Rumble / Funny & Cute AnimalsWe have all heard of a dog doing adorable things to get their owners attention, but watch as this adorable rescued baby raccoon climbs his new owners leg just to get her attention.

This adorable baby named Elliott is a six week old raccoon rescue that always loves to be played with and cuddled. This heartwarming video shows the two playing in the barn and the raccoon climbing up her leg like it was a tree! 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 farm 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. The raccoon shares a special bond with his new owners and doesn't like to be away from them. This video shows how close they are!

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.

Raccoons are mischievous creatures by nature, spending most of their time scavenging, playing and generally creating havoc wherever they go. They have sharp claws and sharp teeth and are completely unpredictable. Raccoons are not good with other animals such as dogs and cats. They may seem fine and relaxed one minute and completely out of control and panicky the next. They are still wild animals, and should always be treated like ones.

In this video we witness the adorable moment when a playful raccoon climbs up owner’s leg. However, its abilities are limited and should it find itself in a danger, it can’t just save itself like Spiderman does. We don’t have any idea what this raccoon had in mind before endeavoring such an attempt. Maybe this raccoon was hungry, so it smelled something delicious in owner’s hand and it decided to come up and check it out. How adorable!

Raccoons have sharp claws and sharp teeth, that is a fact. Moreover, their skills can best be described by watching this other video of a reckless raccoon climbing at the top of a high building. It has quickly climbed to a certain height and the next thing it does, it has the wall in its grips knowing that it is ready to fall down. It is running out of options, it can’t move upwards neither can it go back down smoothly. The people gathered in front of the building know that unfortunately, the raccoon has to face a free fall. Whether it is going to stay alive or not, nobody can predict.

It really hurts watching the raccoon fall with such a speed and the moment it slams on the ground makes us cringe. The jump looks painful since the raccoon crashes onto the ground in full force, similar to the movement when we swat an annoying fly on the wall. The first thought that it comes to our minds is that with the fall, the raccoon was badly hurt and that it is in a lot of pain. However, in no time the raccoon manages to pick itself up and runs away without looking back. Luckily, this daredevil got away lightly without a scratch and it was fortunate enough not to end up dead.
