Met Jodi and Allison last night and we had a very relaxed evening at our favourite sushi hangout, rehashing the con. When we finally got to Allison's, there was a baby raccoon wandering nearby, looking very lonely and scared. A neighbourhood child told us the raccoon's mother had been killed by a car. Allison's husband John lured the baby raccoon into a cat carrier with some food, and then called the Humane Society. We named him Oreo. :-)
