I had a nighttime visitor to the cabin's deck last night. Mr. Raccoon was after the cat food I put out for the stray cats around Roundtop. After the cats get their fill, the raccoon appear, which drives the dogs crazy. As fas I can tell, the raccoon is silent, but Baby Dog keeps a lookout, and the howling starts as soon as the raccoon appears. The howling doesn't seem to bother it.
