The Nightly Ritual: (Out of Control)

It's black and white in the air above me and on the ground. The mother ringtail use to come up with her two brothers from the mother before that would come eat in the kitchen. Then about a month or so ago she started coming up with her babies and putting them in the rafters for guests and myself to feed hot dogs while she went off hunting. She'd come back and get them just before daylight and take them back towards the river where all the creatures of the night live. Now they come up on their own and it's a rare appearance when mom comes with them. The mother skunk would bring her two babies up and about a week or so ago she did the same thing. She'd leave them under the porch while she went off for something other than hot dogs. The nights are very entertaining.
