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 Educational Center where they will receive much love and care. Please check out their website for pictures of the rehabilitated animals cared for by this amazing non-profit foundation. Donations are tax deductible.


  1. Aww! Warm and fuzzies! I would have wanted to touch them too!

  2. They are so cute when they are little. Not so cute when they are in your trashcan. LOL!

  3. Ohhhhhh shaaaaaa, bebes! Too cute :) Glad they were taken in by the wildlife rescue :)

    1. Yes, it was a lucky day for the little ones. And for all of the animals helped by the the Barry Kirshner Wildlife Sanctuary.


Now it's your turn. What do you think?
