yes, Penny, our cats are strickly indoor ones.  this is an OLD pond, and
not the first time this has happened, but it has been 4 or 5 years since it
happed.  I'm for putting chicken wire over the top but it would have to be
rather large piece and the racoon would probably tear things up by diggin
under it.  
	On another front, we have the professional horticulturists touring our
yard tomorrow evening and we wanted everything to look "perfect" - or at
least as perfect as it CAN.  Why or why does this have to happen NOW?
