I first noticed Robyn when she told this story at a party: It seems that her mother was bothered by raccoons on their land. She would catch them in hav-a-heart traps then drive them down the road. But was it far enough that they wouldn't come back? She figured she'd find out, so she painted their toenails before she released them.
Robyn's telling of this story made me fall off a couch laughing.
Here's another bit of Ann-genuity in protecting a very old cat who likes to lounge in the road.
