Once again, Raccoons gather.
We’re always so happy when our little furballs return in the Spring. I’m posting this in Feb ’23 and I recorded it in Mar ’22, just shy of a year ago.
Usually they come out of winter a tad leaner than these stout ladies here.
Leaner and often after a bit of raccoon loving, their bodies not yet swelling with kits waiting to be born.
We watch them bulk, make sure they have protein and fats, a good mix, so their teats will be full to nurse their young.
And then, a month or two later, kits!
But for now, a glorious grouping of garrulous girls.
