Ok, so about 4 or 5 days ago we discovered a little raccoon family was using our deck as their playground and eating the cat food, and leaping off our grill generally having the time of their little lives. I wasn't privileged enough to see them until tonight. My mom saw the 4 babies a few times without the mom.
Then today I go down the barn with the dogs and as I'm headed to the house I notice Annie is just staring through the fence to the deck and I see a dead thing on the other side of the fence. After further investigation we realize crap thats a raccoon, so my mom calls and animal rescue they come out and set traps on the deck for the babies since we're 99 percent sure the dead raccoon was the mother.
Long story short the last 3 hours has been spent on raccoon watch, we had 3 traps two babies went in one together, another went in the second trap and fourth baby played hard to get. And when finally went in the trap didn't close so he sat on top of the grill while the animal rescue lady came and then she caught him. There was lots of screaming and drama but now the babies are together and safe and can go life their happy lives.
BUT OMG THEY ARE SO soooooo soo so CUTE!!!!!! I wanted to hug them and keep them FOREVER!
We think their about ten weeks old. All I know is their ADORABLE.
