D: They arn't squirrels......  
We finally got someone to come out about the mystery critters in the roof. We had our regular orkin guy come out to give us advice since we couldn't get anyone else to come out and get anything bigger. He offered to take care of it with sticky strips if they were somthing small like rats/mice/chipmunks.

But they're not.

We have 3 racoons living in the roof XD

That's so much worse.. and those things carry rabies...

But I can't stop laughing XD HAHAHA

Anyway.. I think we're going to get one of those no-kill traps that shuts behind the animal and doesn't kill it. Then we'll catch them and call.. I guess animal control or somthing...
Which will probably kill them anyway... >..<

Poor racoons. But I think it's utterly hilarious for some reason

Wow, racoons. That's way bigger than your other guess of squirrels. That's kind of scary, actually. Heh.

Well, it totally explains why it sounded like they were sumo wrestling up there, and why they were making noises I couldn't quite identify XD

Racoons! I hear they can be noisy little buggers. XD

At least you don't have bats in your bellfrey!

They are really loud. I've taken to banging a broom handle against the ceiling when they start acting up. It scares them, and they get quiet for a while.
Next, I'm going to park a couch on my lawn and put a truck up on some cinderblocks, drink beer, and watch 'em wrassle

I had to gather eggs for my grandpa when he went on a trip once and something kept getting the eggs. So I put one of those no-kill traps out and caught a skunk! I couldn't move it because it would spray me, and I couldn't get past it to gather eggs, either. Guess what grandpa did when he got back? The great thing about no-kill traps is that it keeps the animal still so you can shoot them. :O

Aww.. but they are so cute :(
I'm in city limits, so I can't exactly discharge firearms anyway I like. But I wouldn't shoot them anyway T..T
