look what we found in our basement

four baby raccoons

Yup. Four baby raccoons. Had to have the furnace man come and extract them from the furnace duct! Now to catch the mama.

Yes, they’re cute.

No, we’re not going to keep them.

    Raccoons make me shudder. Yes, they are cute but they’re scary.

    They are SO CUTE! Did you release them somewhere else?

    Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see any tiger cubs at the zoo. There were quite a few tigers in the habitat though. I would say about six of them. While looking at the photographs, my son made the comment that they looked young. Maybe, some of them were last years cubs!

    I would have LOVED to see the cubs! The big cats are my favorite!

    LOL! How cool is that! First hand experience with raccoons! Good you aren’t keeping them although I have known folks who did until they reached maturity. Not necessarily a good plan. Mama found a warm place for them anyway! Might have been HOT had it been earlier! What a fun adventure for all!
