    In October 2014, when Pumpkin was just 1 month old, she fell out of a tree in Rosie Kemp's backyard.

    The little raccoon was very weak and had a broken hind leg. It soon became clear to the Nassau, Bahamas resident that the little animal's mother wasn't coming back for it. The nearby Bahamas Humane Society was unable to take in an orphaned raccoon, so Rosie Kemp and her daughter, Laura Young, took in the little raccoon themselves. With the guidance of friends who had experience with raccoons, the family cared for her and named her Pumpkin.

    A month later, Pumpkin moved in with Laura Young and her husband, William. There, she formed an immediate and "aww"-inspiring connection with the couple's two rescue dogs, Toffee and Oreo.

    Amazingly, Pumpkin has even learned how to use the family's toilet to go to the bathroom... though this picture is really no indication.

    There are some human foods that Pumpkin eats in a rather civilized way.
