Two doors up, who have their bedroom in the back, tell me my raccoon baffles are working because this year they're not woken early by raccoons snarling at the birds, squirrels, or their own babies, as raccoons have been wont to do these many years past. They're woken early by the flipping birds, but that goes with the territory.

My squash plants are sprouting happily in their pots. Must buy more netting because soon I shall have to transplant some at least to a bed. Should google as to whether one can keep squash plants in pots on a table (in the only sun my garden gets.) They spread so much, I rather doubt it. But the bees need to get at the flowers, if and when, and for that one can't have double netting.

I think that what clawed through the single netting to dig in the swimming pool garden was perhaps a cat, or kitten. There was nothing growing where the creature dug, hence not squirrel. And what else would dig?

*smiles* - ahhh the fun and games and trials and tribulations of having a garden.

As to little critters that dig, if in the UK I would have asked if it could've been hedgehogs, or moles ... (I don't know ... do you get badgers at all?)

I have been privileged enough to have spotted badgers twice in the time I lived in England.

Hedgehogs and moles, how Beatrix Potter. No, none of those in this city. Or at least, in this part of the city. Squirrels, raccoons, and skunks is what we run to.
