Last year, Nassau, Bahamas resident Rosie Kemp found a baby raccoon that had fallen out of a tree in her yard. The mother was nowhere to be found, so Kemp and her daughter Laura Young decided to adopt the little bandit and named her Pumpkin.
Eventually, Pumpkin recovered from her injuries and moved in with Young and her husband. She instantly bonded with us and our two rescue dogs and follows me and our two dogs everywhere we go,. Young told The Dodo. She now thinks she is a dog.
She is able to play and be rough with them and she respects them when they have had enough.
Raising her is a full-time job.
They are so unbelievably intelligent.
I would say they are even able to express emotions.
