hehe, Nature, better than TV!

I wish I had such views out my window... but not enough wildlife. Also, I wish I could OPEN my window without inviting all the outside bugs and critters inside... I sooooooo need a screen...

This is a bit late, but I'm so glad you called animal rescue! And in time to save them from starving too, no less. I'm so glad that's what you decided to do!

I had no idea that racoons killed cats, though.

Sources (like wiki and others I was looking at just now) say that raccoons rarely attack cats unless the cat is aggressive or territorial... but I've seen programs and read in many other places that raccoons can and will kill cats if food is involved (such as a cat or dog's outdoor food bowl)

The main prog I remember seeing on it said that many people in the area had taken to keeping their cats indoors at all times or making screened porch areas for their cants to sit outside in because of the loss of cats to raccoons their neighbors had suffered.

So, I say it's best not to take chances. If you have cats and there are known raccoons in the area, take care to keep tabs on the cat, or see if there's a way to relocate a possible dangerous 'pest'. Rabbies is also a BIG concern with raccoons alot of the sources say too...
