They would surely start feeling entitled to doing everything a human does, like opening cardboard boxes and taking the food, messing with possessions as if they were their own, and generally wandering around the house as if they are the bosses. There are those, who claim that washing grapes you are going to see next are certainly not a conscious decision. The raccoons do this in any water source regardless of the presence of food.
The main reasons are obvious, but some of the raccoons prefer to do it in their homes rather than in the wild because it gives them an opportunity to ensure the taste of the food and make the dinner perfect. The fellow below is the embodiment of adorable. He knows that everybody is waiting for him to look into the camera, and yet he takes his time to wash the grapes and clean the fruit that he sees right in front of him.
The owner says that this is not the first time his pet performs the same ritual, so he decided to record it on camera and share it with the viewers. You will be laughing out loud when you see the scene, and though there are many stereotypes that involve referring to the raccoons as creatures that do not care about personal hygiene and cleanliness, we beg to disagree.
They are definitely one of the tidiest animals around, and since some of the viewers have already experienced an encounter with the fluffy fellows, they know what they are talking about. Check out the tape and prepare to be smitten. You will be smiling for hours once you watch the little one, washing the grapes. He is a cutie pie!
