Here are a few more of Loraine's pets. The rooster we call Mr. Bossy... because he is! Mr. Bossy rules! Then there's Bandit and Ringo... Zorro wouldn't sit still long enough for his photo. I MUST SAY THAT RACCOONS ARE WILD ANIMALS AND YOU SHOULD NOT KEEP THEM AS PETS!
Ringo and Zorro came to live with Loraine when their Mom was killed.
They were bottle feed just like a baby. Bandit and her brother Sly were
found in their field, we don't know what happened to their Mom. Bandit
gave birth to 5 babies this Spring! Bandit was released after the babies
were only a few weeks old, as raccoons are wild animals by nature, they
should be able to run the woods. They are all doing fine and stop by now
and then to visit.
Ringo and Zorro however... they are not used to being in the wild. They
were released... but they returned to us when a few other raccoons decided
to "let them know who was boss!" Zorro hide under a blanket crying,
while Ringo crouched on a near by railing. Because they never knew the
wild as Bandit and Sly did, it will take awhile for them to get used to
the Kingdom of the Woods!
Loraine and her Family live in the County...
right in the middle of 13 acres of Woods.
Now you Know where Loraine gets alot of her ideas
for the animals in her storybooks!
