A few months ago, I had not one, not two, but FOUR baby raccoons stuck in my fireplace in my living room. The poor little guys fell down the chimney and thank goodness I was home at the time so I could barricade the fireplace opening with a piece of wood until a “wildlife expert” showed up to remove the animals.
They were so adorable and I felt so bad for them that I even thought about keeping them for a minute…and then I realized that would be a total disaster so I abandoned that dream…
But I did come to realize that raccoons are very cute, even though they like to eat our trash and some of them are dangerous because they’re infected with rabies. But we can still admire them from afar!
Enjoy these funny and cute photos of raccoons just living their daily lives.
