Baby Raccoons

This morning down by the water, we found some baby raccoons. To give you an idea of how tiny they were, that is a normal step they're underneath; they were about 6 inches long. They made the cutest little purring, squeaky noises, even though it probably meant that they were terrified. I hope their mommy came back to get them. I'm gonna check on them again here in a minute.

Was it you who helped me wrangle the baby possum in my apt on Grooms? It was really cute despite its inherent possum-ness.

Yes, that was me. That opossum sure was cute, but nothing compares to those fucking raccoons.

cute!!!

Funny, I had to help Victor wrangle a baby possum at his old apartment on Grooms (it was in his trash can, not in the apartment). What is it about Grooms and baby possums?

We had possums living in our garage at my first house. This was in, like, 1985. It required a big production to get rid of them. I've been afraid of and repulsed by those things ever since. Baby raccoons, however, are evidently adorable.
