Missing Baby

Here is the skiddish little baby who got himself separated from mom. He spent the day in our garage, while our nerves were on edge hoping that mom would come back for him. What would we do if she didn't come?? Thankfully we didn't have to answer that question.

When the sun went down, mom was the first raccoon of the night to come into the yard. She was a little leary of the carrier, but when she got close enough, the baby saw her and ran out towards her. They were so happy to see each other, they started kissing and grooming... They stayed in the yard for about 20 minutes, eating and drinking together. Baby learned his lesson and didn't get more than 6 inches away from mom. A few hours later the whole family came back for snacks, just like nothing ever happened. I wonder if his mom was as stressed out as we were?!
