My daughter's cat just had kittens tonight and she found a racoon trying to climb up the porch (steps aren't built yet). I assume it would have made it and gone after the kittens. Momma cat is not house-trained so I'm not too crazy about bringing her and the kittens inside. We have a small dog (Corgy) but I don't know if it would scare a 'coon off or not. How high can 'coons jump? I have a four-foot tall table I could move the cats to if it would do any good. Any suggestions on how to protect the kittens tonight?
