That is SO cool!!!
Getting the change to rescue and release wildlife is great, and just getting close to them!
I've helped raise a squirrel before, which was fun. And what's cool is i've been able to pet and hold a baby bear before too when visiting a zoo.
My comment on this thread:
I have a cat too, she is a mixed breed, but I know she has maine coon in her. I don't have a picture available at the moment, but she is a pretty white fluffly cat with brown and black (or dark brown) patches, some of them are shaped in hearts, which I find cool.
