This blind raccoon made friends with a pair of feral kittens, and they became his “bodyguards”.
A blind raccoon is not something that you usually see. In the wild, that kind if disability can make you very dead very fast. But this particular blind raccoon had two things on his side: a family who likes raccoons enough to feed them, and a pair of kitties that became his bodyguards.
We know a lot about this raccoon from the video’s description on YouTube. The camera-girl, named Eryn, reveals that the raccoon was at least 5 years old based on how long he’s been coming to her house. He’s also at least partially blind since, as you can see in the video, he sort of waddles around slowly and aimlessly.
"His eyes shine bright green during the day. He is at least partially blind. He walks into things. He is afraid of the wind, high grass, birds, and snow," Eryn said.
Eryn goes on to say he usually arrives in the morning and gets fed soft pasta noodles in cream of chicken soup. If that gourmet menu isn’t enough, he also gets the occasional sliced hot dog or bits of various meats.

Then, at some point during the raccoon's residence, a pair of black kittens showed up and started following him around. They were feral cats, but they took a shine to the raccoon and started acting as his guides, almost like a pair of black, furry, bodyguards. Watch him trundle around and see how the cats guide him back to the wild from Eryn’s porch.
Sadly, the blind raccoon died sometime in June of 2015. Afterward, Eryn decided to take the twin feral cats in from the cold and make them her own. "I tamed the wild kittens (that was painful) and WAS going to send them to PAWS Chicago but after putting in all of that effort, loss of flesh and blood we kept them! And they now live inside with our HUGE other cat Squirt".
We think that this trio is absolutely adorable, and only wish that we could have enjoyed this cuteness sooner!
