Ok folks, I think my daddy may be a former feral too. I've seen him eat beef and it is crazy. He leaves crumbs after he eats, he won't close the bread bag after he makes a sandwich and he hates the flashy box too! Not to mention his messy litterbox habits. tee hee hee. Just kidding.
There are other reasons, but here is some photographic evidence that may make it certain.
This is one of our feral racoons. She now has three tiny babies that come up to eat at our bird feeders (the peanuts are actually for the blue jays - we have 4!) Look at how she munches on those peanuts.
This is my daddy. He munches on peanuts like a wild racoon! He does this not just when baseball is on either....
What do you all think?? Maybe daddy and I have more in common than we thought!
