My adventures with baby Coons!

It was quite the weekend. I do hope those of you in the US enjoyed a fun day with family and friends. Myself, I became the care taker of cute little baby raccoons.

Early Sunday morning, I noticed one baby coon on the side walk in front of my house. It kept calling for its mother. I left it there for a while hoping the mother would show up ....

By 10:00 a.m. there was still no sign of the mother .... I looked across the street and there's another little coon.

They both looked so tired  .... So I placed them in a bin with some cotton batting. I  mean what else is there to do with batting scraps?

Aren't they cute?


I left them outside for the night in the hopes that their mother would show up. Sadly, by Monday morning, they were still in the bin. Their mother hadn't shown up to claim them.

I found this great website that helped me take proper care of these critter. Please, before you do anything, always do some research. There are lots of valuable information on the web.

I ended up taking them to the Adirondack Wildlife Refugee where Ethan, the coon expert, greeted me.  He will be working to rehabilitate them and they will be released in their natural habitat when old enough.

If you have never visited the Adirondack Wildlife Refugee, I would highly recommend it.  AND if you can, please add them to your annual charity budget list. Their work on rehabilitating wild animals is strictly funded by private donations.

Bye, Bye little raccoons!


Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace! Cheers!

Oh How Fun!!! I might not have been able to take them to the shelter LOL. Very sad that their mama didn't show up though- I hope something didn't happen to her. :-(
