Blood in the Sky...............Light

So at about 6:30 am I was awakened by a rather excited cat, and the sounds of raccoons chattering. I followed the cat's gaze (who was sitting on the pillow next to me) up. And not a metre away on top of the skylight directly above my bed and my head were two raccoons. The one was sitting on the skylight and seemed to be having a bath, cat style. But he was pretty beat up looking. The other raccoon kept nudging it and stuff and it would cry out when it did. I remember thinking it was odd for them to be out in daylight. I went to get my camera to get a photo, but by the time I got ready the raccoons were moving off. That's when I noticed the one guy had left bloody paw prints all over the outside of the skylight. He'd been in a fight or something and was in bad shape. It was all very surreal watching this from below. They were there for about five minutes. Wish I got a photo.
Cheers,
Danielx
