Nikki Robbinson had found this adorable raccoon by a roadside 3 years before and she had helped him out. Though she had taken the raccoon over to several vets there had not been much help. Therefore she had decided to give the raccoon to her mom Linda who had experiences with raccoons. Though she had not initially agreed, finally she had said that she would take the raccoon and they had given him the name Little Hands.
They had fed the fellow and given him all the love he wanted and at last, they had released him to the wild. And this little fellow had started to give them visits from time to time, they had been surprised with this as none of the animals they took care of came back to see them.
#1 When Nikki found Little Hands he had been about 4 weeks old
To Bored Panda, Nikki had shared about how and what really happened. She had said that she found him by the roadside abandoned. And she had taken him to several wildlife rehabilitation centers but all had been full and they had said to take him to a vet and to euthanize him.
#2 As there were no space in the rehab centers they had asked to take him to a vet and euthanize him
#3 Nikki had given him to her mother Linda
And rather than taking him to be euthanized, she had given the raccoon to her mom, Linda who had handled raccoons earlier and let them go to the wild. As Nikki had said at first Linda had not agreed but after finally had said okay. And after taking care of him she had released it to her big property and had let him come and go as he wants. And had said that Little Hands would come at night for food that Linda leaves for him. And had said that there are times that he’s not seen for a long time but then he comes and lets them get close to him. Nikki had said that Little Hands loves to get love from them and of course food.
#4 Nikki’s mom had loved the little raccoon a lot and taken good care of him
#5 He had been in need of a lot of care
She had said that when they found him, he had been very weak. Little Hands had been with them for about 2 ½ months before going into the wild. As she had said the raccoon had been a very lovable and a clam animal. She had said that they had been very happy when he came to visit them. And had said that they had worked with about 15 raccoons for more than 5 years and that they like to have a wildlife rehab center for their own.
#8 When he was well grown and healthy they had let him go
#10 Little Hands had visited them again surprising them
She had said that though some of the animals they have rescued come to eat food or along with their babies, they wouldn’t approach them. But Little Hands is different. She thinks that maybe he feels there at home and returns back. Also had said that looking after them is fine but letting them go is hard.
#12 None of the earlier raccoons they’ve looked after had come back
About Nikki, she had said that she loves animals had been in the veterinary field for some time, and is educated about that. Also had said that she’s wasn’t working or helping them out she would be taking photographs of them. And had said that one day she would love to find the money for their center by selling the pictures that she would take.
