One Hot Mama.....Raccoon.

It is so hot here.  Saturday it was 104 in the shade.  Our resident raccoon family is suffering in the heat as are all the creatures.  But this one has found a way to cool off--in the birdbath.  Every afternoon she climbs into the birdbath and lays down, drooping her legs over the edges and fully immersing her belly.  She is very familiar with me and doesn't move unless I get too close.  I can just imagine her looking forward to a cool afternoon at the pool.  She will eventually come out of the birdbath, climb up a tree, drape herself over a branch, and drip dry.

Poor baby. We forget that animals suffer in these conditions too.
