a little raccoon name Special

This little guy showed up one Sunday morning on my back steps. He was smaller than you see here and his mother was taking him and his siblings out for their first jaunt. When I first saw him, he was sitting on the bottom step with his pot belly sticking out, back to me and wondering why the other raccoons were so concerned. As I was behind him, they were looking up at me.

He came by daily and would venture way out on a Ficus tree branch until he was swaying right in front of our screened kitchen window, silently staring in at us. We would get some dry pellet dog food or something else and go out and feed him.
