Having a raccoon loose in your house is a hellish nightmare for most people, but not for Rosie Kemp and her daughter Laura Young. Last year, the two found a little furry surprise in their back yard: a one-month-old raccoon they named Pumpkin.

Much like a Disney princess, Pumpkin was abandoned by her mother and very weak. Kemp and Young took her in and raised her as one of their own. Luckily, she lived in Nassau, in the Bahamas, where it's freakin' legal to own a raccoon, aka PARADISE!
