Zorro (Raccoon)

Zorro is an 8 year old raccoon. We got her as a baby after her mother had been hit by a car.

When we had her in the house she loved to take a bath in the bath tub and then she would curl up alongside the dog and they would take a nap together.

We had to let her go to the wild when she got 2 years old. She now comes to the door for food. Every spring she brings her new litter of babies up on the deck and we feed them loaves of bread. If I do not get it out before they come in, they come and knock at the door.

What an awesome story. I feed a lot of critters too & they are all special.
Good for you for knowing enough about the wild critters to do the right thing. Really amazing.

She loves grapes but really likes peanut butter on bread...At times we have 3 or 4 litters of babies on the deck at the same time...About 16-20 raccoons...I have fed up to 6 loaves of bread a night...They are really soft and sweet animals but can get nasty too....Love them....Thanks

Hi Barbara,

It's to nice to read or hear a story like yours. Treating animals as if they have feelings the same
as humans do is about the best trait a good human

can have. Man has made it so impossible for the
wild creatures to live a peaceful life, so it's very
necessary that the creatures get help from the kindness of friends like you. I believe it's the highest level a human can reach for there is no reward for doing so other than the joy it brings you in doing it and sharing a small bit of those creatures' lives. They never forget us, I'm sure.

For a real treat, try giving them minature marshmallows one night. Our colony of wild raccoons
adore them, and they look so cute as they stuff
their little jaws full. Keep a camera handy.
Possums also like marshmallows, but they are so very greedy. :)

Have a great day,
Julia in Orlando, FL

It was touching to hear of the loyalty you share- your loyatly for continuing to care for her and and Zorro's, who is now back in the wild but continues to consider you the 'grandparent.' What a sweet story! Thanks for sharing it with us.
