Raccoon Decides He Should Be More Helpful Around The House
You can call them many names, masked bandit, trash panda, coon or rascal tail. We see them all the time, especially if you live in the smaller cities across the States, where you basically keep your trash cans in your front yard, practically calling the sneaky raccoon out for a dinner party. They are super resourceful and once they learn that a certain household likes to toss out their leftovers, you can bet that a raccoon or several of them will because your frequent, if not permanent, guests!
Still, raccoons can be excellent pets. Sure, they can be a little mischievous and can be quite the handful to keep, but that does not stop some people. Not all states allow them, while those who do usually have breeders that can provide you with one such unique companion.
They can be dirty and make all sorts of messes in your home, but if raised proper, even a raccoon can learn to be helpful around the house. Like this guy did and he is doing a fantastic job!
Meeko the pet raccoon loves to play in water. Watch it attempt to help wash those dirty dishes! Hilarious!
Of course, we are joking about the helping-around-the-home part. Raccoons are known for their love of water; you can see them “washing” their food before eating it. But what we see as “washing”, means something completely different for these critters. In a nutshell, water helps raccoons understand whether the thing in their paws is edible or not. That is really fascinating.
