About This Image

Blind Mama Raccoon resting on our front patio wall amongst the daffodils. Couldn't resist getting the camera when she settled there in the sunshine.

She seems to be examining her paw. That is the same front leg that she's hurt recently. When I watched her today, she seemed to be able to use the paw a bit more easily than she was. Hope it will eventually get completely better. I don't know how she can climb with an injured front leg.

Hi Beverly, thanks for viewing and for the nice comments. glad you liked it. She was here again this evening. Still hobbling, but seems to be able to bear weight on the hurt leg.

Jas, meant to remark on this, -- but had forgotten that you'd seen the raccoon family when here the first time. Do recall hearing a commotion on the back "deck" on one of your visits, - seem to recall our dog Sport barking like mad when a raccoon visited the back deck one evening. It all seems like such a long time ago now, doesn't it. So much has happened since.

thankyou all for your nice comments and interest in Mama raccoon, - Alex, Carol, Janice, Jas, Lorraine & Cindy. You asked if she's completely blind, Lorraine, - am not totally sure, but think she's almost completely blind as she bumps into things, and yet at other times I sometimes think she sees slightly. But I think she senses "movement" more than actually being able to see. She was here again today, and seems to be moving a bit more easily, altho she doesn't seem to have much strength in the one front paw.

Very nice to see the Mama raccoon Alandra; she has a very pretty backdrop, sitting in front of your beautiful daffodils. I often think of the little family we saw in your back yard, when we visited the first time! :)

Alandra what a great shot. I love that racoon. I am glad she is able to use the paw a little better.

She looks nice and comfy,I think she has adopted you and is moving right in.

Hi Alandra :) its so nice to find these little updates on blind mama. Often when I see you have posted some new photos, I've wondered how her life is going. She looks to be in great condition here minus a sore little paw. Nice to know she's still about :)
