Things that go bump in the night no more

The critter has been back every night since he terrified me a couple of weeks ago when Wayne was out of town and before I reasoned that the serial killer I imagined at the back door would make a wee bit less noise. Since then we moved the cat food inside the screened-in porch so our new cat would not starve but the raccoon chewed through the screen AND THEN ate the cat food. Wayne borrowed a trap from the neighbor I'd phoned at 1:30 am and set it last night. It strolled in on schedule, ate the food and left without leaving a tip. So tonight Wayne greased the trap and fastened the cat food can to the wires so the wiley creature would have to trip the trap to eat. He came, he ate, we conquered. Now what??
