Rescued baby raccoon waits for owner everyday after work
We have all heard of a dog meeting it's owner at the car after work, or maybe even a cat. But have you ever heard of a six week old baby Raccoon running up the driveway to greet his owner after a long day on the job? This video is just too cute!
Watch as Elliott, the six week old raccoon rescue runs to meet his owner and get cuddles. This adorable reunion happens everyday around five o'clock and it is just the cutest thing we have seen!
This infant raccoon was named Elliott after being found alone and abandoned in the middle of a road in Wainfleet, Ontario, Canada. He was so small, he was only the size of a six week old kitten. When found, Elliott was cold, dirty and scared and the Mother or any of his siblings could be found anywhere. Elliott was an orphan and needed a home and fast.
His rescuers took him to a nearby far to clean him up and give him a hearty meal. He was aloud to run free around the farm and quickly became a part of the family, feeling completely comfortable with everyone that came around.
He shares a special bond with his new owners and doesn't like to be away from them. Everyday, he comes running down the driveway, anxiously awaiting their love and attention.
You can hear someone say "don't run me over" as he runs at her at top notch speeds, coming to welcome his family after work. Elliott became domesticated and very friendly with humans very fast and loved getting attention from whoever was visiting. He is so small and so young, that everyone had to watch where they were going in fear that they would step on him.
Elliott lived on the farm, coming and going as he pleased, for about six months until the winter weather started to come in. One day, he went out and found a place to hibernate and never returned to the farm. It is nice to think that maybe he found his family or started a family of his own.
