I see a dipstick tail. :)

We hand-raised a bebe sqwerl (from about a day old) a few years back and had to use a doll bottle...

astonishingly delightful, can you imagine the tiny little gurbling sounds it makes?!!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 02:13 PM

After finding a baby squirrel on the ground that had fallen out of tree in my front yard.. with my friend Cherry we took the baby to a local wildlife reserve.. one of the workers at Lichterman Nature Center said the little squirrel had to be stimulated to p like thier mothers do it.. or the infants will perish without this help.. I don't know what they did for a surrogate mother but the small squirrel did fine after a few months and they let it live on the compound there..yerpal MTM

Why hast thou forsaken me?

 |  May 15, 2006 at 02:32 PM

oh my, so fuzzy and tiny, he looks more like a color-point kitten than a baby raccoon!! He has a lot of hard work ahead of him if he's going to grow his stripes and bushy tail.

That's not a raccoon, it's a raccootini.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 02:35 PM


 |  May 15, 2006 at 02:39 PM

Good lord, how can you even TELL it's a racoon? Yowza.
At the Wildlife Rehab Center (St. Paul), we use syringes to feed the bebe squirrels, and syringes with special rubber tips to feed the bunnies.
Hope this lil' fella (gal?) makes it all right!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 02:44 PM

Ooooooooo! Needs a teeny tiny garbage pail to knock over.

"Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room
only to find Gideon's bottle."

 |  May 15, 2006 at 02:50 PM

cute until it sinks it's teeth into the hand that feeds it. coons are nasty disease ridden beasts.

He looks like a tiny monkey ;-)

Tail, button nose, and those splayed toes, oh my!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 03:33 PM

Wow, I had no idea that raccoons were born ringless. Cute!

I'll bet those claws can do some damage, tho.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 04:19 PM

Oh tiny little baby coon
You're hardly larger than a spoon
And yet we know that all-too soon,
You'll be cavorting 'neath the moon
Despite three pairs of hurtled shoon
My garbage can's in wrack and ruin.

/my apologies.
//bad but fun!

it looks so cute!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 04:33 PM

My, that is a funny-looking creature! Cute, but I'm slightly scared of the claws!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 04:35 PM

Gosh - rabbit kits and puppies and kittens and goodness only knows what all else have little teeny nails...

A thinker, I like...! ("Hurtled shoon" and all.)

:-D it's such a wonderful plural, isn't it.

A thinker
 |  May 15, 2006 at 04:52 PM

...because what the world needs? Is more racoons. Right.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 05:08 PM

oops, I meant raccoons. Two c's.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 05:09 PM

Bravo on the poem, A thinker!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 05:12 PM

Wow...he's so pathetic. It's hard to believe that in another year someone will be taking pot shots at him, while he scampers away from the garbage. Awwww...let's enjoy him while we can.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 05:38 PM

Awwww! A baby Cling-on!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 05:57 PM

"chiefly dialect plural of SHOE"
ahhh... I get it now. Shoon. Shweet!

":-D it's such a wonderful plural, isn't it."

You betcha!

Wow - something *very* strange just happened. My 1st attempt at posting the comment above was hijacked - not once, but twice - by another Typepad blog called Bluegrass Roots.

Not only that, it was trying to post a comment that I hadn't written.

Weird, very weird.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 07:28 PM

I blame the pigbilly from the previous post.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 07:31 PM

*neer neer neer neer*

Twilight Zone theme.

Weird indeed!

LOL Theo! I bet you're right.

There's something missing from that pic, but I can't put my finger on it.


oh! Yeah, I know. It's 1.5 inch-long fuchsia shimmer gel nails.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 07:44 PM

"Weird indeed!"

Not only that, "my" comment was not in standard English. It was something along the lines of, "I think you do good music."

E. Collison
 |  May 15, 2006 at 07:47 PM

Well, you *are* the music critic, right?

 |  May 15, 2006 at 07:49 PM

It's one of several hats I wear - though none of them look like the GP's. ;)

 |  May 15, 2006 at 07:52 PM

LOL, E.C. Gosh, I'm going to sleep well tonight just from the CO comment humour.

May herds of diary KoWz serenade you to sleep. (And no, there's no typo here.)

Meeeew! (Mocking KoW tone.) ;)

The only thing I want is for him to open his beedy eyes.

 |  May 15, 2006 at 09:51 PM

aaw. I didn't know they came "self-coloured"...
keep him (her?) warm, step mommy!

 |  May 15, 2006 at 10:11 PM

Eeek that's a cutie!
