  4. I was with my friend running up a hill with thanksgiving items for dinner, and a racoon started to follow us. my friend decided to sit down and gave me the food to keep walking. so i carried the food and tried to walk quickly to get rid of the raccoon. but i couldn’t. and i stopped and started giving the food items to the raccoon to try and get it away. the raccoon took the items and ran into a bush near by. so i closed up the box i was holding, and began to walk again. however, the animal came back, and i knew i couldn’t get it off my trail. so i unloaded all of the things, and the raccoon sat and watched. i took the box, and gently placed some food in it. the raccoon then crawled in and i shut the box. the raccoon started to get angry, so i tried to call protective services. but they wouldn’t pick up. so i took a heavy item and placed it on top to close the box. and i took the rest of the items and started to run. i started to get anxious as i couldn’t hold all of food by myself- and when i reached my family and friends, the raccoon had escaped and was very angry. however my friends had called animal services and they got the racoon under control. and yeh that was my dream. can someone tell me what it means lmao cause i rarely have dreams.

    Just had a dream I was at my childhood home but there was a dumpster in the front yard and the raccoon was digging in the trash throwing it at me. He eventually jumped out and chased me and bit onto my arm and would not let go I kept spinning in circle and he would just bite harder. This dream was very scary and all to real. Then my mom was there and apparently I had not been given the correct vaccinations so I almost died

  8. 4-5 Years ago I was casually dating a guy for a few years and I had a dream he referred to a tactical position he put me In as a ” Wet raccoon scooter” weird yes and so strange I even wrote this dream down. Oddly, it nagged at me for weeks although at the time I couldn’t figure out ( or failed to figure out) what the dream was telling me. I Still have it in my iPhone notes actually and just looked up what a raccoon refers to.
    Anyway, as it turns out I discovered 2 years ago that this guy turned out to be a true personality disordered covert narcissist.
    A mask no doubt! Uncanny. Thinking back all the red flags and warnings were there but I didn’t listen.
    Dreams can be powerful insight tools.

  13. Two months ago I came across an infant with it’s eyes still closed in the middle of the road and in need of rescuing. I did just that and it wound up in A wildlife refuge.
    Today I came across a full grown racoon injured by a car and unable to move or do naytting but lick it’s wounds. I’ve begun leaving food and water while I figure out what to do to help it.
    Until recently I’ve never even seen a live racoon, and now in two months I’ve met two in desperate need of help And no one else around to help besides me.
    What is the universe trying to tell me???
    Please weigh in

  14. I had a dream that a raccoon followed me into my house and wouldn’t leave me alone. She followed me everywhere I went and I had to climb on furniture to try to escape her. I then realized she had brought her babies in with her and they began following me too.

    • My dream was very similar. The mother raccoon was trying to get in under a door in my home, but kept blocking and then I looked down at the floor and she had pushed her babies under my door. I didn’t know what to do. I got the broom to sweep the babies out and I woke up.

  15. Had a dream of a pet raccoon. She attached my house and bit my thumb, but then would not leave. I had to remove hanging objects from doors to close her out but immediately felt horrible. Through the glass she was mouthing to me in English, asking me to see me tomorrow.
