Many more babies coming in......

This past weekend we had a a lot of raccoons coming in! Laurie was up to at least 7 at last count. She's got a little one about the size of  Tyson together with an equally small Olaf, who came in to Lisa frozen stiff.
Here the numbers have grown to 22 for raccoons. Are you ready for the raccoon rundown?

Tyson and Ali, our smallest ones.
Ricky and Mickey, the first 2 of the year, are together with Lefty and Righty the first 2 from the MSPCA. Every one's eyes are open in this group!
Ricky and Mickey.
Little Ricky....
Righty and both Lefty and Righty below.
The 3 (yet to be named) pest control babies. Eyes are open on 2 of them now!
 Next we have 5 babies left in a bag by the chicken coop at the MSPCA, Nevins. All 5 are doing great...1 girl in the lot!
 Then we have 2 from Revere. They were outside for a couple of nights before a woman was kind enough to bring them in just before the freezing night of rain we had Wednesday. Obviously no mom around. One little runt, at least half their size, sadly did not survive. But these two are doing great! Boy and girl....up to 3 girls out of all these boys!
Last but not least, this gang of 6 rescued from the Boston Winery by the ARL. Also at last.....some estrogen! LOL! 5 girls and 1 boy. The boy resembles Picasso from last year, with white patches under his eyes. Very frightened at first, they have finally adjusted to their new "mom" and are doing awesome! Very cute at this age and starting to play. I guess it goes without saying, it was pretty easy to name this group! Welcome Merlot (the boy), Chardonnay, Pino, Cabernet, Zinfandel, and Riesling.
 Lets not forget the squirrels......many, many squirrels between us all!

......and plenty of bunnies with JoAnn and Laurie.

And throw in a couple of flyer's with Lisa. One of them is a 4 gram pinkie! Good lord, I wouldn't be able to hold something so small with my fat fingers to feed it!

Needless to say, things are in full swing around here....back to little or no sleep, constant feedings of babies and few feeding for ourselves, and no time for anyone or anything else! Ahhhhh, baby season!
