    LOL. I do believe they run only fast enough to prolong the encounter. I've seen them stop and look back at my neighbors dog as if to say: "Well! ... are you coming?!!"

    The local Toms come and sit outside the front window and watch the girls ... and drive them crazy.

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I had left the screen door only closed one night and heard a ruckus going on and when I got to the living room I saw my 12 yr old cat on his back legs clawing at the screen at a large racoon on the other side. Never had a racoon on my deck that early in the evening before. The racoon could have easily clawed through the screen and clawed him bad, but was obviously toying with him. The next night the racoon was back with 4 of it's months old babies and all were badgering him.

    Where I am they get pretty tame and surprisingly playful. One racoon was on a neighbor's diving board and was swiping at a stand up inflatable dolphin as it circulated around the pool. Sure enough he got a direct hit and that was it for the dolphin.

    It was 2:30 on Friday, I still had an hour left on the plotter I was working on and I told the Lt. I was dealing with that I had to leave. I had 5 more open tickets and a plotter to deliver. He wasn't happy. He kept trying to pin me down on a return time. "So, I can expect you back on Monday at 9?" Sure , I said, "You can expect me. However you will be the third person expecting me at that time, so two of you will be disappointed."....He did not like that answer.
