I have a brief anecdote to share with you guys. Last year, in May, Blue Bear and I were in my backyard throwing a ball around. From the corner of my eye, I spotted a raccoon climbing one of the wooden poles holding up the electrical wires in the neighbouring backyard. He saw us, and we saw him. He froze in place, worried that we would hurt him. To add to his worries, the pole to which he clung for dear life was not the sturdiest. Knowing that if we stayed where we were and continued playing, he would be frightened and remain on the pole, we put our ball down and slowly went back into the house. From the window, we spotted him thankfully climbing down the wooden pole to safety. This little raccoon encounter was very goofy. We couldn’t but pity the poor raccoon who was scared of us, even though we would never hurt him.
This raccoon picture reminds me of the little critter we saw that day. He was definitely just as cute as this guy!
