That's right. I think that they were the creatures under my house. Here are the methods we (there were several people involved in exorcising them from the house). Note: they were located between the floor of the house and the shower/bathtub stall that sits on top of it. See THIS to get a metal picture of the actual size of this bathroom.

  • Pounding on the shower stall for 1 1/2 hrs.
  • Dropping mothballs under the shower (oh, yeah. great idea. however, my house will now smell like mothballs for months.)
  • Running a vaccuum in the shower for 10 minutes.
  • Sliding one sheet of paper in the crack that was created after the caulking pulled away from the floor. (this was especially fun when I touched one of the babies with the paper and they shrieked bloody murder.
  • Shining a flashlight under the miniscule crack to frighten them with light (supposedly raccoons HATE this.
  • Yelling at them. Loudly. Thank goodness my roommate was gone at the time.
  • Leaving the light on all night in the bathroom to keep them quiet.
  • Listening to the mom move around the shower. (How did I know it was her? She was so big that her fur rubbed along the sides of the shower (underside). Yakkkk.)
  • Giving up and finally watching TV.

So what happened? They decided they'd had enough at about 11:30pm and my roommate came home in time to hear them LEAVE.

yes. yes. yes.....sweet victory was mine. Gone. Gone. Gone.
