Author Kathryn C. Bode, a trained animal rehabilitator, has completed her new book “Raccoons in Our Bathroom”: the heartwarming true story of the first summer Kathy Bode and her husband Gordon spent raising orphan raccoons in their home.

Kathryn writes, “Ricky caught on to getting the milk from that improvised bottle
pretty quickly and, in the middle of being named, christened himself by unscrewing the bottle lid. The milk splashed all over both of us. Most of his first meal in captivity was sucked off from his fur, my hand, and my clothes. After an hour of eating and being played with, Ricky curled up in his box and slept. Kristin gave him a stuffed animal to keep him company. I put a towel over the box and placed it on the picnic table just in case any loose dogs came by while we were busy elsewhere.”

Published by Page Publishing, Kathryn C. Bode’s unusual story follows Kathy and Gordon’s adventure in raccoon-raising, beginning that fateful summer with just two one-pound orphan raccoons, but leading them into a life of animal rehabilitation. With permits from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Kathy and Gordon continued to raise orphaned wildlife for over twenty years.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “Raccoons in Our Bathroom” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
