Do raccoons kind of bunch up when they walk, so their back is higher than their head?  
If so, I saw a raccoon Thursday night on Old Knoxville Highway, on my way home from teaching the CAP class. If not, then it might have been a cat. But a cat with a strange walk and a ringed tail.

I did not hit it, whatever it was. This is good.

Yes, that is how raccoons walk.

The ones I have seen do have a tendency to "lumber". Yes.

Yes. They also "scuttle."

Remember that they're related to bears... :)

They often do. They can walk in other ways, too, but that's probably the most common.

I find them adorable. They are really rather clumsy for an arboreal creature, though. . . I feel a little nervous for them when I watch them climb trees.

Yep, that's a raccoon. I once saw a family of raccoons run across a road that way. I think it's very cute.
