Last night, I woke up to a very strange loud sound in my condo complex. My little dogs went crazy. At first I thought something was stuck in the garbage bins. It sounded like a high pitched squeeeeeel, over and over. It was not a cat. Not a cyote. I ran down to the parking lot to see if I could help free it, somehow. The sound stopped as I got outside. As I walked towards the end of the path between the condos, facing east towards the retaining wall and some very tall trees, I saw the shadow of two critters. They were about two or three times the size of a cat walking all all fours with pointy ears, long snout and a long balancing tail, slightly but not too much bushy. One went up a tall tree. The other continued to explore past me between the wall and trees then came back and went up after it's partner. I heard what sounded like a hiss and a soft mewing sound. The large tree brach bent down under the weight. They seemed to be watching me. I thought I might be scaring them and decided to go back inside. My complex has only one entrance. There is a large cinder block retaining wall that keeps critters out but not humans. These could climb, so they could climb the wall. My first thought was racoons, maybe a fisher (like a weasel) only with big pointy ears and long skinny leggs. We don't have a very impressive wild life listing, but this is something I've never seen or heard before in the twenty years I've lived here (off TO near Erbes). Just thought I'd mention the sighting.
