Nope..they are NOT kittens!



So I hear my hubby's toys..I mean collectibles going bonkers in our bedrooom closet. What the heck is going on in there I thought! Not thinking anything to odd would be happening I open the door and see a MAMA RACCOON!

Okaaayyy. SO, I shut the door and call hubby into the bedroom. Honey open the closet and tell me what you see...he opens the door..and says....

OH CRAP who had KITTENS in here..LOL! I said honey..they are NOT kittens they are raccoons..and there are three of them with a mama. BE CAREFUL! Mama must have decided to take a wee break at that time because she was not in there when hubby opened the door....but she is back taking care of her babies now.

So being a wildlife rehabilitator(not practicing now) I decided to let her stay for a bit. I mean she DID just give birth. However in a few days I will place a radio in front of the closet door and she will move them. Who wants a noisy nusery ..ya know;)

Good thing she cannot get out of that closet or that we need to use it on a daily basis(it's our storage closet). Lorna of course is UBER EXCITED! Even is she is not allowed to pet and play with them she still understands and thinks it is SO COOL! I do too:)

Oh Wow! I hate to say it, but the racoon is sooo cute!

a couple of years ago, I didn't find an actual animal, but I did find his stash of chestnuts (from a tree in my yard) next to my water-heater. There were at least 60 chestnuts in a huge mound. Unfortunately, I had to get rid of all of his hard work...

Such a gift to have seen that, sweet pictures, looks like mama and babies picked the right place to be for a few days at least. :)
