Sorry about the lack of updates, me and Michelle have been laid out with gastroenteritis (probably Norvovirus) for the last few days.

Here's a quick photo I've just taken of Meeka having a munch on my daughters fingers, She's teething now and loves to suck fingers, noses, earlobes and anything else she can get hold of.

Hopefully I will get on and get some decent updates done soon (and get a new camera to improve on the quality of my phone pictures).

Thankfully the cough has died down now, she's doing fantastic.

Hopefully I'll get a new video on You Tube in the next few days - I'd like to get a vid of her having a bath, she absolutely loves it.

Meeka has developed a small cough, we think she may have inhaled some milk whilst feeding (she rushes it down in the mornings).

We took her to the vets, just to be on the safe side, and they gave us 3 syringes of antibiotic to ensure that no infection sets in... Hopefully she'll be fine, she's ok in herself, but we are a little worried about this cough.

I'll keep this page updated in the next few days.

As you can see by the photo, she's still really tiny, but growing by the day.

Meeka is coming along in leaps and bounds, her eyes and ears are now fully open, and she is a lot more steady on her feet.

She is constantly hungry, taking 15/20ml of Whelpi puppy replacement milks every 2 to 3 hours (although she is getting better at sleeping at night now).

Its getting to be a nightmare picking her up close to feeding time, as when you cuddle her she decides to try to eat your face - she'll suck your bottom lip right in, and start paddling cheeks like a young cat... I can see we are going to have some fun in front of us.


(more photos to come soon)

Welcome to Meeka's space on the net.

Meeka is our Pet Raccoon, she arrived on the 6th of May when she was was only two weeks old.

Her mothers milk had dried up, so we agreed to take her on to hand rear her, and she is now a member of our family.

I have set up this blog to post photos and videos of our baby as she grows up.

Hopefully there will be another post soon, and some more videos... I just need to convince my missus to invest in a digital video camera, rather than using my mobile...
