I have a bunch of fish and three cats, but my baby is a 17 week old American bulldog mix named Nami. This is her. :)

MC, you and Tetley make a very happy looking couple. Thanks for sharing that picture.

xshainax, Nami is cute, but it looks like she is a real "singer".

Actually, they're looking for food. Mama and all the younger kits would eat from my hand. I didn't trust Shy too much, as she was half grown when I got to know her and hadn't been taught not to bite down on fingers. It's far easier to teach the kits not to bite down if they are still nursing.

It's no doubt how adorable they look but I have another story about two of the varmints in my yard spending their honeymoon shortly after I was widowed and living alone.

I lived smack in the middle of a neighborhood, and our entire yard, both front and back was surrounded by a six foot block wall fence. There was a courtyard inside the front doors with a large spa. I noticed some odd shaped animal tracks around the edge of the spa. That night all hell broke loose with their spa party. The next morning they were having Mimosa's in my orange tree, and breaking branches in my huge patio tree doing their thing! They were both huge, much bigger than the ones pictured.That went on for days. They scared the heck out of me being newly alone and I was sure glad when they left before the babies came.
I think they have to learn aggression from their parents. I adopted a stray cat for a while and he'd jump right into the middle of the raccoons. The kits would scatter, but their mothers would just ignore the cat.

Now in Seattle, the raccoons there are really fierce. They're really a problem on that side of the water because they're always so hungry. They pack up in groups of 20 or more and have been known to attack cats, small dogs, and people. I'd be afraid of the raccoons over there.

I love seeing the pictures of the animals here! Tetley looks like a big horse. How many hands is he?

Dang, I'm such a sap. A HS friend had to put her 17 year old cat down due to cancer. I can't stop crying, even though I've never even met the cat.
