If there’s anything cuter than a baby raccoon, we’re hard-pressed to think of what it could be -- unless it’s two baby raccoons. Mary Cummins of the L.A.-based wildlife rehabilitation organization Animal Advocates shares this video on her YouTube channel (which, incidentally, is chock-full of adorable baby animals and is well worth a perusal).

Cummins explains that she placed these two in a bathtub while she cleaned their carrier -- well, that was the idea, anyway. ‘I thought I’d put them in the tub for easy cleaning, but unfortunately they can climb out,’ she writes. ‘I had to put them in another clean carrier while I prepared their cage.’
