Little woodland critters are the best pets… though everything I have read online seems to be contrary to this new found belief of mine.
So darn cute!
Look at that little face!
Cute right? How can I give this little guy up?
I know its the right thing to do… but maybe I don’t have to do the right thing just this once… maybe.
He is still on the bottle. This little guy broke his leg and lost his family when an old dead tree was cut down in the backyard. No one knew a family of raccoons had made their home inside. It wasn’t until the tree guy was hacking into it and all hell broke loose. Baby raccons were injured along with mama raccoon. She left this little guy behind. Nature is cruel. Mama raccoon knew he was too injured to keep so she left him to die in the backyard.
I had hoped she would come back for him, but after two nights of listening to the poor creature whine in agony I couldn’t take it any longer… I have a heart. So fast forward a bit and here I am with a cute little woodland critter.
I have no idea what to do with him.
Secretly I want to keep him.
However I know that I must ultimately relinquish him to an animal sanctuary for his own well being. UGH.
*insert childish tantrum*
I don’t wanna give him up!!!! He’s the neatest pet ever! And wild…. BAD ME. …. Decisions will have to be made soon especially since I travel as often as I do.
Hmmm… wonder what TSA would think of a pet raccoon in a cat carrier? Boy wouldn’t that be fun! LOL.
