Love those raccoons! Happy weekend Lexa.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That will soon be one happy trash panda.

JeffO said...

I remember seeing one of those Disney films as a kid where the raccoons trashed a cabin. They were so cute and cuddly and it was so funny! Then I lived in an area where raccoons were constantly in the dumpster if you forgot to close the lid, where they would come in the building and scatter garbage if you forgot to close a door (or would even pry the door open if they could), and would even go in your car if you left the windows open at night. Not so cute and cuddly and funny anymore. Still fun in memes, though!

Cathy Keaton said...

Trash panda! That's completely brilliant. They really do love trash A LOT. And cat food.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

LOL But I love the way Rocket looks!

The Cynical Sailor said...

My favorite is the trash panda :-) Raccoons are always good for a smile. Have a wonderful weekend!

Erika Beebe said...

Hilarious! Thank you for the laugh. Have a great weekend :)

Birgit said...

I love these and thanks for the smile:) the first one looks like such a young raccoon who just wants to play:) when I was young a neighbour found a tiny raccoon and raised it. I loved that raccoon

Natalie Aguirre said...

Fun pictures. Hope you have a good week.

Patricia Lynne said...

OMG The Rocket and beauty standards one made me laugh my ass off. XD

messymimi said...

Great raccoon pics, i will smile all day over those. Happy Friday!

Andrew Leon said...

It's not a raccoon, but I saw a skunk squaring off with a cat last night.

Donna B. McNicol said...

Trash pandas!! (loved Guardians of the Galaxy)

Sharon Marie Himsl said...

They sure can get into mischief! Scared the life out of our poor cat. Got into her food in the garage, made a huge mess.

Kate Larkindale said...

We don't have raccoons here, but I remember them getting into the trash when I was a kid. What a mess!

Deanie Humphrys-Dunne said...

The pictures are so cute, Lexa. Thanks for sharing them. I"m sure they brightened everyone's day. Have a great weekend.

Sue Bursztynski said...

Many years ago, in Blake's 7 fandom, raccoons were associated with a character called Vila, who was a brilliant, skilled thief who could open anything. The reason, apparently, was because raccoons are natural thieves. The actor's fan club even sponsored a zoo raccoon!

The Wizardry Of Jewish Women - The New Edition

Rhonda Albom said...

LOL - There are no racoons in New Zealand. I remember seeing one in Canada last year, and I thought it was adorable. Of course, when we lived in the states and a racoon killed our chickens, I didn't find them so cute. Today, your humour I like them again.

Stephen Hayes said...

Raccoons are cute, except for that time they ate all the fish in my outdoor pond and refused to leave even when I threatened them with a shovel.

PlanetKimberly said...

Those are "wild" raccoon photos! Pun semi-intended.

Have a great weekend, Lexa!

Heather R. Holden said...

LOL, those raccoons are so precious. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Ha, ha. Thanks for starting my day with a laugh. Fun pictures.

Have a great weekend.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

That last pic of him sitting on his butt... my cat Marbles sleeps in that exact position. LOL. Kills me.

Tamara Narayan said...

Raccoons are too, too cute. Love the gifs, especially the trash panda and the final one. I read Moncrieff's City of Ghosts and loved it.

Robert Bennett said...

I love coons! Except for right now. Right now I'm mad at them. Right now they decided to eat my Spinach plants. Because? I mean, what the hell guys? I literally have tomatoes to the left and squash to the right and you eat my goddamn spinach.

I mean...what?

T. Drecker said...

Love the raccoons!

cleemckenzie said...

Those raccoons are adorable, but they cause no end of mischief around here. We have to padlock things. They are the cleverest at picking simple locks. Hope you had a great weekend. I'm back on the job. Welcome Monday.

Jay Noel said...

Raccoons are cute. But in person, they scare me!

dolorah said...

Adorable, lol.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Fun and very CUTE pics!


Hope you had a great weekend!

L.G. Keltner said...

I love the raccoons! So adorable and full of mischief! A lot like my kids, actually.

Crystal Collier said...

LOL! Thanks for the chuckle. Those were a ton of fun.

Kim Lajevardi said...

I love the raccoons! I hope are busy for all the best reasons. :)
