Our Little Friend

About five weeks ago, we had a guest pop up in the back yard. It was around 7pm in the evening and he started patrolling the back yard for food.

We have four bird feeder set up and he found and emptied everyone.

In an attempt to get him to quit eating the bird seed.....I put out some cat food.

Now, he lives in our back yard and is pretty much losing all fear of us. He'll still run up a tree if we come out, but if I call him -he'll come down and get some food.

It probably wasn't a good idea to start feeding him, but he's so cute! We have since named him Prince Seymour and, well, I'm just not quite sure what to do with him. Thoughts?

Shalom, Spring M Fricks


  1. He is a cutie! I know a lot of extermination places will humanely capture and release away from neighborhoods - if he turns on you or your family someday, he can be quite dangerous!

  2. I love your blog! I desire to know more about the culture and background of Christ Jesus. I currently read material from "Jews for Jesus" to get an understanding of Judaism. I would enjoy having a tutor though. :) So nice to "meet" you. And I look forward to reading more of your posts!

    Kindest regards,

  3. Contact a local zoo and see if they have a place for him. Audra is right in that raccoons can be very dangerous. At the very least you might get some good advice or direction. He sure is cute.

  4. I agree with the other ladies...he is adorable, but racoons are WILD, and they can be super mean, no matter how tame they may seem at the time.

    Hey, I can't get your blog button to work...I just get the logo, but it doesn't link to your blog. Is it supposed to?

  5. Found several babies one cute...mother was killed. Took them to the humane society for a person who takes wild animals and releases them back into the wild. I'm so jealous over my feeders...I love my birds, so I put red pepper flakes and cayenne in with the seed. It is like Vitamin C to the birds, but a deterrent to wild animals!
    Shalu Shalom Yerushalayim!
