“Mom! Mom! Can I hug you? I want to hug you!”

Today I  met the babies that mama raccoon has been hiding. They came out from under the deck, one at a time and this was the first one to arrive.

 

"I love you SOOOO much Mom!"
“I love you SOOOO much Mom!”

 

Look at that little tongue…she probably spends a lot of time keeping the little one clean..you know how kids are.

    1. Thanks…I never thought about having to lick my children before…I’m not sure if I should thank you for making me think about it or not!

    1. Awwww…Thanks! That little baby just adored it’s Mama and was really silly with it’s siblings…Mama’s face, I agree, speaks volumes!

  1. I can just hear that kid going on incessantly … “Mom. Mom. Mom.” Mom’s helpless, resigned look in the second pic is hilarious.

  2. They are such hands-on, touchy-feely critters. My older brothers raised one as a pet when they found it at a very young age. It was very entertaining. As winter approached, it started looking for a warm spot to overnight. Dad said to haul it away to the woods when it started removing shingles.

      1. Especially if you’re a chicken or a small pet. They can really do a number on you if you get too close. A woman in Vancouver was bitten quite badly when one came in her open window. I don’t know if she’d been feeding them or had food out, but she had bad bites from the encounter, so be very careful.

        1. We make sure that we wear shoes when we walk where they walk…they carry some really horrible parasites….when you hear the noises they make just fighting with each other it sends chills up your spine….no raccoon encounters for me please…I stay far, far away…and shoot the images through a closed window!
