The tender annual tradition between a raccoon and a woman

A woman, through a series of chance encounters and gestures of kindness, has managed to develop an indestructible bond with a wild raccoon, whom she has affectionately named Roxy.

Brittany, the protagonist of this unusual story, has shared with The Dodo how this unique bond surpasses all conventional expectations of relationships between humans and animals: the animal has not only accepted the woman, but has presented her babies year after year. year, consolidating a unique tradition among them.

Brittany has said that the beginning of this unusual friendship occurred when she moved to her new house. From the beginning, she felt the presence of someone watching over her, which was none other than Roxy.

The former owners of the house had already warned Brittany about this raccoon, indicating that it had become accustomed to human presence. Despite general recommendations not to feed wild animals, Brittany decided to make an exception for Roxy because of her human dependence on her. "At first she was skeptical," Brittany recalled, but with patience and time, Roxy began to accept her friendship.

After a while, Brittany noticed that Roxy seemed to be pregnant. Time ended up proving him right. "Guys, a baby has arrived!" Brittany exclaimed as she watched Roxy introduce her to her baby for the first time.

This moment marked the beginning of an annual tradition, in which Roxy visits Brittany to show her her new brood. "Roxy has a litter every year, and at this point it's become a tradition when they visit us," Brittany said. Even Penelope, Roxy's daughter, continued this tradition by presenting her own baby to her last year.

The circle of life has been completed in a very emotional way when Brittany has had the opportunity to present her own baby to Roxy. This experience was especially valuable for Brittany, who trusts Roxy completely. "It's surreal that we're both mothers now, but that makes our friendship even more special," Brittany concluded.
