
