Ripples Wildlife: Raccoon Babies!

What’s more adorable than a baby raccoon trying to go up the stairs? A BUNCH of baby raccoons!

Raccoon babies can handle stairs quickly, but sometimes they trip and tumble.

Waffles getting into my neighbor’s cat food. We could clearly see that she was nursing her babies.

The old cat Romeo sits casually nearby while Waffles takes a drink of water from his bowl.

Rapidly waddling raccoon baby butts with ringed tails is the best way to wake up in the morning 🙂 Waffles is the taller one in the middle right.

Baby raccoons scavenging for food in the leaves. A group of raccoons is called a “gaze,” and I could gaze at them all day!

I love Raccoons!! 🙂


Me too! The babies were super cute when they were younger, but now they are bigger and able to be captured in pictures during the daylight hours.


I did like racoons untill they started eating my chickens and ducks! Don’t plan on getting any chickens at that place untill you relocate the racoons,otherwise they will think you are providing dinner every night.


Haha, no worries about chickens and ducks – we don’t own the place where we are living, just renting the basement. Eventually we’ll buy land and make it a wildlife sanctuary! Can’t wait! 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
