Meanwhile In Russia: A Pet Raccoon Trying To Catch Rain Out The Window Of A Speeding Car

October 12, 2017


This is a short and sweet video of Eva the raccoon trying to catch all the raindrops she can while sticking her head and arms out the window of a speeding car in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It's pretty fantastic. Now, is it just me or does it seem like pet raccoons are all the rage in Russia? I see them on Instagram all the time. As a matter of fact, they're ALL I see on Instagram. Presumably because I only follow twelve accounts, and eleven of them are pet raccoons in Russia (the other is Pumpkin, but she lives in in the Bahamas and thinks she's a dog). Obviously, I take social media very seriously. "How many followers do you have?" Just my other three accounts.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Julia, who agrees it's the little things in life. But also, the big things. And the middle things make a nice median.

    I think it's amazing when it grabs the air and tries to shove it in its mouth like some airy treat because I still do that.
    This gif is unrelated but I dare you to watch it:

    I hear your racoons last longer if you water them.

    No wait...maybe that's about feeding them?

    You want rabies? Because this is how you get rabies!

    On a related note I bet raccoons make pretty cool pets right up until they try to kill you. They're frighteningly smart and have thumbs.

    Dumnass? Is that how you spell that?
