We had a bit of excitement at the day job last week. One of my coworkers is obviously part bat. She was parked along the side of the road when she heard a high-pitched mewling. After a swift investigation, she found two baby raccoons lying in the roadway. Her motherly instincts kicked in after discovering one of the little ones had been injured. After waiting to see if Mama Raccoon would return and waving away on-coming cars, she rescued the babies from impending doom.
Guess who ended up coming to work.
Aren’t they adorable?
The cubicles shook from the excitement. Coworkers gathered around the freezer bag the babies were packed in, taking pictures and videos to share.
The baby on top kept trying to climb out of the bag. She had the saddest, little eyes and kept crying for her mama. I wanted to cuddle them so bad, but I kept my paws to myself. If you listen closely, you can hear their cries on the video.
The babies are now at the Barry Kirshner Wildlife Sanctuary and
