"I recieved two baby raccoons b/c the mom was trapped and relocated and the people had no idea that the raccoon had babies in their attic. Swindle and Sway are their names. I wresteled with how I was going to release them after tons of studying because I was bonded to them. When they were old enough they would follow me around the back yard and swim in our pool. I sat under trees for many hours while they played. We let them out more and more until they chose they wanted to stay outside and we filled a bowl of food and water for them. Both became pregnant and they still came home for food and treats. Swindle still comes inside the house to say hello to the dogs and would bring her baby with her. Swindle imprinted on me and I had thought that I would never be able to release her but the slow release proved to me that raccoons instincts are strong. From a young age they dug in the ground for food. Sway is wild to the point I would no longer attempt to pick her up but Swindle chooses to climb in my lap and eat a cookie still and when she sees me in the yard at night and she's out in a tree somewhere she always comes to say hi to her mom! My husband and I are rabies vaccinated and know well that raccoons are unpredictable so we are cautious. However we have a special bond with our raccoons who are almost two now. We love them."
