To my usual readers: you don't have to read this post. Really. I'm not writing it for you guys (which is a good thing, trust me). Because that title? It's not a joke. But if you want to know why I'm writing this post, then scroll down to "Why I'm Writing This Post."

Getting to the point: A raccoon attacked and ate my parents' cat. My husband and I were house-sitting at the time, and we found what was left of the cat on the lawn. She was somehow still alive, so my husband bravely took her to the vet to be put down. And I cleaned up the lawn mess.
Why I'm writing this post: After we dealt with the mess, I did some Googling to see if this was some kind of freak incident or if it's something common that I'd just never heard of. I didn't find much, and what I did find was a lot of debate about raccoons' eating habits. So I just want to put this out there, in case someone else, in the future, Googles the same thing--yes, raccoons can and do eat cats. It happened to mine.
