NASSAU, Bahamas — An orphaned raccoon is winning hearts all over the Internet with her Instagram account. The account, called “Pumpkin The Raccoon,” shows her living life just like a dog alongside her canine siblings. After falling from a tree and breaking her leg last fall, Pumpkin was rescued by a woman named Rosie Kemp when she was just 1 month old. Upon discovering the little baby, Rosie and her daughter Laura waited to see if the mother would show up while nursing Pumpkin back to health. But when the mother never showed, Laura decided to continue to raise the little raccoon at her home with her husband William and their two dogs Toffee and Oreo.

Fast forward a year later, Pumpkin is now officially a part of the Kemp family and she truly believes that she is a dog just like Toffee and Oreo. Although Laura admits that raising Pumpkin has been a lot of work, as raccoons are very intelligent and aware, it’s been worth it.
Despite being a wild animal, Pumpkin is well adjusted to life within a house and she enjoys the luxuries that come along with being a domesticated pet. Pumpkin loves air conditioning, eating watermelon and eggs, and she even knows how to use the toilet.
