My love of raccoons began as a child when a neighbor kept one as a pet. We attempted to civilize it but she’d still would bite at times. I’ll never forget the wading pool and how she’d wash all her food in it. This hat is my tribute to my beloved “Racky Kacky”. Here you have 4 different faces which show her differing moods and the sweet paws which were oh so soft and gentle.
