An unexpected visitor

Oooookay, so I was sitting in the living-room, typing away on my laptop, when I saw, out of the corner of my eye, what I thought was one of the cats wandering down the hallway just next to me.

Except it seemed a bit big.

I glanced over at it, and suddenly realized it was a raccoon. In the house. Blithely wandering about.

I shooed it out towards the back door, and it slipped out the cat-door, and waddled off.

What I find disturbing is that it apparently knows about cat-doors and their use.

Cat doors are easy. What's truly disturbing is finding out that the things know about regular doors. And keys.

Some people worry that cats will take over of the world when we're sleeping, I don't. It'll be the damn raccoons with their oposable thumbs. As I've recently learned they're attracted to yards with clutter in them and like to eat cat food. Your friend has probably been visited before and will do so again.

You've got to explain to the cats not to invite their "friends" in. On the other hand, maybe Cisco and Telly were hiding under the beds.

The cats were hiding behind the chair, actually, going something like, "AUGH! It's going to EEEAAAAT ME!"

Cat later that night: "Can't sleep. Coon's going to eat me. Can't sleep. Coon's going to eat me."

Flo Control.
Google for "Flo Control" for one person's solution to a similar problem =^.^=.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
