Sweet Raccoon Loves Getting Belly Rubs

When we think of raccoons, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

I used to think little masked bandits that come wreck havoc in your backyard in the middle of the night, but I’m happy to report that TikTok has changed my mind.

Now, I kind of want a pet raccoon because they look so cute! With some of the antics they get up to, they look like they’re such fun loving little creatures.

One woman shared a video of herself scratching her raccoon and it’s definitely a very wholesome little clip.

Just watching the video, there is no doubt that this raccoon is living his best life with the woman. In it, she’s giving him belly scratches, and he’s just sprawled out on the ground, a little grin on his face.

He’s got his arms up over his head and you can see his little raccoon hands just waving around…it’s cuteness overload.

While racoons should generally live out their days in nature, we’re glad to see this guy is living his best life anyway.

Check out the insanely adorable video in the TikTok below:
