April Means Baby Raccoons

I have been meaning to post these pictures for weeks now. Sorry for the delay!

In April, Steve and I babysat a 5-day-old raccoon one afternoon while his foster parent took the afternoon off.

He was very tiny and stll had his umbilical cord attached. He was very cute, but I think the raccoons we typically care for are cuter. It’s kind of like a newborn versus a 6-month-old. The 6-month-old does things and plays and is very entertaining. The newborn just sleeps a lot.
