Open Post: Hosted By Shredder, The Water-Loving Rescue Raccoon

November 25, 2020 / Posted by:

Meet Shredder, the pet rescue raccoon who both loooves water and refuses to believe that it’s a liquid, not a solid. In a recent video posted by his human, Shredder uses his cute little paws and teeny tiny mouth in a futile attempt to catch the water coming out of a garden hose. Awwww, da baby is confuse-ed!

Here’s the video:

The video reminds me of that one where a raccoon keeps losing their cotton candy when they try to wash it in water:

That raccoon needs to embrace that aqua life like his cousin Shredder. And there’s even more videos of Shredder enjoying the wet stuff. In this one he celebrates a recent flood:

Here he is enjoying a nice, refreshing bath:

In this one, he shows off what happens when raccoons are blessed with the wet zoomies:

After watching these vids I want my very own rescue raccoon! Then I remember the little dude that tried to bite me when I stupidly tried to pet him on a very intoxicated walk home. And I am humbled. The cat shall do for now.
