Our little raccoon baby is becoming quite independent. She grabs the bottle and wants to hold it herself, the problem is it weighs more than she can handle for more than a few seconds. It falls to the floor, she scrambles in a frantic manner to locate it and try as she might she cannot figure out how to get it back into her mouth with any success. I spend the entire feeding session placing the bottle back in her mouth and fighting her for control of the situation. SHE WANTS TO DO IT! She is one feisty little raccoon. I can't help but wonder what the next few weeks will bring
She has discovered that raccoons are curious.....yes it is bred into them....nothing is safe from their prying eyes and sensitive feet.
She is beginning to eat solid food now, mostly grapes, cherries and bananas. I've given her some dog food soaked in her milk and she seems to like it. Although I think she like taking the dog food and putting it in the water bowl and playing with it,more than she likes eating it.
Here she is sampling cherries, which seem to be her favorite.
My first trip outside...I'm not sure about this green stuff...
MOMMY! Hold me..pleaseeeee.
I've got a secret!
